Google Chrome V8 vs. Tamarin

In case you have been living under a rock with no internet access, you may not have heard about the new Google web browser called Chrome. It sounds great in the comic strip, but I can't help but wonder what let Google to build their own Javascript VM (called V8). Now I am no expert in the field of virtual machines so I would be interested in anyone that can explain why the folks at Google would choose to start their own VM rather than work with the Tamarin team. For those of you who don't know, Tamarin was the result of Adobe open sourcing the Flash/Actionscript Virtual Machine.

Why not use Tamarin? Because ECMA tanked ECMAScript 4, ya think?

I just assume that Google wants to do everything on its own to become either totally independent from or a real monopolist.
