Chrome : Google’s Open Source Browser


Honestly, I was both surprised and happy when I heard that Google’s taking on Microsoft head-on by introducing an open-source browser… Chrome.  It will be launched tomorrow in close to 100-countries.  For now, I believe it’s limited to the Windows beta version though.  Rightly so if they’re taking on Microsoft first hand.  But for the Mac and Linux fans, there is a promise of a special version for Leopard and beyond.

Google has published an online comics board to explain what Chrome is all about, you can see it right here. 

I personally believe that doing a browser program as open-source from ground-up is a good idea.  There’s nothing like user power.  With the community behind developments we are all sure that every feature will be born out of a real-life need, or a user demand.

Check out the comics they’ve published, I’ve somehow related to my usual wrestles with browser problems.  

Oh and do pass by their Wikipedia page for more information.
