The movement started when prizewinning metallurgists Sergey Brin and Larry Page discovered that Chromium would be the perfect material for an internet browser because it can carry data at a blazing speed of 10100 mph. Following an open campaign by volunteer miners, they injected codes such as C++ and
<html> into the substance and shaping it
to smash windows for the Windows operating system. However, the development stage stretched out to 20-30 minutes a few years and went way over budget, meaning that Google had to increase the number of adverts on sites it owned, such as YouTube.
The development of Google Chrome, as stated above, was very slow. Google software engineers, who were
enslaved forced hostaged paid well to develop chrome, were at their wit's end. They couldn't find a way to make the substance properly usable inside a computer. Google knew this was bad. They knew if they couldn't finish developing chrome, nothing will happen. People would go on with their happy lives, and the masses would see Google as it usually is. They might even make extra money for not having to market Chrome. It was a horrible prospect. They had to do something.
That's when Google called all the shots for Chrome. They gave the chrome team Google's 25 secret herbs and spices to aid with the development; they also gave them some used V8 engines to speed them up. The Android team came and helped too. They suggested that the chrome browser should run on the webkit engine, due to it's proneness to virus infection. They noted how the public loves to be infected with viruses, As the Android team CEO states:
|“||The public loves viruses. Whether it's a computer virus, a real virus, a deadly virus, whatever! They love it! I mean, if they hate it, why would there be so many virus infections worldwide? Why would there be so many deaths to viruses everyday? Think about it. There's no way all of this was involuntary. Humans are smart creatures; they know what they want. If they hate viruses, they wouldn't have been infected in the first place.||”|
The development of Chrome went smoothly from then on.
Google Chrome was announced on August 31st 2008 and publicly released for Microsoft Windows on September 2nd 2008 in 43 "languages". The browser had been downloaded 24 times by the next day. Most analysts credited the achievement to the browser's ability to not explode like a certain other browser (It has, however, been reported on many occasions to commit murder, though analysts dismissed this fact as a minor issue). On October 24th, 2008 Google was sued for killing various pages that include Yahoo, Wikipedia, and more. In December 2009, Google released a version compatible with the Linux, Bieber Macintosh and Smooth Cop operating systems.
Getting and installing Chrome
The easiest way to get Chrome is of course, downloading it. But since it's a metal substance, rather than a software, the downloaded item is just a picture of the product. Fortunately, for the people willing to get a real copy of Google Chrome, Google provides a 23-hour hotline at 555-GOOGLEISGOD.
Once the hotline is called, Google will ask the caller to state which variation of Chrome they require. Based on the substance's origins, The caller has a choice of many variations; some of the most well known being "Stable", "Beta", "Dev", "Canary", and, to a lesser extent, "Nightly". As the names suggests, these variations are made to adhere with the many consumers' diverse demands; with "stable" designed for stability, "dev" designed for developers, "canary" designed for canaries, "nightly" designed for the dark knight, and "beta" designed for Google's experimental beta-ray guns. After the caller has made their choice, their order will be passed down from Google's mission control; and will be deilvered to the caller's doorstep trough a high-tech, sophisticated, and secretive airbourne system, which has a ground-breaking 50% chance of reaching the receiver. If it does reach the receiver, they will receive a patented Chromium-made chip which they must jam into their computer with a mallet. Once this process has been completed, the Chromium chip will be melted by your flaming computer and harden on the inner cables, creating a new layer able to cope with even the heaviest amounts of Internet data.
Google Chrome has many features, including;
- Themes: Starting with Chrome 3.0, you could choose from a range of "themes", which are more or less what color your browser background would be. There are a wide range of themes, such as 50 Cent and S&M. Tech-savvy people can actually design their own themes and upload them to an online gallery, although this was revealed to be a large-scale pyramid scheme in 2010.
- Incognito Mode: An interesting feature which can also be found on Internet Explorer as "Porn Mode", opening an Incognito window blocks any tracking devices (well, apart from the ones made by Google) and does not add your actions to the browser history. Many critics have admitted that Incognito mode has left them feeling "secure".
- Support from Google: It's a good thing having friends in high places.
- Separate Process for Each Tab: If a virus or dodgy website is located in one tab, it is isolated immediatly and Chrome ensures that it will be blocked in the other tabs. Or, to put it simply, your computer will go BOOM due to the extreme overload. When told about this side-effect, Google provided hardhats. Later versions, however, have made it so that in the onset of a crash all tabs and extensions are lumped into one big task again, which crashes instantly.
The cons to using Google chrome are listed below:
- Many people consider Internet Explorer the reigning browser and will happily beat up Chrome users over it.
- Being a merciless corporation, Google riddled Chrome with viruses.
- If your computer explodes, you'll die in the process, even with a hardhat.
- The Chrome substance is highly acidic.
Google or any of its parent corporations are not responsible for any damage done to your computer, you, your family, your cat, your dog, your mouse or your house. Legal action will be taken if you attempt to take legal action. If Google Chrome seems to malfunction it's still not our fault. Umm... it's all Bill Gates' fault! Him and Steve Jobs! Yeah, blame them (...you jerk...)!
