Not really sure what you're asking. Google Chrome is a browser that let's you access the internet. Its basic function is just like any other browser (internet explorer, firefox, opera, safari, etc.) Google (which is what I think you mean by "plain old google") is a web search engine that lets you find other sites on the web based on keyword searches.

What is Google Chrome

What is Google?

You can access Google at any time by going to google.com or you can make it your default home page. Every browser lets you decide what page appears whenever you open your browser. For example, if you are using internet explorer, click the gear icon in the upper right corner and then click on internet options (see first screenshot.) A new screen opens and on the "general" tab you can specify what you want as your home page.

(In the second screenshot you will see that I want a blank home page. You could replace "about:blank" with google.com simply by going to google.com, clicking the gear icon > internet options > then clicking the "use current" button.)

Google Wave -- The future or just plain B/S
