Personally, while I’m excited about a lot of things in Google Chrome, I’ll keep quiet until the browser is actually available in beta. It sounds good though. One final thought, however. Google went with Webkit (used in Safari), not Mozilla’s Gecko engine. That’s got to hurt…

    A dawn of a new era? — There’s definitely not a soul who doesn’t know about the decade long microsoft and google rivalry.

I think I’ll stick with firefox till Chrome moves in and out of beta.
