Google has the world abuzz again today with the announcement of their latest project, Chrome. Chrome is Google’s answer to the browser battle. Why create a new browser? Simple, if you’re entire business model is based upon the future of the browser being the single interface for all computing applications (desktop or mobile), you probably want to have some say in how the interface is designed and operates.
Chrome is developed based upon an open source set of development tools, also released by Google, called WebKit. It is a tab based environment that is Google says will improve the user experience with more stability and security. Chrome also takes advantage of another Google development standard called “Gears“.
A couple of sites have stated that Chrome will be avaialble for download as early as tomorrow. To find out more, Google has released a 38 page “web comic” explaining Chrome.
