Web browsers aren’t just for browsing anymore. In the early days of the World Wide Web, all you needed was a way to read text.

The Web browser has evolved into a platform for our digital lives, offering more interactivity while moving further beyond its passive browsing roots (i.e., checking e-mail, paying bills and balancing checkbooks, watching videos, social networking, playing games, networking and even managing a law practice). These applications and services work just fine within conventional Web browsers like Internet Explorer or Firefox, but only because developers have modified code, updated hypertext language standards, created browser add-ons and enhanced technologies like Flash and JavaScript. Google, however, wanted to see what would happen if a Web browser was built from scratch to support the exploitation of Web browsers today.
