Finally! Google has released the first official beta of Chrome for Mac. If you’ve been waiting for this for such a long time, you’d waste no time and download it to see how Google’s controversial browser works on your Mac.
So, what’s so exciting about Chrome for Mac, anyway? Â Well, if you’re like me who has been alternating between using Mac and Windows and you fell in love with Chrome on Windows the moment it was released,Â Chrome for Mac will give you the same feeling.
Google takes the whole Chrome for Windows experience to give us Mac users the same if not faster, cleaner and simpler browser. Chrome for Mac has the Omnibox feature, so say goodbye to the browser address bar and the search bar of Safari. You may now enter URL on or do a web search on one browser bar.
In addition, the several Chrome themes were also brought along, although I’m really looking forward to more Mac-optimized Chrome themes in the future.
But most importantly and perhaps what matters really is Chrome for Mac’s speed. Â Google claims that Chrome for Mac launches so fast that there’s hardly even time for the application icon to bounce in the dock. And Google was not kidding about it. Indeed Chrome for Mac knows what “fast loading speed” really means.
Alright, enough of the blabber. Stop reading now. Check out the attaced Â video showing how Chrome for Mac works or better yet download the Beta version on your Mac and experience using Chrome for Mac yourself. But before you do that, you might want to say goodbye to your Mac’s Safari browser first. You might not use it again.
