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.

Member since:

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.

Most German newspapers already have articles about the new Google browsers on their webpages, for example Sueddeutsche, Der Spiegel and FAZ. They are not aimed at computer science persons or geeks. A lot of people will hear about Chrome and since so many people already use Google, a lot of people will try out Chrome. I think Chrome will be a serious contender in the browser market and I think more competition is always a good thing.
