chrome-logoFeeling left out of the Google Chrome party? I know I am. It’s been out for some time now, but because Google left Mac and Linux users out in the cold, I still haven’t given it a try.

While Firefox is my browser of choice, Chrome sounds like much more than a simple browser. It is a step towards a web-based operating system. For example, each tab is an isolated process, so that if one web site/webapp crashes, the browser remains functional (kind of like your actual OS, where if Word crashes, you can keep using Outlook).

Look for it in the “first half” of 2009.
