The waiting is the hardest part

The crew at Google must be jumping through hoops to keep the servers from crashing -- Chrome is supposedly coming today, and I know I'm far from the only impatient would-be user reloading their blog for updates and hitting the putative download link (I found it by searching on, um, Google) every 10 minutes. Right now, that link just redirects users to their own "iGoogle" home pages.

Don't know about you, but I'm all for the browser market being, for all practical purposes, split two ways -- between Firefox and anything other than Internet Explorer. The Chrome beta is Windows only, but Mac and Linux versions are allegedly in the works.

I'll update this post when the beta actually shows, and if I can get it, install it, and use it, I'll let you know how that goes too.

[Update: Thanks to Chris Moore (see comments) for a working download link. I'm going to liveblog the install in a separate post. Actually, I've been doing so in a text file, but I'm going to post what I have so far now, then update it - TLK]
