The Comic Book Introduces Google’s New Web Browser

Here’s a heads up from Altaf, one of our readers…

The tech world is buzzing today about Google Chrome, the new web browser coming out of Mountain View. If you’re wondering what it’s all about, you can read a comic book (produced by Google) that introduces the new initiative. (Windows users can download the browser here; Mac users, including yours truly, seem to be out of luck for now.) The experts, who have looked under the hood, are enthusiastic so far. Walt Mossberg, the tech reviewer for the Wall Street Journal, renders his verdict: “Chrome is a smart, innovative browser that, in many common scenarios, will make using the Web faster, easier and less frustrating. But this first version—which is just a beta, or test, release—is rough around the edges and lacks some common browser features Google plans to add later. These omissions include a way to manage bookmarks, a command for emailing links and pages directly from the browser, and even a progress bar to show how much of a Web page has loaded.” You can read the full review here. Now, let the browser wars begin again.
