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.

The community add-ons alone.. unless there's compatibility of Firefox add-ons with Chrome or a max exodus from Firefox plug-in development (which I highly doubt) then this does seem to me to be more name and not so much show, much like Safari.


Well, Safari is much just another browser. Chrome, if it maintains its promises, seems another thing. The concept of running tabs as separate jailed processes and to speed up Javascript are really interesting.

I agree that some compatibility with Firefox plugins should be put in place. It would be a tremendous feature.

Any information on the license Google wants to apply? It won't be GPL, probably, but what else?
