Google’s new browser, Chrome scheduled for release today

Jerry Lees Jerry Lees Profile: Jerry Lees

Well, the blogosphere is currently in a frenzied state about the new Google Chrome browser– and there still isn’t a download page for it. It’s gotten to such a point that even searching Google won’t bring up a link for the browser from google itself– which is actually kind of funny if you think about it.

I’ll be posting information to this article as it becomes available throughout the day, so check back often or bookmark the page to get the latest information on thenew Google Chrome Browser.

 It appears that for a time there was a download page, tons of sites link to it but the page simply redirects you to the google home page at this time. I’ve seen some speculation that the response was overwhelming Google’s servers… I doubt that seriously. I’m betting it is simply sheer marketing, generate a frenzy and release it later. The official google blog has a posting yesterday claiming the release to the public was an accident… oops.

 At any rate, while the browser isn’t available to download yet, I did manage to find some Chrome screenshots that were not hosted on google’s site– and are still available to view over at pcworld.

There’s more to come as information becomes available. For now, the best information I’ve seen is that the download is supposed to be available at 2pm EST and will be available at the  Google Chrome Page. but while you wait, you can read the comic they put out that supposedly explains how it works.
