In Google's bid for ahem world domination they've released Chrome. http://www.google.com/chrome
It's a new browser. I've had a little play with it and it seems pretty basic at this point; lots of IE features I would like to see like a links bar. (If this feature exists I don't intuitively know how to switch it on). The search/address bar is really good (it's linked to google and is all in one solution).
It'll be awhile I'm sure before it becomes widely used enough to warrant adoption in our QA testing but it's interesting to see the birth of a new Browser and certainly worth everyone having a look.
Internet Explorer 8 is also on it's way, http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/beta/default.aspx but I've not been able to get it working yet. It'll be a good day when that launches :-)
