Chrome: Google’s New Browser

Googles new Chrome web browser was released in beta today. So far, I like it quite a bit. Its fast, the process-per-tab architecture really makes sense, and the awesome little comic book explaining it is brilliantly done. On Vista, the use of the aero glass is a really nice touch and I think the tabs on top really make sense.

I tried to test out the new v8 JavaScript engine it uses, but the SunSpider JS benchmark appears to be getting slammed at the moment. I wonder why :)

Now it just remains to be seen if this can get any market share and how everyone reacts to it. So far, I give it a thumbs up.
