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+.

That's gonna be one major obstacle for Qt in the future. Do you trust Nokia? Well, I don't. Not a bit. And therefore I'd advise anyone to use GTK+ when it comes to new open source software projects. It's basically the same situation before GTK+ appeared - now with Nokia only worse. Sorry.
