  1. 1. What are your initial thoughts of the browser?

    • I like the browser very much. The lightweight UI with the near lightning load times have me addicted and I probably will not turn back to alternative browsers

    • It is a very solid release but I will be staying with my choice of web browser

I was just talking to David Atwell over IM when I recieved a crazy email about Google Chrome, a new web browser. It was meant to be announced on September 3rd with the Beta Release coming out the day before the announcement however one blogger managed to get their announcement comic the day before the Beta Release and as such it was announced on the Google Blog. Obviously this is quite big and so I wanted to know your thoughts before the beta is actually released and after you get your hands on the new software. Do you think this is a big move for Google? Do you believe tis is the right company to release a standards compliant browser? Do you think the features will compell you enough to make a switch?

I sincerely doubt that Google will be removing their support for search boxes in Firefox. They're making a TON in ad revenue there, and I can't see them turning from that.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

It's only seven a.m. in California right now.

Google is holding a press conference today at 11 am California time about google Chrome. I assume, then, that Google Chrome will be released either during, or more likely, shortly after. I am not even excited this much about my wedding next spring! (JK! I am much more psyched about that than some web browser!)

The interesting thing in my mind is Microsoft. The gap between IE6 and IE7 was five years; IE7-IE8 is going to be a little over two (IE8 is due by the end of the year). I think it's directly related to the popularity of Firefox- I wonder now if, seeing Chrome, Firefox, and Opera in its rear-view mirror (and coming closer!), Microsoft is going to boost their IE team even more.

This is certainly going to be the year of the browser. Firefox 3, Opera 9.5, IE8, and Chrome. Even Safari released a developer version of their 4th edition this year. (Bleagh)

Just wow. :-)

They could have gone through a greater effort

Something like 85+ would have been cool

Honestly, I could care less what they rate it. I love it, and will refuse to go back to Firefox or IE until they start to implement some of Chrome's features, such as its speed!
