Oh, There’s No Place Like Chrome for the Holidays



Don’t look at me like that, who doesn’t like the The Carpenters? ;-)

OK, so the news.

Google has, finally, released Google Chrome for the Mac. As Google admits, "it took longer than we expected" but it appears to have been worth the wait. The beta browser is blazingly fast, and packed with all the cool features of Chrome–and a few extra that are Mac-flavored.

The video below provides a quick overview for Mac users:

In addition, Google has launched a gallery of more than 300 Google Chrome extensions (plugins), which despite the above announcement, are not available on the Mac version. :-(

Lastly, though not Chrome-related, Google has announced updates to its Offline Gmail project–removing it from Labs and throwing in a few extra functions. Perfect for when you go "over the hill to Grandma’s house"–who likely doesn’t have internet access. ;-)

    Wow – No Place Like Chrome, huh? I think you need to have a singing headline so you could show off the golden pipes as that e*trade baby says.

    As for Chrome the thing is super fast for the Mac but without the extensions it’s kinda eh.
