- It uses, not a multi-threaded design, but a multi-process-design, which incurs some extra overhead but which also means there's no memory creep and that closed tabs (each tab is a process) return 100% of the allocated memory.
- Because of the above, bad plug-ins or websites can't crash or freeze your entire browser, just the tab. Enter the "sad tab."
- Also related..., you can monitor individual websites for performance.
- It will use Webkit.
- They are touting platform independence and mention the ability to embed.
- It's tab-oriented, and tabs can be detached.

- It has a Prism-like mode for web apps like Google Docs
- It has a "default deny" security policy and sandboxes as much as possible.
- It includes Google Gears for off-line work.
