The practical aspect seminar in degree course is to correlate the theory with the practical aspect and to make students familiar with practical difficulties, which arise during working on the field so that they can face challenges boldly while actually working in the field. The field of information technology has become so vast that it is different to know it’s boundaries. Usually unskilled persons are engaged in this field thus it is important and necessary to have persons with technical knowledge, so that the work can be performed with proper perfection, as it is my first experience to write such a report.

Due to this features it was obsereved that when it was launched it was downloaded 10 million time during the first work was performed by the programmers on this web browser.tabbed interface.

But engineering has been affected. it released its first beta of the Chrome Web browser. Suddenly.2012 declared to be the third most important browser that are used widely and on the basis of percentage it can be classified to 7.DEPARTMENT OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY Regional College For Education Research and Technology-Jaipur Seminar Session.0.2011 . But it also brought some Google-y values: a fast foundation for Web applications and a rapid release cycle.6. mostly in that Mozilla had to answer numerous questions about how Chrome would affect its future."
