What's wrong with this Google ad?!!
Originally uploaded by pbeens.I saw this ad this morning while surfing the net on my iPod Touch. Sorry for the poor quality, but the only way I could think of grabbing the screenshot really fast was with my camera.Click on the photo to see it on flickr.

Google Chrome Is Out!

It's amazing what Google keeps doing. A multi-threaded web browser, with each tab running as its own process makes so much sense.

Download it at www.google.com/chrome.

Initial Comments:

- fast! 
- no integration with Roboform, my password manager (bad) (Firefox's bookmarklets seem to work)
- integrates with Google Documents for offline editing (nice)
- no delicious integration yet (coming soon, I bet)
- no ad blocker (very bad) - interesting home page - shows thumbnails of your popular pages. Opened by clicking the New Tab icon (intuitive I suppose, although I keep looking for a Home button). Update: You can enable the home button in options. It's disabled by default - there is no master password for saved passwords (dumb)
Update: It's now 48 hours later and Chrome has already taken 1% of the browser share, which is more than Opera has gained in its entire life! Amazing!
