Google Chrome to be available for public beta at September 2, 2008 19:00 UTC.
As I have mentioned below, the browser is not available for download yet so please stop posting links to download it. Once its released I will post an update so its best to just stay tuned here.
I ran across many blogs and news sites a few hours ago that were claiming to give the newly announced Google Chrome browser (or a direct link to it) for free download. While I will not point out the exact sites, I will still warn readers that the official word on the browser will come on September 2, 2008. Apparently, the so called Google Chrome which is given for download is the Flock web browser with a theme applied to it.
I would like to take this opertunity to post an actual screen shot of the browser as posted by CNET, on their blog. The screenshot clearly depicts that there is a lot of difference between the Google browser and Flock. While the source of the screenshot is enough to warrent its authenticity, any experienced google product user would clearly know that this is an original shot and not Photoshop in play. The simplistic interface and blue color scheme easily point out that this is a google work of art.
So people don’t be fooled by the fake download links and keep in mind that Google plans to make any public announcement on the official Google Chrome website going live soon. If you had any similar experience with this product then share your story below.
