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


Same here. I prefer GNOME, and use only Gtk+ applications because I don't like my stuff looking out of place. This has nothing to do with which is the better toolkit - in all honesty, I don't give a rat's bum about toolkits. I want what looks and works the best, and using a strictly Gtk+ desktop, I'm happy Google chose Gtk+.

Purely selfish, yes.
