sure you all have heard of Google Chrome. Reading their comic strips
, I got reminded of Postgres, because they use a multi-process
architecture  as well, selling it as *the* new security feature.
Maybe we can hop on that train? Something like:
"Google got inspired by Postgres: they use the same
multi-process architecture for their browser as Postgres
already features for many years. Simply because it
provides better crash-safety than threaded applications."
It might help a bit in getting rid of those puzzled faces that tend to
appear when telling people, that Postgres doesn't use threads...
Even if we don't push that, it certainly is another good and famous
example of multi-process architectures.

(processes vs threads starts at page 3)

PS: I'm already wondering how their Browser copes with an OOM killer ;-)
