On Thursday, Google announced Wave. While the internet is swirling with figuring out how this will change email and social networking, I would like to point a few things out about this. First and foremost, it appears as if it wont be released until late this year and I have not seen how this will work in other browsers such as Firefox or Opera, since the screen shots were from Chrome. Don’t get me wrong, I dig Chrome but I like Firefox better right now due to all of my plugins and such. Second, I have to figure that the adaptation rate to this will be fairly minimal as it appears that there might be a fairly decent size learning curve and most people are adverse to change. Third, I would love to see a full demo in action on Wave since I am still a bit unclear as to how it will help me be more productive in the long.
All in all however, its a great announcement and I am looking forward to seeing more when they release more news.
