Say “Hi” to Google Chrome

A few weeks ago, Google took the wraps off of a new web browser called “Chrome“.  The browser enters into competition against a handful of entrenched foes, mostly notably Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.  I took Google Chrome for a spin over the past few days and like what I see.  The user interface is simpler than either IE or Firefox, and it appears to be  the fastest of the three browsers as well.

Chrome is supposedly optimized to run web applications such as those provided by Google.   Some even say it will eventually replace Windows as fewer applications are installed on computers and more of them hosted online.

What do you think?  Is this a possibility?
