Just for kicks, I've decided to try out Google's Chrome browser... months after the rest of the world tried and made their decisions. Here are my random first impressions after a few hours of use.

* It is indeed zippy
* It's not gonna set the world on fire
* Very solid browser
* Undecided on whether I like the look-and-feel or not
* Like the built in developer tools

Overall... it's a browser. I have to say that Google's managed an achievement here just by managing to make the thing inoffensive. Rendering HTML is a nasty and complicated business, and getting that right is non-trivial. Other than that... it's a browser. A little different from the others. The only real standout feature, for me, is the "New Tab" page. It provides ready access to a number of useful links relating to your browsing history and it's a feature I hope to see Mozilla emulate. That said, I don't think I'm likely to switch off Mozilla as my web development tool of choice.
