Excellent post.

Are there no graphic designers or UI/X people on the team?(not that engineers can’t do design/UI but it seems likely there is more than just the above helping)

As is usually the case, you cover an important industry announcement with more background and research than 99% of the trade press. I appreciate all the work!

Ben Goodger, Google Chrome’s tech lead, is best known for assembling the Firefox web browser out of Mozilla’s SeaMonkey application suite.

Maybe you meant “Mozilla Suite”, not SeaMonkey (born in 2005 from the Suite’s ashes, while Firefox 1.0 was released in november 2004) ;-)

Ben Goodger is the tech lead on the UI of Chrome. Mentioned approximately 14 minutes into the Google Chrome announcement video.

Ian’s resume mentions “developing technologies and writing specifications for internal products” and if I was a Googler I would have sought him out early in the process.Ian is involved in the general story of Google’s browser involvement and exploring capabilities. His ongoing role in Chrome is unknown.
