Update 2020: This post is now outdated and archived, but feel free to read it to remember what it was like. ?
I’ve been using Google Chrome for some time already, and it became my default browser. I think it is pretty cool. It is very fast. I have also found out some unique features that Google Chrome has, the feature which no other browsers have.
Chrome’s Unique Features
Here is the list of Google Chrome’s unique features, the features that Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer don’t have.
1. Information on whether the site is loading or resolving
When the site is being resolved, Chrome will display this gray line, revolving slowly, counter-clockwise.
When the site is found and is being loaded, Chrome will show this blue line, revolving quickly, clockwise.
2. Task manager
Wow! A task manager inside a browser. It is just like a normal task manager, showing the processes and the memory it uses.
Here is the screen-shot of the task manager:
If your computer seems as though it is going to crash, you can open the Google Chrome task manager and see which tabs are using a lot of memory, and then end their processes so your computer won’t crash. Don’t worry. The tab won’t be closed, but instead show a crashed smiley.
If you reload that tab, the process will begin again. If you end a process such as shockwave flash, the flash object will show the crashed plugin smiley.
To open the task manager, hit ‘Shift + Esc’.
