    The day has almost come - just waiting for it to be actually downloadable. It is to be open source. Discuss.

    I really like the features of it all (Especially the sad tab thing, I hate firefox crashing all of my tabs just because of a youtube video), but I just wonder if they will be able to implement it all. :s, I'll love google if they can come out with this .

    I'm using it the second it comes out.

    The idea of each tab acting like it's own process is great.

    They implemented lots of good ideas from other browsers (firefox, opera, IE8 ) and added some of theirselfs.

    And it uses Webkit!

    And is Open Source!

    And will have superiour Javascript capabilities than any other browser!

    I smell awesomeness.

    ps: It was a smart move of them to use comics to explain it. Just a plain text article with some pictures would be boring.

    looks interesting, though its bound to have issues by using webkit without some sort of browser agent.
    I hope its expansible like firefox.

    Since I posted I've been reading the comic book and I have to say this is going to be truely awesome.

    I notice it doesn't say anything about operating systems - but I seriously doubt Google would build something that doesn't run on all three of Windows, Mac and Linux. It may especially benefit us on Linux, with the sad state of crashing flash.
