There are some design concepts you may easily recognize if you happen to already be a Google Chrome user. Also, there seems to be a couple dashes of Safari thrown in there as well for good measure (although anytime you add the Mac traffic lights on a mockup I come to that conclusion). For those interested the developer tools have a brand new look as well, could be quite useful.

Google has also pulled the curtain back on an extensions library (which is still in beta) but currently they only work for Windows and Linux versions of Chrome. I'll still give this browser a whirl on the Mac for giggles.

Makers of Luxo lamp decide to sue Disney and Pixar over mascot usage and name.Makers of Luxo lamp decide to sue Disney and Pixar over mascot usage and name.

The Norwegian company that originally designed the iconic lamp is claiming copyright infringement.
