Sundar Pichai, vice president of product management, and Linus Upson, service Google engineering director, wrote in the official Chrome blog:
We owe a great debt to many open source projects, and we're committed to continuing on their path. We've used components from Apple's WebKit and Mozilla's Firefox, among others -- and in that spirit, we are making all of our code open source as well. We hope to collaborate with the entire community to help drive the web forward.
The web gets better with more options and innovation. Google Chrome is another option, and we hope it contributes to making the web even better.
The new browser is eventually going to be multi platform, with Linux and Mac versions already underway. Google have produced a 38 page web comic, that aims to introduce and explain Chrome. A wiki has also been created which gives further details on the project.. You can also discuss the new browser here in our forums.
