Good Google Chrome articles / posts

Google Chrome has, as expected, generated a lot of interest in quite a short period.

I'm sharing some of the interesting ones I've come across so far:

Comment Of The Day: Chrome, Android, and the Cloud on Fred Wilson's blog - A VC.

Chrome, Android, and The Cloud, also on Fred's blog.

The Chrome Comic Book, where the first news about Chrome was released by Google, apparently a little too early, by mistake. Though it actually is a comic book, it seems that it's one of the good place to learn more about Chrome's features and the reasons why Google created Chrome.

Download link for Chrome - it's live now.

Inside Chrome - very interesting article on with some of the background about the Chrome project, going back to the start of it. The article is by Steven Levy, who wrote the book "Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution" - a very interesting read about the original computer programming pioneers over the first few decades of computers. He also wrote some other books including "Insanely Great: The Life and Times of Macintosh, the Computer That Changed Everything".

Google V8 JavaScript Engine, which is used in Chrome. Supposed to be one of the reasons for Chrome's claimed much higher performance that previous browsers. It's still early days for independent reports, but some of the reports indicate that it is at least a good amount faster. Google identified Danish computer scientist Lars Bak, an expert on virtual machine development, to develop the V8 JavaScript engine.

A review of Chrome by Scott Berkun, who was at Microsoft and worked on Internet Explorer versions 1 through 5, and currently uses Firefox 3.

The cloud's Chrome lining, a post by Nicholas Carr. He gives his views about some of the real reasons why Google is developing Chrome. Seems to make sense ...

Finally, here is a Google Blogoscoped review of Chrome.

Blogoscoped was where a lot of people first heard about Chrome.
