Google Chrome

Little late to write this. I am sure by now most of you would have read and heard about the new Google Chrome Browser. But here are a few things that you may not know. Check it out anyway.
It gives away a lot of features. I have copied the context of this from site:

1.New Tab Page: For the first look it looks much like a Opera feature. According to Google, new tab page let's you see a visual sampling of your most visited sites, most used search engines, and recently bookmarked pages and closed tabs.
2.Application Shortcuts: This feature directly loads your favorite online applications. You can create a shortcut as follows:#Go to Page menu and select Create application shortcuts#select the checkboxes where you want shortcuts to be placed on your computer(Desktop,Start Menu, Quick Launch Bar).
3.Dynamic Tabs: This is really an awesome feature. Dynamic Tab feature let's you drag tabs out of the browser to create a new window. You can even gather multiple tabs into one window or arrange your tabs according to your wish.
4.Crash Control:In the Google Chrome each tab run independently in the browser, there by reducing the chances of crash of all the tabs if one application crashes at any time.
5.Incognito Mode: Web pages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito won't be logged in your browsing and download histories; all new cookies are deleted after you close the incognito window.
6.Safe Browsing: By the help of this feature, Chrome warns the user if the user is opening a unsafe website.
7.Task Manager:Google Chrome has it's own Task Manager which lets you kill any non-responsive tabs instantly.

Now the above crap is everywhere else, but read the following:
Just copied from some forum
Chrome is a shameless copy.
The speed dial - Opera
The address bar - IE 8 + FF3
Incognito - Safari & IE 8
Tabs as separate processes - IE 8
The name Chrome - Microsoft's codename for a multimedia browser years back.
Chrome consumes less memory (really very less) as compared to the resource hog - Firefox 3.
Shortcuts, if you like
Control + Shift + N : Opens the famous “incognito” windows. Thanks to it you will be able to surf without leaving any footprint on your PC (cookes, history etc.)
You can also open a website in an “incognito” window by right-clicking on a link and selecting: Open link in incognito window.
Alt + Home : Loads your Google Chrome home page along with thumbnails of your most visited sites.
Control + T : Opens a new Tab.
Control + Shift + T : Opens your most recently closed tab. Press this key combination again to open the tab closed before the one you just opened.
Control + 1, Control + 2, Control + 3, etc. : Lets you jump to different tabs.
Control + Tabs : Lets you open tabs in order.
As in Fireofx 3, you can drag a link onto a tab to it , or drop it between two tabs to open a new tab.
Control +B : Hides or shows the bookmark’s bar.
Control + H : Opens the History page.
Control + J : Opens the download page.
To delete an item from the download page, right-click on the selected item and click Remove.
Right-click the top of the browser window, select Task manager to find out how much memory tabs and plug-ins are taking from your computer to work. Select one of them and click End process to stop it running.
About:plugins (write it in the address bar): Lets you see what plug-in you are using.
About:crash (write it in the address bar): Lets you see what a crashed tab looks like.
To know more information about Google Chrome you can also type in the address bar the following commands: about:stats, about:network, about:histograms, about:memory, about:cache, about:internets.
To delete all of your data stored into Google Chrome: click the Tools icon and select Clear browsing data…
Shift + Escape: Lets you bring up the Google Chrome Task manager.
