Google's browser has been released- I'm using it now. Pretty spiffy, I like a lot of the features. Best part so far is it's very quick.

It's based off webkit.

I like it so far as well, though I've run into a few cert issues.

Browsing with it currently. I'm not sure yet what I think. Anyone else tried/trying it?

I may try it later. Walt Mossberg has a generally favorable review up on the wsj.com site.

No idea on benefits yet, they claim it's meant for new media rich websites. I like the simple UI though.

It feels faster because it's more efficient at drawing the pages out and using things stored in memory. You'll see similar effects in Safari, because the same code is behind the two.

No, but they already know everything about you now anyways, including those naughty sites you looked at last night.
