Reuven Cohen's Blog There has been a lot of excitment around the early announcement that Google will be releasing a new open source web browser on September 2 called Chrome. Slashdot as well a few other blogs are saying the new browser will be based on Webkit, the same basic engine as Mac OS X’s Safari.
