Sergey Brin Talks About Chrome For Macs and Google Books

Way back when, most of you said that you were planning on downloading Google Chrome when it came out. PC users — did you download it? And what do you think? Since I'm currently a Mac owner, I haven't had the opportunity to dive into Chrome's goodness, although I have been admiring the pretty Chrome themes in the meantime. Google's co-founder, Sergey Brin, recently spoke about Google Chrome and Mac availability at the Web 2.0 Summit. He said that the Chrome web browser can be downloaded from an unofficial location, but that it's still really buggy (crash alert!), as it's not even in beta yet. Brin also mentioned that he wishes the Mac version would have been available at the same time as the PC launch, which makes me think Chrome for Macs will be here sooner than we think.

And when asked about Google Books Search, Brin discussed some of the controversy surrounding the search tool and said that his ultimate goal is to give people access to millions of books, which he believes will be a successful venture.

And speaking of Google and some of its services and tools, here's a fun video that re-tells the entire Google story, which starts at the very beginning — from when Sergey met Larry. To watch it, just read more.
