Rust-free?


Google has launched its very own web browser, Google Chrome. They've even included this tutorial site that looks like a manga, albeit its lack of anything interesting from a manga.
Is anyone using it on PC? It's not available for Mac. Yet.

And I think I found the name's story from Answers.com:

Chrome. Hacker Slang: Showy features added to attract users but contributing little or nothing to the power of a system. “The 3D icons in Motif are just chrome, but they certainly are pretty chrome!” Usually added to gratify developers' own desires for featurefulness. Often used as a term of contempt.
