Google Chrome is great!

Today, Google released their own open source web browser, Chrome. The Javascript rendering engine, v8, that Google uses for Chrome is super fast. The browser was built for speed, security, and the future.  Each separate tab runs in its own sandbox, so if a single tab crashes, it and only it will crash.  It is built from existing open source components including Web Kit and v8. This means that you need not learn how to make hacks sites for Chrome, because if your site already works in Safari, it will work in Chrome.

Oh, and the logo for the project ( Chromium) Looks like a Poke’ Ball!
