The first page reads "Chrome by Google ... A fast, new browser. Made for everyone" (using what might be the same font we saw on the GiveChrome.com microsite, but I have problems connecting to that one right now so can't tell...).

[Thanks Manoj!]

Indeed. They have started using offline media more and more for lost few months.

The video ads for Chrome (on Hulu.com) are really good. Very well made.

This article gives a clue as to why Google may be pushing Chrome hard in Europe:

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hG2CfCNAqdPhFu-F-Ubnx7ZCBNhgD9CKGSL00

Quote: "In a deal with regulators Wednesday, Microsoft Corp. will from March provide a pop-up screen to all users of its Windows operating system, asking them to choose one or more of five major browsers — including Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Google's Chrome and Apple's Safari — and seven smaller rivals."

The AP story mentions.

EU site on choosing a browser: http://www.browserchoice.eu

This website is dead or not live yet and whats interesting is that its name server points to

ns1.msft.net
ns3.msft.net
ns4.msft.net

Amazon.co.uk has a Google Chrome ad right across its header today. And there's a Google Chrome Flash ad on the right hand side too:
