Google Chrome beta released!

Writing about web page http://www.google.com/chrome

I overheard the eLab guys chatting about this earlier today but didn't expect a beta to follow so swiftly after the (unintentionally early) release of the comic press release. There is a Windows version available now with a Macintosh version to follow a little later on down the line.

First impressions are hugely positive. Memory footprint seems modest compared to Firefox (despite all the optimisations in FF3), and the rendering engine seems very very fast on most sites. The UI is predictably uncluttered but surprisingly pretty, especially on Windows Vista where it makes full use of the Aero 'glass' effects. 

So far I love it and will probably be using it a hell of a lot more...
