Google Chrome Now Available in Singapore and Australia

Who says the evolution of web browsers is over? Hot after the launch of Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2, Google released its browser – Chrome. Chrome is now avaliable for download from Singapore (Australia and pretty much everywhere else on the WWW in 40 other languages).

I’ll waiting for the reviews and further iterations of Chrome before I will consider downloading it for review purposes. It is highly encouraging to see the different set of innovative features added to the latest versions of the various web browsers.

We owe a great debt to many open source projects, and we’re committed to continuing on their path. … and in that spirit, we are making all of our code open source as well. We hope to collaborate with the entire community to help drive the web forward.” (Source: Google Blog, 1 Sep 08)

On a separate note, where is the link to download Chrome source code? Google’s intention is commendable, but where is the follow-up action?

Just looking at all the crowd and greasy fingers on the Microsoft Surface tables at Australia Tech.Ed 2008!

Digital agency Amnesia is showing off one of its Microsoft Surface tables to attendees of Tech.Ed in Sydney, following delivery of two units late last month. In a blog post, it was revealed that attendees of the event – which officially begins today – will be able to experience the much-hyped Surface technology first-hand.

The Surface table, which is located in the MSDN lounge in the exhibition hall, was already generating strong interest at the launch party last night. (see ITNews photo gallery).
