Hey folks! We hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend, but now we’re back at it at PR/PR HQ. On this week’s agenda? Birthdays! It was mine last week, but today we’re celebrating Google Chrome’s birthday.
Don’t freak out, but it’s been 10 years since the ubiquitous search engine launched its own internet browser and released you from the digital hell that is Internet Explorer.
Since its inception, Google Chrome has revolutionized the possibilities of online search engines, providing extensions for each and every little thing you could want, rendering our sticky note password system useless, and blocking all of the awful popups that turned your monitor into a computerized nightmare.
Google is teasing a surprise for Chrome today in celebration of it hitting its tweenage years, and rumor has it that it will be a complete overhaul of the browser. Gmail recently updated its interface, so we’ll keep an eye on any Chrome updates as the day progresses.
So Happy Birthday, Google Chrome, and thank you for rescuing us from Internet Explorer.
