    Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be invading your privacy somehow.

    considering they just made a deal with firefox for 3 years, chances are it'll use a lot of FF code.

    the deal was for the search component, a lucrative deal for both parties. Doesn't really relate to who's code is in the browser.

    GPhone is a better name.

    I really wish Google goes into making an OS to compete with Windows.

    I want an alternative to Windows, and I think now is the time where a company could knock them down. :x:

    i think if a large scale company put a giant effort towards it, they would get the majority of ebayers to switch.
    Ebay is suffering under their own monopoly and nickle and diming their customers to death.

    one for the browser, one for the tabs handler, one for the specific tab you're using, and maybe one for a plugin? right-click at the top, to the right of the new tab button, and view the Task Manager

    Ah, gotcha. Very interesting... kind of seems like a large amount of RAM for a browser, but I'm sure in a week they'll sort a lot of kinks out.
