What crapware gets installed with it??

knowing Google and its Toolbar/desktop search crapware i'd be very surprised if there is none.

A new process thread per tab has the advantage of not closing the whole browser if problems are encountered I suppose but from first impressions of other people I can't see myself rushing to install this.

i dont see any similarities between the two screenshots you posted aside from there being a yellow star in both thats is
well the way it works by having everything under different processes is innovative IMO and could be the solotuion to a lot of problems that a lot of users experience
i will admit the ui isn't wonderful but then again on another hand it is simplistic which i can really see working for some people
and this is only their first releaseand its understandable everything is not 100% perfect , just like not everything was right after firefox's first release

i think you just need to stop being such a Firefox fanboy to realise this signifys something more than just Google trying to get in on the browser war

You can't really call having a bookmark feature a copy of other browsers. With your logic, Firefox stole the bookmark system from IE.

I thought they stole it from netscape. but anyway every browser has a bookmark feature but I have to admit the way bookmarking is in chrome is strikingly similar to that of firefox 3

There are things under the hood that are great. Take V8. That makes Javascript a good deal faster. There are other things, but I am too lazy to look them up. I have a bad memory. I also think the simplicity of it is pretty cool.

Keep in mind, this is built from scratch. Firefox and other browsers were all based off Mozilla.
