Chrome is Google's Web browser. Announced in late 2008 by mistake, the company released it as a Windows-only download. The browser came with several forward-thinking features, like having each tab exist as its own process, as well as the capability to drag it outside of the browser to become its own application or new window. It also made every new tab its own start page with some of the most recently and frequently visited sites showing up in thumbnail form.

Chrome remains a Windows-only product for most consumers, however early versions exist for Mac and Linux users. Google is expected to release full versions for those platforms in late 2009.
