There’s a lot of confusion about Google’s new browser, Chrome, and a lot of questions are being asked.

Is it a web browser? Is it better than Firefox? Is it an operating system? Is it going to kill Windows? Can it help you lose weight? Will it make your penis larger? Can it be used as a vibrator?

Whether you’re an average consumer looking to browse the Internets in the most efficient way possible or a former securities analyst who thinks the “technology stack” refers to pancakes, this post should clear things up for you.

    “Chrome isn’t an operating system.”

    Amazingly, the few examples you cited yesterday were just a drop in the bucket of confusion on this one, and I don’t get it. The link says “for Vista or XP.” You install it like any other program. You run it like any other program, yet people seem to think that as soon as Chrome fires up it’s “in your face, Microsoft!”

    On the positive side, I didn’t get the ruler out or anything, but my penis feels larger when I’m using Chrome.

    You can install it like any other program.

    You run it like any other program.

    And it has an icon like any other program.

    But when you run it, SURPRISE!


    A web browser, in fact.

    That’s right. It’s the same content, with a faster interface for crap I never used [Read: Google Apps]
