Google Launches New Browser – Chrome

Google recently announced the launch of their new browser.  I downloaded it as soon as it was availible.  I have been very impressed with it.  I figure if I am running GMail, Reader, and Analytics in a browser I might as well do it in a browser designed by Google.  Good to see some more innovations in the browser space.  The JavaScript engine that it is using (V8) was designed for speed.  I don’t know if it is the fastest out there as I have seen some speed tests where it did beat Firefox, but in some others it did not.  With more and more sites using JavaScript and Ajax to improve the user experience and make online applications more like desktop ones hopefully Google as a player will help push along the development of JavaScript Engines. In term allowing even more interactive sites.
