    WebKit inside, like Safari so the "HTML" part should be supported.
    But with the brand new V8 Javascript engine...

    Google will become much worse than Microsoft (which, in my opinion, may have already happened but not showing in mass scale).

    I predict in 7-8 years from now people will be whining about Google and their below the belt practices, they will get regulated, fined etc.

    I already dislike them cause they hide behind a nice face but their purposes are much more evil than Microsoft's in the 90's.

    what, even despite their motto?

    as someone who has worked with companies and technology other than Microsoft for the last 20 years (and indeed closely with microsoft itself), I cannot imagine any other company being even as remotely evil. no other company I have seen has been so clinically devious and ruthless, supressing their competition while producing such appauling quality software.

    i have no love for google, however their software works, it's fast, it's relatively bug free, it pushes the envelope and is often groundbreaking.

    Having just downloaded and installed Chrome I can confirm that the HTML UI is working ok. However it is ONLY the HTML UI which is working. The advanced UI is not actually accessible since every time the user clicks on the "Advanced Version" link they're kicked back to the HTML UI.

    I really hope it's just a matter of tweaking a variable somewhere to allow Chrome to access the AJAX version although I'm not sure a Yahoo owned company is going to be so keen on getting Google's browser supported

    Come on, let's be realistic here. Let me re-phrase the question to something more appropriate:

    how long will it take Google Chrome to support Zimbra?

    I *really* like Google Chrome, but we can't expect the world to adapt to a new browser overnight, with only 2 main contenders on the block for years.

    for me it's already a head of FF in that it uses windows internet settings which mean i can push out proxy settings to it via policy, without having the crap that is IE.

    The second the bug is sorted one way or the other it will become the company browser.

    That's true, although is seems not to perform NTLM auth with our firewall like IE does and FF will (if turned on)

    Now I can't wait for the Linux version. I looked at Chrome, but I don't browse in Windows so it's sorta useless to me.
