More AWESOMENESS from my favorite G

In case you've forgotten that I live on the almost bleeding edge of Google technology (at least as far as Chrome is concerned - "almost," because I'm not on Chromium, I'm just on Chrome's developer's build), here are a few reminders:

Latest Chrome dev build finally gets rid of the "go" button:

I never understood the go button.  Who used it?  Seriously?  Additionally, this build now includes Chrome PDF Viewer built in (but disabled) as a plugin.  (Type "about:plugins" into your Chrome address bar to find it.)  It's not amazing right now, but it's not even turned on yet, so I imagine it should be pretty cool, sometime soon.

Sharing in Google Docs just got easier:

Just when I thought it couldn't get any easier!  I use SharePoint at my internship and, no offense to my potential Microsoft (fans/employee) reader(s), but permissioning on SharePoint is about as painless as passing kidney stones.

Honestly, if you're not using Chrome and Google Docs yet, what's wrong with you?  (I can forgive you using IE 6 at work, but at home?!)

I want to know what sort of arrangement you have with big "G".

Or perhaps they are using the Imperius curse on you??

I'll see you in ORLANDO at the 3 Broomsticks.

Does this mean that you are using Chrome and Google Docs, then?

The arrangement is strictly all my greatest secrets for some free, internet software.

No, you won't see me in Orlando - I'm too much of a too-cool-for-school book "purist." But you may see me in Google Docs!

I wish more people would use this. It would be like sharing a universal language. Then we could all say Merci Bouquet.

Thanks, President O. By the way, it's merci beaucoup. ;)
