Is Google Chrome available yet? If so, where can I download it from? Any thoughts yet?

It's based off Apple's Webkit rendering engine, so I'd assume so!

From the article.

We're hard at work building versions for Mac and Linux too, and will continue to make it even faster and more robust.

The beta will most probably only be Windows however.

One of the most impressive technical innovations that Google has brought to Chrome is a multiprocess design. Each individual browser tab runs within its own isolated process, much like the way that processes work in an operating system. This will massively increase the robustness of the browser by insulating the application from bugs that cause crashes within individual tabs. The tab will go down, but the rest of the browser will remain unaffected. The multiprocess design also reduces the impact of memory fragmentation by ensuring that the memory used by a tab can be reclaimed completely when the tab is closed.

Another unique advantage of the multiprocess design is that it will allow users to see the distribution of memory between the various tabs and plug-ins used by the browser. Users will be able to use Chrome's built-in process manager to see how much memory is being used by each individual tab so that they can properly identify the real culprit when the browser begins to hog resources. Google has a few other strategies for reducing memory consumption too, like extremely aggressive and heavily-optimized garbage collection.


I'm fucken sold.

lol won't be that bad, Google has a lot of nice utilities, and I'm sure a lot of them will be integrated or easily accessed by Chrome.

To hint they will be taking over Firefox? Homage?

ps, Bill Gates said 640K of memory is all anyone would need on their computer. So 8Gb = meh in a few years. :-P
