Hi Jim

Thanks for bringing attention to this. It's an interesting project.

First, the idea of having one process per tab and even compile the JavaScript to speed up execution (the V8 engine, go to page 13 pp) is quite clever. 

Second, from a communications' viewpoint, the comic book style presentation is extremely well done. Notice that the characters on stage are the actual key developers by name. It is amazing how a small touch of high-level humour can lift the experience without degrading the message. Even if you are not interested in the browser project, you should browse the presentation.

Hi All:

By the way, you may be interested that apparently google is releasing a new
browser called Chrome, based on webkit (originally developed by the Linux
KDE desktop guys and Apple for their safari browser)
