This is another of Google's strategy to swallow up enemies thru the back door. It's a win-win situation for them. If it works, Google will look like a hero. If they fail, pass on the blame to Microsoft.

Consumers ends up the real loser.

I think I'll stick with the hardware accelerated cutting edge Firefox 4 beta for a while. I've always been a bit leery of Chrome, because of the speed with which it gets pushed out, and the fact that some amount of your data is getting sent to Google, who have a vested interest in knowing your browsing habits. Internet explorer has gotten miles better, but there's no compelling reason to switch back for me at the moment.

 

I can understand Microsoft's fear: when this thing gets attacked, it'll look like their fault, when it may be Google's.

Chrome is a generation ahead of IE8 and IE9 won't be available for XP. This will push many XP users to start using the latest versions of Chrome or FF.

Once XP users do make the jump to windows 7 they will want to use the browser they last used with XP. That does not bode well for IE's market share.

Sounds like Google is the Borg not the Federation.
