In my opinion, The Architecture of Chrome is built upon an entirely different approach than the browsers we have in the market
– looks like they have designed the browser with Process Isolation instead of multi-threading == STABILITY + SECURITY
– And they are using WebKit for Rendering UI (used by Android) == SPEED
– Omnibox == MORE USABILITY
– SandBoxing per Process == REMOVAL OF PROCESS BOUNDARY BUT WITH SECURED RIGHTS [MALWARE CAN COMPUTE BUT CANNOT TOUCH COMPUTER RESOURCES]
– Integration with Google Gears == EXTENSIBILITY
Seems to have a pretty solid foundation w.r.t Design and Architecture…
I faced few problems after the installation of google chrome, Got a pop up message saying “Failed to Initialize the application properly”, was totally annoyed after seeing this message. This was my first installation of google chrom on my laptop. Later consulted with my colleagues many of them had the same problem, and this was due to Symantec End Point Protection i guess.. Following was the tweak performed to get it working
Use the following:
1. Right-click the shortcut for “Google Chrome” on your desktop and goto “Properties”.
2. In the target field, append “–no-sandbox” and Save.
And if the above doesn’t work – then try:
1. Back up the registry on an affected system.
2. Open the registry on the Agent system by entering regedit from a run prompt.
3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services \SysPlant.
4. Open the Start DWORD.
5. Change the value to 4 to disable the drivers.
6. Reboot the system to commit the changes. It started working fine after restarting the system. I followed the 2 nd step. Enjoying surfing Using Google Chrome
