Google’s reason to launch a new web browser is their believe that they can add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web.
Google is releasing a beta of Chrome for Windows today and is at work building versions for Mac and Linux.

The announcement of Google Chrome will increase yet again the amount of testing for web developers and web design agencies. Albeit Google Chrome is based on existing open source components it will behave for sure differently again for rendering and executing JavaScript.No word yet on any support for Newsgroups like Firefox add-ons and IE extensions allow.
