Do we need another browser?

The Internet is abuzz with the news of Goliath Google preparing to unleash its net browser on the world. This seems to be an almost messianic deliverance for geeks and Net-junkies.

The launch strategy seems to be quite unique. Instead of the usual fireworks, Google has let out 'Google Chrome' as a comic book release. Check out http://books.google.com/books?id=8UsqHohwwVYC&printsec=frontcover#PPA1,M1

The big question playing on my mind - do we really need another browser? Is Chrome going to suck us deeper into the Net and Googlize our world even more?

Well, let us wait for the browser to come out in the open.

No! We don't need yet another browser unless it adheres to web standards correctly. It's hard enough as it is getting sites to work in IE, Firefox, Safari and Opera!
