Google released an improved version of Chrome on Thursday as the Internet titan's Web browser turned two years old.

"Looking back today on Chrome's second anniversary, it's amazing to see how much has changed in just a short time," product manager Brian Rakowski said in a blog post.

"All browsers have come a long way in the last two years and the Web has become much more fun and useful."

Web browsers are software programs that people use to access and navigate the vast sea of data on the Internet.

Google simplified the Chrome interface and made the color scheme "easier on the eyes" while making it faster and enhancing safety features such as warnings about websites that might be booby-trapped by hackers, according to Rakowski.
