Oh my God! It’s here and it’s out to get us all! Run for your lives!
Uhm, okay. I’m exaggerating. But Google’s latest move, is it really a bad thing? Well, if you have been living under the Internet rock for the past couple of days, then you might have missed the big announcement – Google will be launching Chrome. And Chrome, ladies and gentlegeeks, is Google’s very own web browser. Yup, that’s Google’s way of kicking Mozilla in the nuts then saying FU to Internet Explorer. Safari and Opera are there to watch too.
To help us understand what’s the big deal with Chrome, Google was kind enough to make this comic that explains all the goodies Google engineers have packed into this thing.
My take on it? Well, I have to update my take over a couple of days using it. It is streamlined and is quite a bit faster than my Firefox (probably because this doesn’t have any plug-ins load) and my Firefox has a lot running.
Too bad this baby is only available on Beta for Windows XP and Vista only.
