Google confirms the launch of new web browser
Internet-based giant Google has confirmed rumours that started going around the Internet, about the launch of a new web browser. In an announcement on the official Google blog, the company says : "As you may have read in the blogosphere, we hit "send" a bit early on a comic book introducing our new open source browser, Google Chrome. As we believe in access to information for everyone, we've now made the comic publicly available:

The "comic" is an -online brochure explaining how and why of a new browser.

Google says it will be launching the beta version of Google Chrome tomorrow in more than 100 countries and in 40 languages.

The company also say they are launching Google Chrome because they can add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web.

The developers claim they have designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple, since to most people, it isn't the browser that matters - it's only a tool to run applications and browse web pages.

Google Chrome beta is being released for for Windows, but the company is working on building versions for Mac and Linux operating systems.

This new browsers uses components from Apple's WebKit and Mozilla's Firefox, among others, and Google is making all of its code open source as well.
