Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier
A few days ago I started to worry about Internet Explorer 8, about its privacy issues and about the impact this type of browser can have on the advertising market. The new feature, called InPrivate, can be the nightmare of any ad server.
I see Google has a similar feature in Google Chrome but they probably allow adsense to run free 🙂
Google announces a so-called incognito mode claiming that it “lets you browse the web in complete privacy because it doesnâ€™t record any of your activity”. No features of this, and no implications of the default mode with respect to Google’s database are given.
Time has an article explaining why the download link above might not work in some areas of the world (Google accidentally leaked Monday and they are not ready yet for global distribution – of course, this could easily be just another teasing campaign):
The software, which is in beta, will be distributed for free to PC users in over 100 countries via Google’s blog. (Mac and Linux versions are in the works.) Word of the impending launch accidentally leaked Monday when Google mistakenly sent a comic-book-style announcement, detailing Chrome, to a blog.
