Google Chrome just launched today and man does it kick ass. I won't get into all the multi threading and sandboxed details but it is way more advanced and secure than anything else out there. So far it's Windows only though but they will have other versions soon.

Oh and it's fast as hell.

No problem. The more I use this thing the more impressed I am with it. It is very minimalistic but it seems very polished. It's also got a built in spell checker that check anywhere you type. Handy for a guy like me.

I like Firefox's or Ice Weasel's spell check. Had it for a long time.

Looks interesting. I just downloaded it and will give it a shot. I didn't think I needed a new browser, as FF pretty much does what I need (at least with the add ons available), but some of the features in the video look nice. If it's fast, that's great. I wonder how it renders the sites I visit... also, I wonder if they'll ever make something like adblock plus available for it.

It handles pop ups really well. I wouldn't have even brought this browser up but it really is something all of it's own. Under the hood it really is like no other browser.
