What : Alternative browsers for the alternative OS
Date : Mon 15 June 2010
Time : 7 PM to 9 PM
Where: Room 301, Morse Hall, UNH, Durham, NH

 This month at SLUG, we will be exploring Chrome[1], Google's web
browser.  Chrome has been available for Linux for some time now, but
just recently had the "Beta" label removed (although with Google,
there's not really much of a difference).  I (Ben) thought it might be
interesting to explore Chrome a bit more.  I'll show off the obvious
to those who haven't seen it before.  Then we'll all explore what's
out there for add-ons and extensions, and try and look under the hood.
 We'll be making this up as we go along[2], so bring your laptop and
join the discovery.    Free copy of Google Chrome to anyone who
attends.

  If that can't fill two hours, we'll check out the latest incarnation
of the Opera[3] web browser, too.
