Nice try, Google
Amid much buzz in the Geekosphere, Google today quietly released "Chrome", their new web browser touted here, oddly, in comic book form. The error above was the result when I tried to actually, you know, run it.
To be fair, Google generally does a great job in their development efforts and this is their very first public beta drop, to my knowledge. I've heard from a few people for whom it actually worked, but at least five times as many who got the same error I did.
Update: It's a conflict with SEP. Fixed with Google's work-around of editing the target property in Chrome's start-up shortcut by adding --no-sandbox after the last quote. So far, it's a pretty nice, clutter-free web browser.
