    Google Chrome looks like a great web browser 

    Just today I downloaded Google Chrome, Google’s new internet web browser. Yesterday Google announced that they would be releasing Chrome today. The news was all over tech blogs. Google Chrome installed surprisingly fast and has been working absolutely fabulous. This web browser is only available for Windows and Linux right now but they said that Chrome will come out for Mac soon.¬†Currently Chrome is in beta, but it is a very reliable web browser that hasn’t crashed or lagged once on me yet.

    The one thing that I love about Chrome is it’s simplicity. Chrome is the most simple web browser I have ever seen. All it has is tabs on the top with the web address bar right under it. The back, forward, and refresh buttons are to the right of the address bar and tools and preferences to the right. I think that this gives Google a big advantage over many other web browsers, because I’m sure that everyone wants things to be simple. You may notice that I didn’t talk about a search bar. That is because that the search bar is integrated into the address bar, all you have to do is start typing, click enter and your searching Google!

    If you want to download Google Chrome you can go to this link. I would highly suggest downloading Chrome, it looks like it is set to be a fantastic internet browser.

      Dude, it’s not available for Linux yet, much to my disappointment. It’s looking good.

      it will be interesting to see if Chrome can get as much market share as Firefox; for now they seem to have leveled off…

    Why are teachers against Google? 

    It seems in every single project that I do for my school, the teachers say every time “No using Google!”, this is in school at least. This also is a huge deal to them with Google Images too, because they think that something inappropriate will come up. Now I know that there are things that can come up on your search can be “bad”, but if you take some precautions it can solve the problem sometimes.

    Another service that my school teachers are against is Wikipedia. I think their main reasons that they don’t like this site is the fact that almost anyone can get on the pages and edit them. But I don’t think that they check into this at all. 1. The pages are checked sometimes, and 2. Most of the pages have references to ensure that there is valid information. So, I think that all the teachers need to relax about Google and Wikipedia. One thing that they could do is check them to make sure that the information is reliable in head of time then give them to their students later.

    There are also other reasons why not using Google can be bad. Google gives me great websites with great information. The other option that the teachers give us is things like nettrekker.com or ebscohost.com. These sites are good but they always seem to lack a lot of good detailed information. Another thing is, they aren’t going to know if you used google or yahoo. They are basically the same exact thing, and usually come up with close to the same results.

    So, do you use Google for school projects? What do you think about this?
