All,

While we must acknowledge that Google has been scrambling since the leak of
their impending "Chrome" web browser, it is indeed truly sad that the "comic
book" they professionally produced and released on the web today
(www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/index.html) is nothing but a series of
images with, guess what - no alternative text at all.

I guess page conformance really isn't that important after all, and that
Google's commitment to an accessible web is mostly just empty words, as
actions really do speak louder than pictures, uhm, I mean words.
