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.


Right, and what harm could they possibly do? When Qt 4.5 is under the LGPL, anyone could take the LGPLed source and continue the efforts if Qt would somehow stagnate under Nokia.

In reality I see the opposite happening: Qt seems to have accelerated over the past year.
