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+.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I'm certainly pleased with their decision to use GTK+ over QT at this point. I have selfish reasons for this, I admit it. I want to be able to use Chrome under Linux, and GTK+ is the only major toolkit with true accessibility support. This should integrate with GNOME nicely and, given it's using Webkit to boot, should make for a very nice experience. I'd love to be able to use something other than Mozilla products for browsing on Linux.
