Google The browser wars may just become a little bit more interesting. Apart from Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, and Safari, another player is ready to join the field in what will most probably be released as a beta - you know, company policy - for the upcoming 23 years: Chrome. It's a webkit-based browser from Google. Update: It's out there, folks.

Are you sure about that? I don't know a single person who would admit to using more than one browser except in the (extremely rare now) cases that a site is 'IE' only, for example.

Plus I'm still not sure that the general public know the difference between IE and Firefox and how it affects their browsing experience and also the general 'ethics' of the situation (standards compliance, for example). I can't help thinking a lot just use it because their resident geek told them it was safer.

But I certainly agree about it eating Microsoft's market share rather than Mozilla's or Opera's. It's amazing how many people are lost without Adblock these days.
