Google’s Chrome browser is already making waves for PCs, but where it should really shine is when it’s coupled with Android to provide a new realm of mobile browsing. The fundamental technologies showcased in Chrome will make Android’s browser that much more unique, and open up a new world of mobile web-based applications.
Both Chrome and Android’s current browser both already employ Apple’s WebKit, an open-source project for the process of interpreting the HTML code that makes up a Web page and rendering it on a screen. It’s part of the technology used in the Safari browser for the iPhone which renders mobile-based web-pages in its full form. Google’s version will most likely even go above and beyond this.
