    Google web browser

    Google plans to launch a Web browser called Google Chrome in a challenge to Microsoft's Internet Explorer, the Wall Street Journal reported on its Web site.

    Great. It might be fast, but it will track every single damn thing you do.

    Pass. I'm back to using K-Meleon if I need speed on the PC, Camino on the Mac.

    I'm thinking likewise.

    I'm also thinking google wants to put itself in a better position for the yahoo MS aquisition.

    I haven't taken two seconds to check on it, but Google has always been good about giving a choice on install of sharing private information or not.
    Are you saying that if you choose "No way" they will still collect all your dirty secrets anyway?

    Not Google.com

    The browser looks interesting, especially the behind the scenes part (splitting it into processes, so only tabs crashes, and javascript can run in parallel), but the front end is pretty similar to other browsers, so nothing new there.

    Apparently the beta will be released in a few hours. Being Google, beta should be read as 'final product'.

    I like how they're so damn sure of themselves on the browser's security. How many days before the first critical exploit I wonder?

    Since it uses Webkit... I'd say that an exploit or three will be coming down the pipe in just under a week.

    Revolutionary use of tabs (the tabs will be at the top of the window rather than below the address bar).
    This is the single most ridicules argument! It is a tiny GUI layout change! Here is a list of the other revolutionary differences with the browser:
    • Revolutionary use of colors (The tab background will be blue, the main toolbar will look like IE 7 and be grey).
    • Revolutionary use of bookmark button (The button is to the left of the address bar, not the right. Apart from that it is identical to, and works just like the Firefox bookmark button).
    • Revolutionary use of the homepage (The homepage has 9 screen shots of web pages (like Opera), plus a tiny list in the upper right corner).

    As far as I know this is also how opera has worked since at least opera 7 (2002).

    Erm...each tab is a separate process, I call that pretty revolutionary.

    For those of you who read the comic, (arguably not the best way to announce a product), apparently they're doing bot testing too, which I'd be curious to learn more about.

    But now with Safari, AIR, iPhone, Android and Chrome using Webkit, things should get interesting.

    Begun, the Browser Wars 2.0 have...

    I'm not talking about the separate process part. Where you place the tabs has nothing to do with processes.

    And apparently IE8 has an individual process for each tab as well.
