What's under the Shiny Chrome?

Google's launched their latest we're not trying to go after MSFT product called "Chrome". Here's their description of the product ..

Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier.
Now that I've installed and used the product a little bit, here are 3 things on the top of my mind.

  2. The current EULA will make it next to impossible for use in a compliant enterprise.
  3. Does this mean web coders will now have yet another fork in their code saying "If Chrome .. do this ... else".


Haha .. I find it ironic that when I accessed my Hotmail account from Chrome I got this message.

Not sure if its just a caching issue or what but it sure is ironic.

Greatest browser there is IMO. Fast and reliable the way computer software should be :)
