The web is atwitter with the release of Chrome from Google. The biggest thing out of all the hype is that it is one of the first technology release complemented by a comic documentation, that I have seen in a while. There is also the standard docs and Youtube video.
I downloaded the browser and played with it, but I am not going to volunteer my Firefox data (Chrome can import data - not just bookmarks etc. but also my saved password data etc.) to Google, yet. I am worried that Google that already knows about my web clicks, might also know more about my web behavior with access to what I see and view/ignore. I will wait for the community atlarge to shake it out before adopting it for my day2day use.
Privacy concerns aside, the technology innovation chrome brings to the table, seems to fuel competitive work in other browsers as well - a good kick in the pants.
In the end I am reminded that good CS students make the best/usable software.
