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. Â It will be launched tomorrow in close to 100-countries. Â For now, I believe it’s limited to the Windows beta version though. Â Rightly so if they’re taking on Microsoft first hand. Â 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.Â
I personally believe that doing a browser program as open-source from ground-up is a good idea. Â There’s nothing like user power. Â 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. Â
Oh and do pass by their Wikipedia page for more information.
