Cyril Kowaliski of The Tech Report Writes:
"So, you've seen the news. Google has released an early beta of its first web browser, Chrome, which mixes elements from Safari and Firefox into a brand-new recipe. I could go into detail about the browser's fundamentals and features, but you might as well just try it yourself and read the introductory Google comic strip if you're after details.
Since I've ranted and raved about Internet Explorer 8 in two separate blog posts, I feel like sharing my perspective on a different effort. After all, Chrome has much in common with IE8. Both browsers come from massive software companies with gargantuan budgets, both browsers are early betas, and both browsers are more than simple evolutions from prior designs. Microsoft decided to outfit IE8 with a completely new rendering engine, while Google borrowed some of Chrome's building blocks from other browsers but built everything else from scratch."
