Google have rocked the internet world with the release of Chrome, yet another web browser to rival that of Microsofts Internet explorer, Mozillas Firefox, and Apples Safari.

Heres the thing, Googles Open Source web browser incorporates code and features developed by rivals Apple and Mozilla, in fact Apples WebKit is the rendering engine that forms the foundation of Chrome.

Several features are already key elements of other browsers. The speed dial homepage and placement of tabs are features of Opera, while the privacy mode is already implemented in Internet Explorer 8. So whats going on here Has good copied, stolen, acquired call it what you will, the best key features of other browsers to incorporate into their own It seems so, in fact, its not just features from other browsers, Google has employed engineers that have previously worked on other browsers - software engineer Ben Goodger was previously the lead engineer for Mozilla Firefox.

So Google now enters the heated competition between web browsers.

Chrome will now challenge Microsofts Internet Explorer, whose newest version was released just weeks ago and Mozillas Firefox, which has almost 20 per cent of the global browser audience. There has been some talk in several camps about the resource hungry IE8 beta, and the slowness in which users have taken up the offer to try the latest beta version. This is the only way to really get an indication on the demand of Microsofts browser, as it normally becomes a system update which you have to download - like it or not.

Former Mozilla CEO Mitchell Baker said in her blog that Mozilla had created a competitive browser market and would continue to compete in it..

She says... Mozilla recognized long ago that an independent browser dedicated only to the public good is a necessary piece for building a healthy Internet. Many people thought this was silly and the browser was generally treated as simply a part of the Windows desktop and not important in its own right. These days we know thats not true.

Almost 200 million people have spoken by adopting Firefox; demonstrating how much the browser does matter. Yesterday Google announced that it will release its own browser, validating once again the central idea that this tool we call the browser is fundamentally important. Our first great battle that of relevance and acceptance has been won.

So as we head head-first into the world of high speed internet and rich web content, we now have another piece of software to add to the mix of a safe, and error free online experience. Its early days, but if Googles current success turns chrome, then watch out IE, Safari AND Firefox!
