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.
