Google A major complaint about Google's Chrome web browser has been that so far, it is still not available on anything other than Windows. Google promised to deliver Chrome to Mac OS X and Linux as well, but as it turns out, this is a little harder than they anticipated, Ben Goodger, Google's Chrome interface lead, has explained in an email. It has also been revealed what toolkit the Linux version of Chrome will use: Gtk+.

They didn't say that QT was bad... they said they wanted to use the native toolkit. So the question is: what is the native toolkit on Linux? While it's not as clearcut as windows or mac os x, gtk/gnome has more users than qt/kde, so it makes sense to use that as "native".
