The Google Chrome logo also reminded me of the Simon game, especially this depiction:

I was also amused to see a few "alternative" logos for a Google Browser from 2007. Amusingly, the second one is entitled "Chrome":

I guess that sometimes, the wrong language you want to change from ain't english:

Google Chrome installed in the wrong language, how can I change it?

You can switch to another language in [wrench icon] ->
Параметры -> Малой Tweaks -> Изменить шрифт и языковые настройки -> Языки -> Google хром язык / орфографический корректор языка

You can change the sspipes.scr by renaming this one and put another in c:windowssystem32 with same name :)

I love the way the search (the page) feature localizes results along the scrollbar (look the orange lines)

They should seriously consider turning the auto-download off. It's major design flaw.

Firefox always prevents users from accidentally executing EXEs by allowing only one option "Save File", which is a good thing.

On the search engine front – has anyone determined whether the presence of the search box is a result of local parsing of URLs (the code being part of Chrome) or through identification and flagging by Google with the classification as a "search" being made available to Chrome?

The "search engines – edit search engines" functionality is part of the Firefox bookmark functionality too (although much less accessible in Fx 3.x than in Fx 2.x), where the space character " " is used instead of tab.

If you use Chromium instead of Chrome you get to see new features more often, and bugs as well.
From Google Operating System:
   You can install the latest snapshots for Windows here :
http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-xp/?O=D

Here's something new, Chromium recognizes RSS feeds.

I've used the mini installer from the latest build but don't see any way Chromium recognizes RSS feeds... can you explain more or post a screenshot of the feature?

Nope, the latest Chromium doesn't has a feed preview feature and I doubt that this is a priority for the team.

Does it not look very much like the google app engine logo ? Just the back of it? The relevance would be meaningful

Have any security experts pointed out that the "report bug or broken website" feature has the checkbox for the send screenshot checked by default?

Drew [PersonRank 0]

furthermore, the screenshot capture for "report bug or broken website" has no disclaimer about being only within the browser window.

Regarding Site Search – You can use the omnibox this way to search the current page you are on:

So you're already on: http://www.example.com/whateverpage
Add <search query> site: in front so you have the following:

<search query> site:http://www.example.com/whateverpage
