Sarah tipped me off to this yesterday, but Google has launched a web browser (like internet explorer.) I have only been using it since last night, but it has some sweet new features. It also seems to be pretty quick. It isn't perfect (some facebook links wouldn't open for me) but it is pretty slick and fast! If you click here you will go to the site where you can download and learn about it. I especially love the feature that lets you easily make desktop links to online programs (works great for the new gradebook and subbing request system.)
Thanks for the tip Sarah!
