    For a minute there, I thought I was reading an old article:

    "Chrome" download should begin in about 35 minutes.A press conference is scheduled for 11 AM PDT,and downloading the browser should be available around that time.

    The following link has been quoted in numerous articles online.

    http://www.google.com/chrome

    I tried that link late yesterday evening and it worked at that time,but it's not working currently.I imagine once they have their press conference,the link should work.

    They kept a pretty tight lid on this one, I only found out about it yesterday as well.
