Opinion: Who cares about Google Chrome?
Google’s new browser “Chrome” got a lot of press last week. The technology presstitutes were falling all over themselves, drooling and blabbing on and on about how great Google’s browser is and how it was a missile aimed at Microsoft, etc., etc. Well I’m not very excited about it all for a number of reasons and it’s clear that Google has screwed up royally in some ways with this browser.
Note that I’m not going to review Chrome here or even delve into its feature set. For that you can check out ET editor Jason Cross’ excellent column or PCMag’s review of the Chrome beta. For my part I’m interested in whether or not Chrome should even have been made in the first place and that’s what I’ll cover in this column.
