Google Chrome – War of the browsers?!

Google enters a whole new domain with the launch of its browser, Google Chrome. The beta release date is scheduled for 18:00 GMT, September 2, 2008. This chrome apparently uses some of the virtualization techniques Google got to acquire with the acquisition of Greenborder. This article by Dave Methvin explains a bit about the greenborder issue and some more..

The timing of Google Chrome’s announcement is interesting because it comes just after IE8 has gone public with its feature set. Did Google pick this time to debut Chrome because it feels it already beats IE8? For example, IE8’s InPrivate Browsing is functionally similar to Chrome’s sandboxing…

. Google apparently released the news about the Google chrome release through an informative comic piece, another first for Google. Lets see what google official blog has to say about it..

  1. Check out our Chrome Browser review in a few days time at http://www.i-logo.net. We’d appreciate any comments and feedback!

  2. should be interesting to see if Chrome works more efficiently than FireFox and IE… if it’s faster than Firefox, since isn’t IE, then i’ll use it

  3. despite all the hype, google disappointed me with a late release for linux 😦

  4. it will be interesting to see if Chrome can get as much market share as Firefox; for now they seem to have leveled off…
