Google ownz your browsing

With the news that Google is finally bringing out a browser, I ask why?

They've done a comic strip to illustrate why... which is very sinister some how:
http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/

Reasons quoted include less crashes, and faster web pages.

Which are non-reasons in my opinion.

My browsers rarely crash, can't remember last time one crashed on me. As to faster web pages, certainly I have no problems with rendering pages. The only slowdown is on things like the network connection.

What this is about is control, pure and simple. There's no need for a new browser; they should be throwing their weight behind Firefox if they really want a strong competitor to MS.

I really hate Google these days.
