Google Chrome is a web browser developed by Google that uses the WebKit layout engine and application framework.

Google Chrome

It was first released as a beta version for Microsoft Windows on 2 September 2008, and the public stable release was on 11 December 2008.

Google’s Chief Executive Eric Schmidt opposed the development of an independent web browser for six years.

He stated that “at the time, Google was a small company”, and he did not want to go through “bruising browser wars”.
After co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page hired several Mozilla Firefox developers and built a demonstration of Chrome, however,
Schmidt admitted that “It was so good that it essentially forced me to change my mind”.
