I just downloaded the new Google open-source browser, Chrome. It’s currently available for Windows only (it’s a free download); a Mac version is in development. While it’s a beta product, I haven’t crashed once since downloading it and it recognizes most common plug-ins out of the gate. Configurations are pretty bare bones (it’s kind of nice not to have to deal with tons of options); actually it’s a very bare bones looking browser (see image below). Google has created a comic book that talks about the technology behind the browser.
