Google Chrome – Installation

Chrome just came out, and I downloaded it and have it installed.  Expect a review here once I have time to kick the tires a little bit.

One thing that made me chuckle during the installation was a dialog box that popped up when I told Chrome to import my settings from Firefox:

Sadly?  I’m impressed they feel so compassionate about the fact that Firefox was open on my computer.

Anyway, the first 3 minutes of messing with Chrome have been a series of “oooh cool!” moments for me.  Look for more opinions soon…

Google Chrome – The GBrowser

Holy friggin moly Google is coming out with a web browser tomorrow.

Presenting Google Chrome.

This should be interesting.

I can only wonder:

  • Will it have plugins that could ever match those of Firefox?  Enough to lure me away?
  • What will standards support be like?  Will it pass the Acid3 test?
  • How pervasive will it end up being?  Could it really be the Windows killer?
  • How will it tie into Google apps, docs, search, and services?

I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow…
