Google launches new browser!

Google is launching an open source web browser to compete with Internet Explorer and Firefox.

The browser is designed to be lightweight and fast, and to cope with the next generation of web applications that rely on graphics and multimedia. Called Chrome, it will launch as a beta for Windows machines in 100 countries, with Mac and Linux versions to come.

"We realized... we needed to completely rethink the browser," said in a blog post by Google.

The new browser will help Google take advantage of developments it is pushing online in rich web applications that are challenging traditional desktop programs.

Google has a suite of web apps, such as Documents, Picasa and Maps which offer functionality that is beginning to replace offline software.

Is this will be a successful browser, because there are many of them now rocking the market. Firefox,Safari and IE will face a tough competition?Is this a way to kill all other companies or so, because google is entering in everything on the internet now.May be this is helpful to growing technology,but may be it can make monopoly or something like that.Lets hope a better Open source thing from google.
