Chrome is quite good

Highly scientific tests show Google Chrome to be a bit faster than Firefox and a lot faster than Internet Explorer.

Code mostly from WebKit and Mozilla, but hey…

Eventually I guess Chrome will be built in to ‘instant-on’ operating systems like Splashtop.

Maximised it looks like a desktop, with the blue colouring and tabs-on-top, like Google are expecting us to live there full time. Chrome gives Google a lot more scope to develop web applications and sooner or later I guess they’ll release a Chrome-only application. Assuming Google’s plan for world domination works out, Chrome will then become like a ‘runtime environment’.

Then in five years someone will have the bright idea of standalone applications that don’t need to run in a browser!

…and I love the euphemistically named ‘incognito mode’, presumably aimed at undercover freedom fighters. They’re all at it: IE8 has InPrivate, Safari has Private Browsing, Firefox has some other thing…
