I wasn´t very suprised about it – but I was very suprised about the way they do it. They seem to believe in my personal needs for a browser : “It has to be rock-solid”.
Take a look at the great comic (1st link) and the information in the blog (2nd link) for more technical stuff. The most interesting things :
- every tab will have a separate process (yesssssssssssss !!!)
- the browser will feature a self developed Java VM (V8), that compiles the source to machine code and executes it directly on the machine (so it will probably be much faster then nowadays VM´s)
