Chrome is Google's latest foray into the browser market. Although it does not enjoy much widespread use, it has created a cult following amongst "Googlites", who claim it to be far superior to IE and even the more popular (also WebKit-based) Firefox.


Google announced on Friday, July 10th that they have been working on an Operating System due for release in the second quarter of 2010.

On September 2nd, 2008 Google released their Chrome browser as an intended competitor to IE, Firefox, Safari and Opera.


chromium is an open-source browser project to help move the web forward and is the open-source project behind Google Chrome. Google invites developers to join them in their effort to "build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web, and to create a powerful platform for developing a new generation of web applications".

Lighthouse was originally a tool used internally at Google by their various Dev teams to measure various performance-related criteria of their products/services, particularly as an alternative to Yahoo's YSlow website performance evaluation tool which was optimized only for HTTP 1.0 best practices; whereas Lighthouse was designed to be more easily kept up-to-date to support evolving web standards (such as HTTP 1 to 2.x then 3.x and beyond; among other topics like PWAs and A11Y which are also fast-evolving technologies). It was eventually decided to be a worthwhile tool to open source and offer to other developers to use to optimize their products/services as well (as this benefits Google through improved Search Result quality and extended Ad Network page load times).

They first released Lighthouse as a Chrome extension with Chrome 44 (2016)[8], and as a core part of the Dev tools in Chrome Canary 58 (2018)[9], making it a permanent fixture since that version's release[10].

EULA Issues

Shortly after the release of Google's Chrome browser, a substantial number of users raised concerns over the restrictions of the End User License Agreement.
