    I've been playing with it in VMWare, and it seems like a bit of a letdown. I had high expectations from a company, like google, that has been so innovative in the past. It's a lot like Google took features of Safari and Firefox and produced an aesthetically unappealing web browser with really nothing new to offer. :dunno:

    It runs incredibly fast on Windows Vista (as a host, not Virtual Machine) :dunno: JavaScript engine is much faster, and it shares the same rendering engine as Safari, WebKit.

    For a browser that hasn't even been out for more than 24 hours, it's pretty damn good.
