Adobe Building Zoetrope, a Web "Time Machine" 133

Khuffie writes "Adobe, along with the University of Washington, are developing Zoetrope, an application that will offer a dynamic new view of the web. It is hard to explain on paper, but you can see a brilliant video of the application in action. Essentially, Zoetrope will allow users to travel back in time through a website, and see how the website gets changed. A user can create lenses on the website, for example, focusing on the price of a DVD at Amazon, and see how the price went up and down over the coming months. More interestingly, you can link lenses together across different websites, and for example, see how the price of gas was affected by say, the aggregated google news result of 'war.'"

I don't know, I just didn't like chrome. Whether it be I am just used to Firefox now or what. When I tried Chrome out it just didn't make enough of a difference for me. So what if the page renders in a half second to a second faster. That's not like it is saving me any real time. I like Google but I saw this step as a waste of time for them. Since they kinda sponsor Firefox. But to each their own.
