It could possibly get more classic then this.  Very, very amusing that someone would go through and word count speeches.  Check this post out from the NYT….

…and yes, it was done.  Completely hilarious.  Well, at least they aren’t going after a 17 yr old girl… like SHE didn’t have enough to deal with as is… way to go!

There has been some buzz about the new browser released by Google, Chrome.  We’ve seen a lot in the browser community in regards to updates and actions to make the experience bigger, better and faster from the 2 majors companies, Microsoft and Mozilla.  This is even true with the introduction of Apple’s Safari to the PC.  I hope that this insurgency of the ‘newer’ and better browsers does not stop considering there are quite a few changes that still need to be made to improve the overall performance usability of the internet.  So, Chrome seems to be a step in that direction.

Being previously unaware that they were even working on the browser in the first place, this came as a shock to me and at initial glance at this software, I was attested to it.  I found that it literally made me feel like a child playing with internet Play-Doh.  As I dug deeper into it, general browsing of sites and hitting links from friends over chat, I found myself doing a lot less work to view what I wanted to view.  I also found tab dragging very friendly, fast which made me want to see what was happening to my system while I did this.  Come to find out, I noticed quite a few chrome.exe processes running which made me laugh and almost uninstall the software.  I say this, based on that as browsers stand now, you make a new window, you get a new process and tabs are loaded within that.  But in looking further in how you can pretty close to almost dynamically create new windows from them, rearrange things like a Lego fortress.  Furthermore, Shift-Esc allows to show what each of these is doing memory and CPU wise.  From a geek perspective, I am happy to see this.

So, this brings me to the usage of about.  You’ve got everything from funny to useful for the about section of the browser.  I am not here to really describe these, so enjoy them for yourself:

about:memory
about:stats
about:network
about:internets
about:histograms
about:dns
about:cache
about:plugins
about:version
about:objects
about:chrome-nativeui
view-cache:{URL}
view-source:{URL}

All in all, I’m glad they’ve released this.  I hope it helps in pushing the internet browsing idea to another level.  I guess time will tell, but so far, so good!
