Lightstreamer on Google Chrome

Chrome, the new Google browser, was released a couple of days ago as a beta version for Windows Vista/XP and officially entered the browser war, currently dominated by Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Chrome offers many interesting features, aimed at making the browsing experience more robust, more secure, and faster. I was especially interested in the new V8 JavaScript engine, with its just-in-time compiler and a full-fledged garbage collector.

We tested Lightstreamer on Chrome soon after its release, and the results were amazing, as all the Comet demos worked seamlessly out of the box. I posted a quick video tour:

Some further considerations are on Comet Daily.

A press release is available.
