  Here’s the Google Chrome Browser Comic Book: Hey Microsoft, Kaa-POW!!!
Time: 00:22 EST/05:22 GMT | News Source: *Linked Within Post* | Posted By: Kenneth van Surksum

Kara Swisher: Here is Google’s entire comic book–BoomTown’s not going to say the search giant is juvenile, but a comic book?–that it is using to explain the technical details of its new browser called Chrome.

Sources told me definitively that Google will launch the browser–which is its most blatant attack on Microsoft yet–as early as tomorrow for download by consumers.

Note: Also Paul Thurrott has some info on Google's Chrome Browser

While all of us tech types have been in a lather regarding the "threat" of Google, the financial markets months back began looking at Google as the advertising company that it is. The consequence of a slower economy is that its share price has plunged.

All of the above is to say, Google needs to figure out how to garner more advertising revenue and stop trying to be a Microsoft. The track record for companies that have gone down that road has been dismal at best. Google has yet to prove any different.

By the way, Microsoft's recent effort with IE 8 Beta 2 is darn good.

Google is, or would like to be, much more tham an "advertising company". Personally I am surprised that it took them so long to come out with a browser and I wonder how long it will take to them and IBM to offer an OS.
As far as for your comment about Google shares that "plunged" it seems to me that if Sparta (Google) cryes, Athens (MS) does not laugh either. Considering that I have MS shares, this stagnation is really annoying.
As for IE 8 I really like it a lot; hopefully with the mounting competition MS will keep updating IE at a fast pace.

IE8B2--quite a huge improvement over B1. Very, very fast.

I just installed Chrome in a test box, I do not care for Google products so I did not want to contaminate my main desktop, and I have to say that is fast but really fast.
Again I am not a Google fan but I have to admit that I am really impressed.
Well,we will all beneit from the browser competition.

I really have to agree with Fritzly - this is a really fast browser.

No Ad blocking.
No Script blocking.

Looks like trouble without those.

Uninstalling it (yes, that is part of testing, too) leaves the ubiquitous Googleupdate.exe is user apps data local (yummy). Hidden of course and starts up and has to be removed via MSCONFIG or some other utility (CCleaner/other).

Hopefully you reported that lketchum, as it is a beta.

#9 By lketchum (3301 Posts) at 9/3/2008 8:32:09 AM
#8, Yes, of course. BTW... Googleupdate.exe will punish you with =>90% CPU utilization until you kill it manually and remove it from your system. Similarly, Google leaves 35 MB of apps data (including preferences) in hidden apps data in the user folder (weird). You'll need to create another user, reboot and log as that user in order to delete the folder and sub-dirs it leaves behind.

Nasty, nasty, nasty.

I've long thought Google's interpretation of "evil" was very different from my own.

#10 By Fritzly (1341 Posts) at 9/3/2008 1:32:51 PM
I have never seen a program that, once uninstalled, does not leave any kind of garbage on the HD.
Besides what I am really concern is Google EULA; granted other companies, Apple n MS included, EULAs are so biased and full of vessatory terms that I do not think could hold a challenge in Court; well it should not... but the Google one appears to be very pernicious.
The idea that whatever I publish using their browser becomes something Google can utilize in whatever way seems ludicrous but it is there black on white.

There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you created certain nice points in features also.
