In less scandalous news, Google's Chrome browser recently came out on top in a speed test. The folks over at ExtremeTech put Chrome through its paces. ExtremeTech has a fine article detailing the methodology it used to test the browser. They used 10 different speed test sites, a number of content-rich Web sites, and repeated all the tests on multiple computers. In the end, Chrome won. It beat out Firefox 3.04, Opera 9.6, and Safari 3.2. How fast is Chrome for you?
Lastly, Google has been fiddling with its Street Views user interface. Google has placed a lot of emphasis on its Maps product, and Street Views in particular. You'll recall that the most recent firmware update for the iPhone included the ability to see Street Views. Well, now the user interface of said street-viewing tool has been tweaked. According to CNet, the biggest change is that the Pegman (little icon dude) needs to be dragged and dropped to the spot you want Street Views to show. This beats the previous method of using a drop-down menu in terms of speediness. Also, the Street View has been enlarged. Rather than just a small window on the screen, it will fill the entire screen.
So there you have it, three pre-Turkey Day Google tidbits.
