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 Googles new web browser, Chrome. But it wasnt 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). Scotts 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 cant wait for Chrome the movie.
