Google Chrome Browser seems to be perfect lightweight browser and might become Firefox killer. Memory consumption of Google Chrome is very low and way web pages loads seems to be even faster then Firefox 3.
We have already published two article for Google Chrome, Unavailability of Google Toolbar for Google Chrome and second one, Google Chrome Offline Stand alone installer.
Here is another even more intresting post related to Google Chrome. Users have already started Reverse Engineering Google Chrome and found out 7 hidden chrome pages or call it as Seven Google Chrome Configuration Parameters.

there is an about:memory also ;-)
Hmm Lets just add on to what firefox allready has and credit google for it, come on people
for those of us that keep many tabs open at once, having all of them run as a separate process quickly supersedes the memory usage of firefox. the crash protection of running the tabs in separate processes is negligible compared to running a crash manager that restores the lost tabs for you. the only thing i can say that i like so far is that the navigation bar is uncluttered, but i am sure as more and more plug-ins are developed for this platform that will change.
Believe me this page did not load in Chrome, had to hit refresh couple of times and yet it was broken.
Just for fun, about:Crash is there as well. Not overly useful though.
Don’t forget about:internets. Easter-egg!! :D
Don’t forget about:internets :)
Easter egg: about:internets
Whoa, Chrome crashed :)
Type following in chrome’s address bar: about: with % (percentage sign)
and then “Whoa”.
Thanks for some cool tricks about chrome. am searching for chrome plugins, is nyone knows from where i can get those.
Try about:% and you will be pissed off lol…
Google Chrome is awesome! I didn’t realise it used portions of Safari and Apple Web Kit until I used that about: thing. But this page loaded fine!
I did notice though that Chrome has issues using SSL via Proxy that requires authentication though…
Smart google. They take the best out of everything in one lightweight browser. Cool idea.
Google Chrome is just a temp “Hype”, and people need to read the privacy statement, When you install it you “Agree” and Alow Google to use your crash report and other files they need to see whats the problem.
This is done with out a warning. “Well you were warned in the installation”
Above= 0 Privacy
Just uncheck the box in options if you dont want to send crash info….
lets talk about what this browser doesn’t have.
Some users may like the novelty but I’ll stick with 2 secure browsers Firefox and Opera instead.
Those easter eggs r back with developers??
i have simple question!
how to ORGANIZE BOOKMARKS,BACKUP BOOKMARKS i.d.?
without possibilities of installing the roboform toolbar, chrome is not an option :-) otherwise its so great…. so please add support for toolbars?
Anyone can point to a command-line flag list for chrome?
At chrome 188.8.131.52
This is betta but…. you know…
Some of configs works, but not all… :(
what about about:about?
gives you a nice list of About pages in chrome (8 beta)
the “about:network” and “about:status” don’t seem to be working for me…
My Shock Wave keeps Crashing on it. My other browser don’t have the same crash. So I now know its about Google Chrome and looking for a solution.
The ‘about:’ doesn’t work any longer, at least for the Mac version of Chrome; however, you can still access the hidden pages, just replace ‘about:’ with ‘chrome://’.
Hi guys, try it chrome://chrome-urls/ ;-)
coolies! mine’s coolnovo (not google) and it works! (er, omit the ;-) it gives a list of the ones it accepts.
It is now chrome://about
