New Web Browser From Google! Goodbye IE!?

According to Official Google Blog:

At Google, we have a saying: “launch early and iterate.” While this approach is usually limited to our engineers, it apparently applies to our mailroom as well! As you may have read in the blogosphere, we hit "send" a bit early on a comic book introducing our new open source browser, Google Chrome.

As we believe in access to information for everyone, we've now made the comic publicly available -- you can find it
here. We will be launching the beta version of Google Chrome tomorrow in more than 100 countries.

....This is just the beginning -- Google Chrome is far from done. We're releasing this beta for Windows to start the broader discussion and hear from you as quickly as possible. We're hard at work building versions for Mac and Linux too, and will continue to make it even faster and more robust.

- World rejoice to the latest offering from our favorite search engine!! An internet web browser! This will definitely be the latest hurdle that Google need to clear for developing useful web software such as Google lively that encountered several errors using different browsers and operating system.

However, web programmers like me and my colleagues are dreading the prospect of requirement to support yet another web browser. Old websites programmed using old programming languages might not look the same or may not even function properly....

but obviously Google have the resource to actually fix the problems given their almost unlimited budget unlike the "other" browser.

Update: After viewing a comic from Google explaining more about the new Google Chrome web browser, I am extremely pleased that Google had include "Gears" that allow developers be able to develop web application that can be cross-platform to other browsers as well.

This means less headache supporting websites designed on Google Chrome and it's a full open sourced web browser makes it easier for other browsers to implement similar ideas.

Lets hope that Google can deliver yet another powerful software that can empower everyone that uses the internet!

I am seriously excited with the new browsers no doubt there might be bugs on the initial release but I seriously believe it will be resolved very quickly.
