Default Google Release Web Browser

So, Google has just released a web browser, named "Chrome". I say release - it's not the final version by any means. The download link is off line, though!

It's rumored to be up today, mind.

Keep Checking:

http://gears.google.com/chrome

It redirects you to google.com right now

DOWNLOAD URL: http://dl.google.com/update2/installers/ChromeSetup.exe

It REFUSES to open for me, and I had to look at the source code of the page(s) to even download the file...


EDIT #2

http://www.google.com/chrome WORKS

I read about Chrome last night... looks interesting.

Still redirects to google.com.

It'll have to work hard to grab my attention, (having recently made the move to FF3) but from what I've seen on various blogs about it, it looks like refining the browser experience, and I don't if that should be done, or if its a 'reinventing the wheel' scenario. We'll have to wait to see what Google can do with there billions.

That's very logical. I live GMT, do we know a more specific time at all?

True, but it wasn't terribly obvious. Nevertheless I suppose I must bow to your superiority.
