Google Chrome Emerges as Browser King in Recent Tests

There are three things that we need to report regarding Google and the Chrome browser: according to a recent test conducted by Extreme Tech, Chrome is miles ahead of the competition; as soon as next year we may purchase systems with Google Chrome pre-installed; last but not least, the current CEO of Google, is rumored to step down from the position he holds within the company.

Let’s start with the bad news first, this way we’ll get them out of the way fast and focus on the software. Eric Schmidt, CEO with Google, will presumably leave the Mountain View company in order to take up a position in the Obama administration. Financially speaking, having the person who built up Google from an $86 million to a $20 billion (in revenues) company in the middle of a financial crisis, is not good, not good at all.


Since we started in reverse order, let’s go with the flow. Google is determined to make its Chrome browser a big hit, even though so far it has encountered much opposition. According to Sundar Pichai, Vice President of product management with Google, the marketing team behind the Chrome software product is seriously considering negotiations with original equipment manufacturers (OEM) which will lead to computers being sold with a preinstalled version of Chrome on them.

And now the best news we’ve heard from Google since yesterday when we reported that a Chrome update was released to the general public. Extreme Tech recently conducted a test on several popular web browsers and awarded points according to their performances. The results are as follows: Google Chrome scored 30 points, Mozilla Firefox scored 20 points, and Opera scored just 10 points, while Apple Safari and Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 did not even get enough points to make the top. Several features were put to the test: JavaScript speed; browser extensions; Acid3 compatibility; Adobe Flash; JavaScript Library and Framework; browsing speed. It must be noted that Google Chrome did not come in first every test, but overall it got the most points.
