Google's shiny new browser is almost here: Google Chrome based on WebKit.
Surely will feature gears and other google mumbo-jumbo (some say it will even have a privacy feature ala IE8 aka the "porn mode"). I imagine it will be neat and fast but very unpolished - as the other google products launched in the "launch early and iterate" spirit. Speaking of, meh, app engine it's still just a Toy.
I still put my money on the Shiretoko. (I hope I'm wrong tough)
