Happy 6th birthday, Google Chrome.
I am trying to remember the day when they released Chrome, and the comic book that leaked ahead of the launch. I read the book, downloaded Chrome, started using it. And yes, I did a post on my personal blog soon after that.
After a few years on Firefox, it was a welcome change, the UI, and the new ideas that Chrome introduced. There were no themes or extensions, but there was simplicity and speed.
6 years, and Chrome has grown from a browser to a platform. There are issues that came as a side effect of that growth, but overall, things have been GREAT.
Chrome and Chrome Story have made a huge impact on my personal life. So, along with the birthday wishes and congratulations to the entire Chrome team, let me say this too:
