Chromed

I arrived late last night to the news that Google has entered the browser wars.  First impressions for me – something needs to be done about the slowdown/freezing that js-heavy webapps such as gmail create on IE and Firefox.  Having multiple flash based sites open causes similar non-responsive issues.  Chrome’s js engine, known as V8, responds favourably in benchmarks – although Firefox minions are countering this.

It would be nice if respective browser teams could fix these issues and quit with the endless ergonomic tabbed browsing memes.  No one cares where you put them…

 I’ll not be changing from Firefox (2!) anytime soon though.  I’ve got too many plugins to drop – Chrome has no framework in place yet.  And besides, Chrome is very much beta
