    Google is launching its own web browser finally. Google Chrome as it will be called has been in development for over 2 years. It promises to deliver a browser that Gives more and Crashes less. The beta is supposedly being launched today.Check out the official Google blog for more details.

    The early bird gets the worm. But the 2nd mouse gets the cheese.

    Geez. Eventually, Goolge is going to have their own operating system LOL. Which they probably will...

    And BTW, here are some leaked screenshots of the browser.... http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/09/01...google-chrome/


    I am a exsellent speller and I use grammer very good.

    Actually, it says it's going to be launched tomorrow. (maybe that's "today" over there?)

    I just can't imagine anything replacing Firefox though.

    Well it says the article was posted on Sept. 1st, so tomorrow is today. I heard rumors it was gonna launch around 2pm ET... guess we'll find out in a few minutes.

    It'll replace FF for me if it really is as stable as Google says it's going to be. But now that each tab is its own process, I wonder how overall system performance will be affected.

    It's here! I just typed "/chrome" after the standard URL and it worked.

    • Ultramon doesn't appear to work on it, so I have no real multi-monitor support.
    • No option to open pages as windows instead of tabs. I fucking hate tabs.
    • During the install, I selected to import my setting, bookmarks, etc. from Firefox, but I see no bookmarks anywhere. There is only a "Bookmarks bar" which I have no desire for, not to mention that the bar doesn't even have my bookmarks in it. I have no idea what other "settings" it imported.
    • No ad blocker.
    • There isn't even a Google search bar. I have to open a new tab every thime I want to search for something.


    So far, I'm rather disappointed. It's a first release beta though and I like most everything Google releases... I have faith that it will get better. Back to FF for now though.
