Google Chrome?

September 02, 2008

I’m not entirely surprised that Google decided to release its own browser. Considering their whole web-based business model it was probably inevetible. Although you have to wonder how it’ll affect their funding of Mozilla.

What does surprise me is that I heard nary a peep before today’s beta. I feel like a back-country rube that just learned about horseless carriages.

Anyhow, here it is. I like that it’s open source (encourages other browser makers to see what good ideas they’ve created and theoretically incorporate them), but I admit that I’m curious how it’ll shake up the browser usage wars.

You can download it here, and see their official post about it here.
