Google Chrome - More than just "yet another browser"?

Let's hope so...

Google is coming up with its browser "Google Chrome". There is a nice series of cartoons explaining the thought behind some of the features.

If Google is able to deliver a browser secure enough and powerful enough at the same time, it would become a compelling tool for application development. It may take quite some time for it to catch up though, since Mozilla and IE are well entrenched in the open source and the corporate world respectively. Some Mozilla users may migrate to Chrome and we will have yet another browser to worry about compatibility. Unless of course we move all of our stuff to GWT and let Google take care of that too. :)

One of the features to look out for is the Javascript engine and multi-threading improvements. It would definitely make things faster in the web browser. I'll be looking forward for the beta...
