Google Chrome

Well, duh, Google made a browser: Chrome. Apparently, based on the same browser engine as Firefox although poking around I see striking similarities to Safari. (Correction: It’s based on the same Open Source engine as Safari but they give a lot of credit to Firefox)

It’s certainly fast, and if you use a lot of JavaScript intense pages … really fast. (Edit: They use their own Open Source JavaScript Virtual Machine written, called V8)

What I understand from reading the Introductory Comic (very cool!) is that the HTML renderer is borrowed but the platform itself is written from scratch.
