And Now For Something Completely Different … Comic Books

Google have released their new Chrome browser. Nice and simple, ‘though I won’t be switching to it as my main browser for a while yet. I’ll be sticking with Firefox.

That said, I was intrigued by the documentation that comes with it.

I really like the approach at getting the message across and challenging the accepted notions of user assistance that comes with these kind of products. Good job.

But I wonder how it will fare in translation? Can it be exported to SVG? XLIFF? Can SDL Worldserver do it?  Or “volunteers”? Or will there be a different version for the international versions (there should be an alternative version for accessibility anyway)?

How novel (groan)…
