.Net Magazine - Issue 182

I answered the 'Big Question' in .net magazine this month: http://bit.ly/2rBdSVI had mixed feelings about the Chrome announcement as I am a huge Mozilla fan. Google dropping the Chrome bomb just a couple of days after announcing an extended search engine deal for Firefox felt a little staged.In terms of pure performance, I like it. It’s very quick (although beta products often are) and the UI is absolutely spot-on. However the real test here will be with the Mac version, where the standards are generally higher. I’m not really sure about the new ‘home’ view. While it’s interesting to see my most common sites, I don’t find that particularly useful. The implications for iGoogle aren’t too clear, either. But it will be fascinating to see what happens when the code is opened up. Will the others integrate or reinvent?
