'Chrome' is the term used by developers to indicate how much pretty stuff surrounds the data one is presenting." - ZenTiger

I'm looking forward to the release of Google's new browser Google Chrome. The beta-testing download should be available at 11am according to my calculations, from here or here.

I find it hard to comprehend a browser any better than Firefox 3, however I expect that Chrome may win my devotion before to long. As a web-developer, I'm hoping/trusting that Chrome renders HTML just as Firefox would. I hardly think that Google would let us down there.

Zen makes another very interesting and important point, "I suspect this heralds a bigger push to host rich server based applications within browsers, as Google see this as a way to undercut Microsoft's huge control over the desktop. Chrome will not just be about browsing - it will try to be an operating system (OS) within the OS, or at the least, a rich application environment."

And the word from the Google blog,

"Under the hood, we were able to build the foundation of a browser that runs today's complex web applications much better. By keeping each tab in an isolated "sandbox", we were able to prevent one tab from crashing another and provide improved protection from rogue sites. We improved speed and responsiveness across the board. We also built a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, to power the next generation of web applications that aren't even possible in today's browsers."

Here's Google's nice little online comic book explaining all about Google Chrome and how it works...
