Just one of an avalanche of tedious blogosphere reactions to google chrome. This afternoon I was reading the comic book (at work, I confess, but I wasn’t alone) and now I’ve downloaded it and this is written in it.
So far I haven’t seen any obvious advantages over firefox (other than the porno-viewing mode, of course :-) but I’ve read what they say and maybe it will become obvious (OK, I have just found one. It allows me to drag this dialogue box I’m typing the text in to become bigger. I like that. I don’t think they even bothered to announce it). Its quite blue. I have just set it to be my default browser.
This looks a fairly obvious play in the anti-micr$oft get-apps-off-your-computer direction, by making a better browser. Its also bad news for firefox, which is regrettable.
