I read the comic, liked the idea. Downloading and installing was painless, and it looks good when it starts.
<edit> (03/09/2008) – Of course, having now tried it on several other PCs, and rebooted the one I originally tested it on, I can say that most of the problems I came across earlier were actually rubbish. It plays flash just fine, google maps is quick and smooth. </edit>
On the plus side, it does work well on most sites. Wikipedia is really quick, it passes the Acid2 test, more than you can say for IE, and does quite well on Acid3 (compared to many others). That’s probably down to Webkit more than Google though. The Chrome-specific task manager is useful when you find a site that crashes it, too – it just crashes a single tab rather than the whole browser.
Anyway, checkitout: http://www.google.com/chrome
