'In your face, IE8'
From Google's new Chrome Experiments project:
The site presently includes 19 animated micro-games and widgets that are admittedly very cool. For example, one game called Browser Ball lets you load up separate browser windows, then "throw" a ball between them. Google Gravity makes the company's iconic search page shatter to the bottom of the screen, where each of the page's elements remain functional.
Demos at Chrome Tools are all tested with Chrome, of course - but most appear to work with the other major browsers as well. Your millage may vary.
It's all very slick and yes, perhaps even awesome. But Microsoft's argument with IE8 has been that raw script performance isn't really the main concern for your average web surfer. Mind, this position is almost guaranteed to change as soon as IE catches up.
But I'm sure they'd appreciate name suggestions in line with what we've already seen. I like Internet Explorer's "Man-dozer."
