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+.

GNOME will not use Chrome for the same reason it does not use Firefox - it is not a GNOME application. The GNOME developers have very high standards when it comes to integration and strict interface guidelines - I really doubt Google Chrome will follow the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines:

That's why they have Epiphany. A true GNOME application.
