Google has a new browser. It should be the best browser for Windows machines hands down, and once they get it ready for Macs, it’ll own Macs, too. I’d suggest giving it a go if you’re on a Windows machine — it should start faster and stay faster during the long work day.
But most importantly, Friend Google volunteered you to try it. Friend Google assures us that trying Chrome will be productive, and completely safe!.

In all seriousness, Chrome should be pretty much six stacks of awesome in a four-stack bag. There’s a comic book that describes in easy-to-understand way what the new technologies and ground-up reconcepting is doing in Google’s new open-source browser. This may not seem cool on the surface, but it is like saying after 10 years of widespread public internet use, somebody is finally trying to build a square peg for the square hole — current browsers were all never designed to do the level of heavy lifting that web developers want them to nowadays, and if you dick around on the internet all day . . . and I know you do . . . you should be using the best tool for the job.
Which in this case is free and 100% open-source.
