Google Chrome is interesting!
Why did Google ‘leak’ the news about Chrome on Labor Day holiday? Is it because the new browser has features seemingly borrowed from IE 8 Beta (single tab crashes, private surfing)? Whatever the reason, I really appreciate Google innovative effort at marketing Chrome with a comic book that reveals the innards of this browser built from scratch. Chrome has a clean, minimalistic interface and things just seem faster. Some things don’t work for me – Facebook photos, for instance. Overall, I like this browser good enough to replace IE, but to replace Firefox, Chrome needs hell of a lot of tweaking!
