why google created chrome
Just found this post on why Google created Chrome [via end6‘s twitter].
I love this section (a Q&A with the author’s friend Dave):
“What Google does not want is Microsoft creating a browser that sucks. Actually, Google doesn’t mind if Microsoft’s browser sucks. What they really don’t want is Microsoft to make a browser that sucks and everyone ends up using it. And, if the IE8 beta shows us anything, making a really sucky web browser is Microsoft’s true ambition.
I hate the exhortation to “read the rest” but I also don’t want to quote paragraph after paragraph of an article that honestly, I’ve only skimmed. But there’s some interesting other points the author makes regarding Google’s motives. So if you’re interested. Bounce over there.
