Google Chrome Faking It

So, the world is abuzz with the new Google browser, Chrome.

Blogoscoped have a story on it, and in that they point out that there’s nothing live at the supposed URI, http://www.google.com/chrome. What you do get is an HTTP 404 error:

Error page with a simple headline saying 'Not found', and a line below saying 'Error 404'

This could indicate that there is no Chrome project but lo and behold! The error page does not look like a usual 404 page from Google:

An error page with a Google logo, and an informative text on what to do next

Thus, it would appear that the Chrome page is in fact a fake error page, for reasons beyond me. But it certainly looks like it.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
