Facebook shines on Google Chrome

Web developers and website owners all over the world are up making sure that their applications are compatible with Google Chrome. In my Hands On Test Drive, I reported that some of the websites and features were not fully functional due to the fact that Chrome caught the world by surprise. Well in their latest update today, Facebook has resolved most of the issues on Chrome, thanks to the people who work through the night just to make the web a better place.

In their comic book, Google claimed that the web is their home, and they “live on the web”. So its no surprise that Google is up working with various engineers making their applications compatible with Chrome. The latest Java Runtime release candidate fixed various Java related issues in Chrome, while Flash Player 10 preview, codenamed Astro, now also fully supports the Google browser.

Chrome’s main competitor would be the recently previewed Shiretoko (aka Firefox 3.1) which is based on Gecko 1.9.1. It will be featuring TraceMonkey, which is a native code compiler for Mozilla’s JavaScript engine SpiderMonkey. This new engine is expected to go head to head with Chrome’s V8, meaning that if standards aren’t in place, our favorite site are going to fall to pieces.

While most sites (including Facebook) still have issues on Shiretoko, Chrome has all the advantage it needs to take over the #1 spot in Web Browsing technologies. For now you can feel safe and assured that your favorite sites will not break on Chrome anymore.
