Web Browser Alternative

Do you find that your current web browser is frequently not as responsive to your genealogy research efforts as you would like? Would you like to speed things up? Don't want pages you visit to show up in your web history? Want a new way to browse the web?

You might do well to check out “Google Chrome” -- a relatively new web browser for computers using the Windows operating system (Windows Vista and Windows XP SP2). Release of a Mac version is under development.

For complete information (including a video on the story behind Google Chrome) and “free” download capability, go to <http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/features.html>.

You can still continue use of your current browser(s). If you do download Google Chrome as an alternative (not your primary) browser, you might want to consider making its home page your favorite genealogy website. Just a thought!

“Portable Google Chrome” is available if you want to install on a USB stick.
