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.
