This Week's Topics

Comments from the Editor

The Beatles sang, "All you need is love, love, love is all you need." The question today is, do you need another browser?

Google is suppose to be launching a beta of their new Chrome browser today in order to take some of the love away from Internet Explorer, FireFox, and the other browsers. The question is, will you be giving Google the love?

Google announced details of their beta browser using an online comic book. You can find it at http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/index.html.

Until next week...
