The Google Chrome Comic

Google continues to impress me. Not just with their web applications but with their documentation as well.

I recently read about the development history and philosophy behind Google's new web browser, Chrome. But it wasn't any sleep-inducing white paper filled with techno-speak (my apologies to those who love reading white papers). It was a 37-page graphic novel by comic book artist Scott McCloud (his 1993 book, "Understanding Comics" is a great analysis of the medium). Scott's clean, demonstrative style allowed me to understand complex concepts (such as multi-process architecture) and helped me appreciate all the hard work that goes into developing an application.

I can't wait for "Chrome" the movie.

it's funny, the more i use Chrome (for windows), the more unstable it seems to get... crashes a lot more, can't handle sites with flash, hangs every time i close a tab... all that to say, i'm switching back to Firefox

In a way, I agree with Movie Fan.

I love the Chrome interface, and really don't mind the loss of some of functionality and extensions in Firefox. However, I have noticed plenty of bugs- enough to keep me using Firefox for the most part. I'm especially surprised at the number of bugs I've encountered using Google apps- you'd think they'd have made sure those work in Chrome!

Hey! I was commenting on the comic, not the web browser!
