Google Chrome (‘n’Comics)
At home I mostly use a Mac, so (besides my undying allegiance to Firefox) I can’t actually play with Chrome. Until Google releases a Mac version. Cough cough coughity cough Google. (Oh, and also a Linux one please, k thx).
But what I can do is read their launch materials, which are presented in… wait for it… comic book form! Not just a comic book, but a Creative Commons licensed comic book put together by Scott McCloud, of Understanding Comics fame.
Ultimately I’m concerned about what this means for Firefox, since they receive a whole lot of their funding from Google – who pay for their search engine to be tied into the browser. Chrome’s release makes me worry that Firefox are now in danger of becoming an unnecessary line-item. But I am hoping that the little fox and the shiny hunk of metal will live happily ever after (together).
I don’t know if that story will come true, but you can read the Chrome story here.
