disclaimer: as with everyone else’s post this post does not add a dime to what has already been said by the right people (Google staff). Instead it will focus on the unanswered questions.
What is the need for yet another browser ? It’s an open source browser, there are already several good open source browsers such as Firefox.
Great, it has several new features, but why weren’t they included to existing open-source projects ?
Google was a strong supporter of Mozilla Firefox, what happens now ?
If the browser is open source, where is the code?
EDIT: Antonio gave the right answer http://code.google.com/chromium/
PS: I’ve not installed Google Chrome, and do not really intend to in the near future. Not because I don’t want to, just because I don’t use windows :)
