Here is an interesting twist: most of the technical details about Chrome cannot be found in blog postings or technical web documentation, but rather in the form of a comic book. Talk about weird! But the comic is actually full of very interesting details - definitely worth reading, especially if you are a web developer.
Steven Vaughan-Nichols has an excellent analysis of why V8 is really the big news, and what Google's motivations are for releasing Chrome. Fred Wilson adds some cloud computing perspective to the mix.
I'd be curious to see what kind of XML processing capabilities are included in V8 and what kind of XSLT stylesheet rendering Chrome is capable of (1.0 or 2.0). Unfortunately, so far Google hasn't released any technical details yet.
Needless to say, the blogosphere is buzzing with postings...
And to contrast all the excitement, there are also those who say the Chrome is irrelevant (at least until 2010).
Update: Very interesting review by Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal just appeared.
Update: Great article in Wired News just came out.
