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+.

Damn them. I had hoped for a usable browser based on Qt (four). I chose Chrome over Firefox on Windows due to its great Aero integration and because I don't surf on Windows so much that I'd miss AdBlock.

But on Linux... A "Firefox clone" doing less than what Firefox's capable of... I just wish it at least lets me choose the native GTK theme over whatever they come up with.
