What does Chrome bring to the table?

Compiled JS? Apple did that before Chrome.

SquirrelFish Extreme's and Chrome's release are only a few months apart so we can safely assume that Google has been working on this feature independently of Apple and WebKit. In this respective case it's probably inappropriate to claim that one company has been more innovative than the other, since obviously both companies saw the need for such an solution (same goes for Microsoft and process separation). There have been also earlier plans to include a JIT-compiling engine with Mozilla's Tamarin project (which never really took of but some of the technology has been used for TraceMonkey).
