What is Chrome good for?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

OK, just downloaded and installed the new Google Chrome browser. It is a quite minimalistic approach and I really wonder what it is supposed to add to the web browsing experience. As of now there are no plug-ins available and other browsers are lightyears ahead of their new competitor when it comes to functionality. Face it: using Chrome right now is like going back to IE3 or so. But what else can be expected from Google? They always make big fanfare but in fact provide little. The same as in Google Earth.
