In an official blog post, where Team Chrome breaks its birthday news, it also reflects on its three S principles – Speed, Simplicity and Security and breaks these further down to note changes that the past year has seen. Chrome believes to have locked the speed aspect with the introduction of the 'Crankshaft' search engine, thereby taking the Javascript performance to a 66 percent high. Chrome claims to have speedened up the search process, courtesy an improved settings interface. Chrome Instant, by completing your searches, or guessing close does make for a faster experience.

Team Chrome also claim to have made the experience a lot more simpler, and accessible, so much so that the visually-impaired, too, claimingly find no hiccups in using it. Security also seems to be a plus point for Chrome, wherein an integrated 'Sandbox PDF viewer' allows viewing of PDF files without having to download any additionally software. 

Now with the Chromebook, and the Chrome Web Store coming along well, it seems to have been a worthwhile journey. Happy Birthday, Chrome!
