But people hasn't pay enough attention to another piece of chrome that's also really interesting, I'm talking about the comic presentation.
This "comic" is also impresive, at least for the IT people, for the ones of you who hasn't RTFC it's time to do it and agree or disagree with me.
From my point of view it's a remarkable example about how to explain:
- Design of an application focused on threads
- Issolation (inherited from the treads) that make the browser more reliable and secure
- User interface: even if the address bar has been taked only 1 inch down it means that it belong to the tab rather than the tab to the browser and the bar to the browser, minimalistic, where are the file, edit menus? do you miss them?? I don't!
- memory administration (direct benefit of the new architecture of the browser)
- Garbage collection, and approaches to implement it
- psychology: people wan't to see thing's that they don't want other to know they saw, I'm talking about: incognito window
- what an application should be: "if you can ignore the browser we have made a good job"
- security levels and how read|write permissions should be granted
what I think:
- want to write something for all the browsers but not every browser support the same features, use gears (of course, if chrome become the new defacto browser, or everybody adopt the new standard)
- let's call it a os so we can throw it to microsoft (don't know who started this but it's a stupid) and make publicity
- it's open source, it's faster, it's better (IMHO of course), but the first one limit the adoption of the foreones, so we are making bigger the difference between the open source project's who addopt it and the close source browsers.
