Looks interesting although I would be concerned about security and useability. If it's that light, what is it's built in security and how will the plugins work for it.

I'm starting to get the impression google are trying to find a "killer app" and are trying their hand at everything. I doubt this will be a killer app and I doubt this would replace firefox.

Edit: Hmm, just downloaded and giving it a try. I must say I'm impressed!
I am concerned about security but as for speed, very impressive!

Once the security flows are resolved, i will be happy to use it! But for now, some bugs are still there.

I see that we Macmen have to wait as the current version is Windows only so neither Gunner nor I will be able to use it on OSX until the Mac version (under preparation) is available. Being a sucker for punishment, I may try it out on one of my Windows Emulators.

Denis. Please. No. Let's talk. OK I've got stuff you might want. OK perhaps not. What about if I do a vid of silly walks and post it.

Yes and that's the joke. His biggest battle was "browser wars" and this is a new contender which the comic is saying "will bring him out of retirement".
