That does sound very nice, but I cant help feel for Firefox. I can see them getting brushed to one side a bit when Google start promoting this a bit more.

wow that comic is a nice take on things, lol i bet there are some none technical folk who might just understand that.

seems like a nice idea, i'll try it

i like that they're open sourcing to help out others too

it can only be a step in the right direction can't it? google have given us alot really

i remember the first time i EVER used the search engine, purely because someone showed me how fast it searched, and i guess its just gone from there lol i don't often use any other search engine now, i don't have any need to, google image search with piclens in firefox is beautiful and fast and helps you find what you're after a damn site quicker

(i recommend that to anyone who hasn't already tried it)

lets see how this goes i'll keep an eye out for a download

I can`t think of many google related things that I don`t delete off a persons pc the moment they ask me if I can clean it up for them.

Google have a bad habit of having a good idea, then having it grow into a marketing tool with hooks and upd8 links.

Could be different for this, but I dunno.

Sporting features such as 'isolated' tabs to prevent multiple tabs crashing
This is a great thing!

Might give it a bash when it's out in the future. Not beta though.

Amazing Browser!

Loads so fast. The tabs are in the corner, and it makes for an almost full screen experience.

I Wouldn't call it amazing tbh. It's just a blend of existing browsers. I like the look of it though.

Have you tried it? It's ridiculously fast and makes FF3 look bad.

Just trying this now.

It does seem to load things faster but this leads me to think it might not be as secure as FF3?

I will try it now and again but wont be setting it to my default browser just set.
