From Chrome with Love

A million bloggers all posting on the same topic, why shouldn't I join in. The Google chrome team has got to be enjoying themselves right now. I read the comic yesterday and really enjoyed it. Seeing a company I can't help but admire sit down and rethink the browser in so thorough of a manner is inspiring. Even just the QA involved is pretty damn impressive.

I've been using the chrome browser for a day now and have to same I'm pretty happy with it. I can already feel a need for some of the firefox extensions that I rely on so heavily, but at the same time I feel more productive and less distracted in this browser than I do in firefox. It's FAST, really fast on my machine at work. I can't wait until this is available for my mac.

I really enjoyed this article from John Siracusa, it sums up nicely what I find so inspiring about this and points out the real motivation for Google to create yet another browser.
