Will Chrome take over from IE & Firefox?

I’ve just downloaded Chrome, the new open source Google browser, and am trying to come to terms with the very different interface. It is claimed to be much faster than any other browser and more stable. It is certainly cleaner and less cluttered but I have yet to decide whether or not I will make it my main browser (Firefox is still rather “cool” I think).

There’s a delightful comic e-book detailing the philosophies and development of Google Chrome. Even in this simplified form I find it difficult to understand though I do think it is a great way to try and get the message across to new and potential users.

It is more likely to take market share from Firefox than from IE because most IE users are too set in their ways to try anything new, however the fact that, like Firefox, it is open-source will make for some interesting new developments in both browsers.
