Browser Wars: A Disturbance in The Force

So Google has released Chrome, its entry in the browser wars (bonus points, Google, for promoting it with a Scott McCloud comic).

I know, I know, it uses the same rendering engine as Safari… but even still, Murphy’s Law of Browsers dictates that weird little quirks and idiosyncrasies will somehow find their way in. And in a world where we have to test web pages against Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Konqueror, old versions of Netscape, various mobile browsers and that web-enabled toaster oven in your client’s office kitchen, well… oy.

That said, am I itching to install it the moment the first suicidally-alpha version is available for the Mac? You betcha.
