Inside Google Chrome - Google's Intent to Crush IE

So, practically everyone on the internet is talking about Google Chrome right now, and I'm writing this article using it.

My findings are that it's really fast to use, the interface although slightly weird in the blue hue makes sense with it's simplicity and tabs being above the address bar, and the install was a dream. Also, simply count how long it takes to load - faster than Firefox, faster than IE (which is preloaded in part by Windows) - it's lighting fast!

Reading the comic Google published I really liked the approach to design, the V8 compiled javascript VM and the process seperated tabs and enhanced security model.

One thing I found really interesting was this article from wired:

What's really cool about this article is that it gives you an inside story on the development of Chrome, who the developers are and why it was built.

Whether you like Chrome or not, it can only be good news for the browser market. Yes, as a web developer I now have another browser to worry about (although it is based on WebKit like Safari, so perhaps minor differences?), but having such a major player hit the market with a browser offering will force all others to raise their game.

Unlike the introduction of IE8, Chrome is now my current default browser.
