I subscribe to Redmond Press "Redmond Report" which is something of a news channel for Microsoft. The editor was asking for peoples reviews of Chrome so they could do a composite review. Having recently done a post about chrome on my blog I wrote the day it came out I decided to send him the URL as my Reader Review. I was surprised last week when the headliner of that edition featured my (this) site.
The full article is here, but here is what it said:
Shiny, Happy Chrome Site
One reader gets down to the nitty gritty with Chrome. Plus, clickjacking makes its presence known, details on the next rev of Visual Studio released, and more.

Reader Nate sent me an e-mail last week about his online review of Chrome. The review was so well-done and so well-written, I thought I'd give good, old Nate a plug.
What Nate did is similar to what I'm doing with an upcoming Reader Review -- getting the skinny on Chrome. In Nate's case, we see one very well-informed opinion backed by his benchmarks. In my story, over a dozen Redmond Report readers will help form an overall evaluation of Chrome.
Here's what Nate liked: the sparse interface, speed and private browsing (what are you trying to hide, Nate?). On his not-so-good list? No advances in bookmarking and a processor-intensive architecture.
In addition to that I also received some very good comments about the post. Personally, I didn't feel like this was one of my better posts but I'm glad that it was found to be informational to some.
