Wow - Google is getting bolder, isn't it? First the revolutionary search engine, then the additions to it (image/news/etc. search), then GMail, now this? How long can this continue?jet3004 said:Ahh, their taking over the world!!! And taking everyone's employees!
Wow, I'd love to get one of those...Those holes look like the wrapper on an Aero bar...Those in Canada and the UK know what I am talking about.iMeowbot said:
Nestlé used to sell those here (named Choco-Lite) but then they took them away And the Kit-Kats here are made under license by Hershey and taste wrong. Yay for importers. And yummy junk food.jet3004 said:Wow, I'd love to get one of those...Those holes look like the wrapper on an Aero bar...Those in Canada and the UK know what I am talking about.
We don't even really know that the project is a browser so far. Two of the names named so far are more into Java in the core and server end of things, and even Joe Beda isn't only into GUI development. All of them do seem to have virtual machine environments in common, and I've been wondering what they might do in the OS and VM arena ever since they hired Rob Pike.But seriously..When this browser comes out, do you think there will be a Mac OS X version???
I think the UI for GMail is decent. The searching is nice... Plus they added a few things that make it even better like "star" email... It makes important emails easier to find without searching.bentmywookie said:I have a GMail account and to be honest, I was a little dissappointed with the UI - things are not where you'd expect them, and generally, I have to search for things. The 1 gig feature is where they got it right though, and that's pretty much what generated the hype, as well as being able to use Google's search.
I actually love the simplicity of the Gmail interface. It's not cluttered with heavy graphics, because of this it is very fast. Auto-fill of address field from contacts, the way e-mails are grouped and displayed as "chats". I love it!bentmywookie said:I have a GMail account and to be honest, I was a little dissappointed with the UI - things are not where you'd expect them, and generally, I have to search for things.

Gmail is in beta and not in wide use. How is it making Google tons of money? Google makes no money when an ad is displayed. One must click on it for Google to earn.jet3004 said:GMAIL is impressive and is making Google tons of money. I could smack myself for never realizing this...A Google web browser was bound to happen, ESPECIALLY after Gmail. I am going to say that when it does come out, it is going to be very impressive because it is probably going to incorporate everything that is listed here: http://www.google.com/options/index.html, integrated with GMAIL, and of course, their search bar. I say it will be pretty nice...Only if it comes in an OS X version, though. But it would make a nice alternative for PC users.
I sort of agree. But competition brings the best out in people, maybe it will make firefox even better.Abstract said:A browser is just a browser. With so many decent browsers out, I don't see how another browser would be better than FireFox, for example. The only reason to make a Google browser or OS is to make sure you're completely absorbed into the Google world.....Google browser, Gmail, Google browser, plus those Google options/helpful sites. They want your entire web experience to go through them, and I think its smart on their part, but unless their browser can walk both my dogs and do my assignments, I don't see the allure of a browser better than Firefox, unless Firefox development transforms it into utter trash.
