To a lot of people what browser they use might not be a big issue. For me, it is :). I have been following the browser wars for a long time and have every possible browser installed on my laptop, and I upgrade to the latest versions asap. Call me crazy, but I think the future of computing will be back in the "cloud", what we call the Internet and therefore Browsers will play a bigger role than operating systems.
Therefore, the moment I got wind of the news that Chrome, a new browser from Google, was being released I jumped up in joy. Well, not exactly. Ideally, i would have wanted Google to take Firefox as it is and fork it to develop a much better browser. What they did was to take the best of firefox and re-engineer a browser from scratch. The resulting Chrome is definitely a right step towards exploiting the future cloud, but is still a long way to go. The good thing is that Google announced that it woudl continue to support Firefox for another three years, and , together Chrome and Firefox are sure to bring down IE and with it MS.
The best feature is the multi-processing capability of Chrome. The browser treats tabs as different processes and therefore does not slow down as you open more tabs. Moreover, if a particular process in a tab crashes, the browser itself doe snot crash - a gift, given the instability in many java based applications.
