Chrome

There were a few other things I was planning to write about today, but then Google went ahead and made its next move in the quest for global domination by releasing its long rumored browser.

It’s going to take a lot to make a Firefox junkie like yours truly abandon the competition, but the first impressions I got from it are promising.  The showy features (dynamic tabs, a task manager, and the privacy mode) are both impressive and potentially very useful.  I also like the streamlined design quite a bit, although it’s going to take some time to adjust to the location of the pop up blocker messages.  And being who I am, hiring Scott McLeod to create a tutorial comic certainly got my attention.

I’m not entirely set on migrating over from Firefox yet, but Google has managed to place the thought in my mind.  This is a nice package, and once third party developers start working on a few add-ons Chrome could prove a viable threat to both Firefox and IE
