It’s the little things

Today, Google announced a new Beta release of Chrome. This is not unusual; it happens every six weeks or so, but in this case the announcement blog post was authored by me. That really isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things, I know; there’s stuff all over the web with my name […]
