The technology I have chosen to research for BCM112 is the very popular web browser, Google Chrome.
The company, Google Incorporated, was co-founded in 1998 by Lawrence Page and Sergey Brin with their revolutionary search engine called Google. The beta software for the Google Chrome web browser was first released on the 2nd of September 2008 and has been healthily releasing updates for the software ever since. (Google Incorporated, 2008) This search engine was and still is one of the most popular search engines used today, it is ranked first above all others and is maintaining its position at the top according to statistics collected by StatCounter. (StatCounter, 2014)
At this point I don’t have any issues or concerns that I think need to be discussed. I view Google Chrome as a foundation to be built upon by Google Incorporated, its simplicity and minimalist finish allows it to be used by any user and I believe that this is why it is popular aside from the fact that it’s fast and free. Google itself has branched out into many different areas of human interest and are developing new technologies that add on to this web browser to make it a versatile tool for the common people of the world.
I don’t want to give too much information away about the technology I am researching or I won’t have much to talk about in future posts! I guess you’ll have to wait till the next one if you’re reading this.
Goodbye for now!
