Online editor Kurt Cagle said in a meeting a few minutes ago, "Like everyone else on the west coast, I've been distracted by Google Chrome." We're looking into the project (and wondering why we didn't get wind of it much earlier.) I'm particularly interested in the V8 virtual machine. Plenty of people are happy or upset or confused about the Big G providing client-side software directly to end-users again, especially in the ever-fragmenting browser market.
I'm sure there's plenty of analysis to come. More interesting to me right now is the question "How is the browser?" I've read nothing better than the user point of view opinions of my colleague Scott Berkun, who worked on IE at Microsoft for several years. Google's web browser (Chrome): early review is initially positive, but the real question is how it works over weeks and months.
