Presentation: "Google Chrome: The Invisible Browser"

Time: Monday 11:30 - 12:20

Location: Lille Sal

Abstract: Google Chrome is Google's new web browser built for tomorrow's web. Aside from a sophisticated set of core technologies, it features a streamlined and innovative user interface. The key philosophy behind the user interface design has been "Content, not Chrome" where the prominence of the user interface is minimized to place emphasis on the pages and applications people are using online. Ben Goodger, Google Chrome's user interface tech lead will talk about the challenges faced balancing this approach with the feature set expected of a modern browser.
