Prior to the press conference being held at 18:00 GMT (GMT converter) where the beta will be announced, Google has released a comic about Chrome. In my opinion this is a really interesting way to generate buzz about a product.

Paul Thurrott, noted Microsoft and Windows pundit, has an early preview and his take on Chrome.
