Google Chrome As of March 2014, StatCounter estimates that Google Chrome has a 43% worldwide usage share of web browsers, making it the most widely used web browser in the world.[13] History[edit] Google's Eric Schmidt opposed the development of an independent web browser for six years. Announcement[edit] The release announcement was originally scheduled for September 3, 2008, and a comic by Scott McCloud was to be sent to journalists and bloggers explaining the features within the new browser.[17] Copies intended for Europe were shipped early and German blogger Philipp Lenssen of Google Blogoscoped[18] made a scanned copy of the 38-page comic available on his website after receiving it on September 1, 2008.[19] Google subsequently made the comic available on Google Books[20] and mentioned it on their official blog along with an explanation for the early release.[21] Public release[edit] An early version of Chromium for Linux, explaining the difference between Chrome and Chromium Development[edit]

Google Chrome Experiments Google Chrome Experiments is an online showroom of web browser based experiments, interactive programs, and artistic projects. Launched in March 2009, Chrome Experiment is an official Google website that was originally meant to test the limits of JavaScript and the Google Chrome browser's performance and abilities. As the project progressed, it took the role of showcasing and experimenting latest open-source web-based technologies, such as JavaScript, HTML5, WebGL, Canvas, SVG, CSS, and some others. All the projects on Chrome experiments are user submitted and are made using open source technologies. As of August 1, 2013, there are 680 different Chrome projects posted on the website. History[edit] Major technologies used[edit] Chrome Experiments was originally started to demonstrate the usability of JavaScript alone, but with time it has now become a platform to showcase capabilities of some other open-source web based technologies such as WebGl, HTML5, SVG, and Canvas element. HTML5[edit]
