One more browser to test against!

Browser compatibility issues are annoying. You cannot guarantee an application behaves similarly in all popular browsers without repeating the same set of tests in each of them. It is a headache!
To make the things worst for developers as well as testers, yet another browser has been added to the list.

Google recently announced the launch of their open source browser called Chrome. So, we now have one more browser to make our applications compatible with. Applications need to be designed in a way so that they work properly in all major browsers. Testers need to put some extra effort to make sure cross-browser issues are minimum. Also, UI automation tool kits should be made compatible with this new browser.

Google has released the beta on Windows first. Lets see what difference will this new browser make.
