    If you want to give the basic technology a spin, Stainless is based on a similar premise as Chrome:
    Stainless for OS X Leopard

    It also separates each tab into its own process and is webkit based. It's missing a lot of basic functionality, but it gives you a taste of what Chrome might be like.

    I just grabbed that. I hope they maybe add a few more features as what is there looks interesting so far.

    So far I am not all that impressed with Chrome, but waiting for the OSX version so I can mess with it more.
