(UPDATE! I’m conducting a poll about Chrome–please go here to take it, and to get a recap of all of Technologizer’s Chrome coverage.)
I may have a lot of questions about Chrome, Google’s browser, but this I know already: Hiring the wonderful cartoonist Scott McCloud to draw a comic book explaining it all was an inspired idea. However, the comic as posted at Google Blogoscoped runs to 38 fairly dense pages, with lots of detail aimed at developers. And that site is having trouble keeping up with the interest–the pages were unavailable a few minutes ago.
So here (after the jump) as a public service is a condensed version of the comic. I’ve tried to keep most of the facts that are of interest to us folks who just use browsers rather than develop for them, and have therefore eliminated about 75 percent of the comic. What’s left is still very, very interesting, and Google is now confirming that the Windows version of Chrome will be available for test driving tomorrow…
