Google Chrome

Google announced it will make searching faster and simpler

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has announced that to make searching faster and simpler, the company would be rolling out a streamlined New Tab page for Chrome. If you happen to be using Google as your default search engine, then the next time you open a new tab in Chrome, you’ll be able to see the search bar, which will be in the front and center of the page, from where you can quickly perform a Google search. From this page, you’ll also be able to see the current Google Doodles.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has been currently rolling out these changes, so don’t worry if you’re not able to see the streamlined New Tab page soon. Here’s how the page will look like once it’s released to all.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has clearly mentioned that this feature would only be available to those who have set Google as their default search engine. Also, this feature is based on open APIs, which means any search engine can integrate with the new ‘new tab’ page in Chrome.

Google another step toward faster search

Of course, we can always simply type what we want to search on the omnibox and hit enter, but some users like to open a new browsing session from a new tab. In such a case, a user will have two choices: either he can use the omnibox to search on Google, or he can use the new big search box from the new tab page.

As per Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), this is their “another step toward faster search in Chrome.” Sometimes even milliseconds count, and if Google can reduce that time, then why not.
