Checking Out Google Chrome and Chromium

Anyone who has been paying attention to tech news has heard about the explosive appearance of Google Chrome (Figure 4.2), which has gone from being the new kid on the block to a firm contender for most popular browser in just a few years. This browser is fast, secure, expandable with extensions, and the hottest new toy on geek desktops.

You can learn more about the easy installation of Google Chrome at www.google.com/chrome?platform=linux.
