There's a new sheriff in town...

Google has announced yesterday that it will be releasing a new web browser... Google Chrome...

What does this mean for the Web Browser industry? More competition... And from a Giant like Google, it's sure to be very interesting!

So what can a new browser do for us? well for the user, it means a cleaner interface with some feature and performance boosts.... for us developers, it means real sandboxing, true garbage collection, significant JavaScript performance boosts including compiled code before it runs, better security, and even the ability to run in a browser window that is stripped of all things "browser" allowing our "Browser Apps" to feel more like "Apps" and less like "browser".

I gladly welcome this new arrival and look forward to the innovation that Google will bring to the market!

Here's a link to their blog post:
