To make the story short: Before downloading Google Chrome, as usual, I have opened web browser and started to type “Google Chrome” in the address bar, predicting that it will lead me to the Google search results.
To my surprise, once I have typed that into Firefox 3 address bar and hit enter, it has opened Chrome home page instead.

Kind of nice gesture from Mozilla, I guess.
