Google Chrome Compatible With Lightstreamer

4 September 2008

Chrome, the new Google browser, was released yesterday as a beta version for Windows Vista/XP and officially entered the browser war, where the primary competitors are currently Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Chrome offers many interesting features, aimed at making the browsing experience more robust, more secure, and faster.

Lightstreamer, with its eight-year history, is the leading push server for live data distribution through the Web. Based on the AJAX/Comet paradigm, it is able to deliver real-time data to very normal Web pages, without painful plug-ins or downloads.

The Lightstreamer Web Client, which is based on pure JavaScript libraries, has been tested on Chrome Beta , leading to impressive results in terms of stability and performance.

“We have always had a strong commitment to the broadest browser support and to a prompt response to new browser arrivals”, said Alessandro Alinone, CTO and creator of Lightstreamer, “I am very satisfied that Lightstreamer runs smoothly on Google Chrome, without requiring special adaptations”.

Lightstreamer is currently employed by many financial institutions to push live market data to both Web browsers and thick clients. Furthermore, several online gaming companies have adopted Lightstreamer to make their users' experience more dynamic and responsive.
