in design

Wow, I’m kinda floored by how awesome Google’s new browser, chrome, is.

I’ve wondered how long it was going to take for Google to enter the browser market, what with their spiders, and their data tracking that they already do, not to mention their robust analytics, etc.  While I have my beefs with Google Ads (do yourself a favor:  don’t use them unless you don’t mind having them yanked out from under you even if you follow the EULA to the letter), for the most part, Google provides some incredible services at an even better (free) price.

What I think I like the most about chrome is the simplicity of it.  Like all Google products, the design is always functional, never about the form, and yet, they still accomplish an incredibly clean aesthetic with all the features you didn’t even know you wanted.

If you haven’t tried it yet, do yourself a favor and have at it.

This is pure design elegance.  It’s how browsing the internet was meant to be.
