Google Chrome Comic book (Google)
There was plenty of talk about the missing Google Toolbar, and it is more than a little surprising that they didn't write one as part of the Chrome development process. There is also no current support for third-party plug-ins, but if developers write to the Chrome specifications, it could make for a far more secure environment. The latest addition to the open source community is a massive shot across the bow of various rivals and could open the door to desktop virtualization from Google.

I was thrilled to hear about Google's new Chrome browser; I have long been a fan of the things that they are doing in the cloud. My experience today was marred only by the lack of a Google Toolbar to fully Chrome out my surfing experience. However, I did find a work-around while I was playing with Firefox and Chrome side by side. You can drag tabs from Firefox to Chrome, so I am using Firefox for the toolbar and Chrome for the surfing. I have thought that the next area of research and development should be desktop virtualization for quite some time, and this project could be a positive step in that direction. Only good things could come out of Google competing with Microsoft in the desktop space. What do you think about Google's latest move?
