Google Chrome's beta release
"So why are we launching Google Chrome?" asked Google's then-VP of product management Sundar Pichai, "Because we believe we can add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web."

Chrome's design was new, innovative, and it fixed many problems associated with other web browsers. If you are curious about Google's vision for Chrome and all of the changes it would bring, read the comic book the company produced to commemorate the event.
