Can't wait to see how good it is. I just hope it works better than their new mail system. Everytime I login, I have to use the old gmail. Well, at least there's two things I get today. 1 my new laptop :D and 2 Google chrome.

I do not think that it will lead FX. Except the search engine google is behind of others on all other things

well, it is making use of WebKit, an engine that has been proven time and time again to be currently the fastest and most w3 compliant.

i have grown to like google docs, i love gmail, so this all makes sense to me for a total google solution.

Webkit's good. However, if it's the same engine as Safari, a good number of sites will not work with Chrome. They should have combined Webkit and Gecko.

go read the comic. they have allready addressed that issue, and fixed it.

they used google to throw web pages at it, and if something went wrong, the software code monkeys went in and fixed it. this is a webkit that will be better than what apple has, i think.

i mean, they threw there cache at it, and looked for incorrect renders so they could fix the webkit engine. come on!

Sorry, there will not be a unboxing video.

I'll post screenshots of Chrome though.

Let's see what google can do.

IE vs Firefox vs Opera vs Safari vs Chrome

Who will win? Will there be another to join.. maybe ;)
