Well the rest of the blogging world covered this within 2 seconds of it being accidentally announced by Google. Personally I wanted time to think about and read the speculation about this exciting news.
If you’ve not yet read Google’s blog post announcing their own Web Browser, click here. Now, I’ve read that many people are not liking this. Sure there’s umpteen browsers out there, do we need another one? Yes, actually we do.
The Google browser is not about Google getting into bigger markets. Its not about power, money or popularity. Its about filling a void which currently no other company has even looked at, let alone attempted to fill.
This is a browser for cloud computing. Like it or lump it, cloud computing exists, sure its a fancy term for something thats always been around, but thats just how it works.
I’ll post a follow up review once the browser gets released later today. (I’ll be trying to get it running under WINE or Crossover on OS X first )
