Google's Chrome needs polishing but is off to a good start
September 2, 2008

In case you haven't already heard, Google released Chrome today—its new browser built based on how the web is used today compared to several years ago.

Sure, there are the usual players like the Adobe/Macromedia products but what I enjoy the most are the small free programs that someone made in their free time and decided to release to the world in case anyone else might need them. These sometimes require some hunting down to find and can be well worth it.
