Google announced via a comic book press release they will launch a new browser engine called Google Chrome. (See the comic here)

"On the surface, we designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple. To most people, it isn't the browser that matters. It's only a tool to run the important stuff -- the pages, sites and applications that make up the web. Like the classic Google homepage, Google Chrome is clean and fast. It gets out of your way and gets you where you want to go."

This means one web page won't interfer with the entire browser session. Instead of closing the browser, you'll simply have to close one tab associated with the troubled website. Google Chrome also intends to improve speed and responsiveness, as well as "a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, to power the next generation of web applications that aren't even possible in today's browsers."

We will be taking a look at Google Chrome as soon as possible and add it to our list of testing platforms to ensure all websites we build function properly in this browser.
