Google Chrome contains many new features that can be harnessed by developers and webmaster to deliver a better end-user experience. The JavaScript virtual machine used by Google Chrome also, the V8 JavaScript engine, has features such as dynamic code generation, hidden class transitions and precise garbage collection. This means that you can create more complex and more intensive AJAX applications with fewer speed and processing constraints with V8 engine.

Test your website in Google Chrome

If you are a web developer or webmaster, there are several useful tools to help you test your website in Google Chrome:

  • JavaScript Debugger
  • Click the Page icon, and then select Developer > Debug JavaScript to open the JavaScript Debugger window. You can also press the hotkey Ctrl+Shift+L. Type help for a list of commands. There is an article Sample debug session with Google Chrome JavaScript debuger from

  • JavaScript console
  • JavaScript console is a component of Google Chrome web inspector that analyzes the JavaScript code and any script errors associated with a specific webpage element. To launch JavaScript console window, click Page icon, and then select Developer > JavaScript console (or press Ctrl+Shift+J).

  • Web Inspector
  • Right-click on any component on a web page and then select Inspect element to launch the web inspector. You'll be able to see the elements and resources associated with the component on which you clicked, including a hierarchy view of the DOM and a JavaScript console.

  • Task Manager
  • Use the Task Manager to get details (memory, CPU, and network) about all running Google Chrome processes, or to force a misbehaving tab or application to close. To open the task manager, click the Page menu icon, then select Developer > Task Manager (or press Shift+Esc).

I love Chrome, falling in love with it since the first touch. And now had blindsided with it too.

I've started using Chrome this month, and I really like it. Didn't expect that it works so well.
