Google Chrome 8 years old today crowned the undisputed king of the browsers

Although it leaked a day before, on September 2, 2008 Google released officially the Beta version of Google Chrome, its brand new web browser. Google had been showing their support for Firefox, but finally decided to go on their own using as main weapons the rendering engine of Safari, WebKit, a new virtual machine that called V8, and a home page very similar to Speed dial Opera.

Eight years have passed since then, that even as little time he has served Chrome to overcome all browsers on the market makes it the absolute leader in the sector. And although lately are born new projects, it seems still very far off that one of them can dethrone the champion of Google.
