So the first ad was weird enough but then yesterday I saw the second ad of the series and I must say, it was confusing one. What do you guys think?



Google Chrome

The buzz on the web is all about the new Google browser — Google Chrome. So naturally, as web developers we had to give it a try and see how fast it really is. And you know what? its lightenning fast. Not a surprise given that it is powered by WebKit!There are few other things that are very exciting about Google Chrome but then there are also few things that we didn’t like. Things we didn’t like:1. The name. I mean what the heck were they thinking!?2. The completely minimized theme. While it is great from my perspective, I think the general public would’ve liked it better if they could find it familiar to use. From UI prespective, it is very important to bring the familiarity factor in for the user. They should be able to look at it and identify it as a browser something that looks like IE but works better.  So have you given it a run yet? What do you think?
