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 can't follow you. Why would GNOME dump their default browser but KDE wouldn't?

Gnome treats its default browser as the redheaded stepchild. It's quite shameful. FF is effectively both KDE's and Gnome's default browser, in the real world. Which, as an advocate of Epiphany, annoys me no end. The Epiphany crew is working hard on dumping Gecko for WebKit. I am hoping that once they get loose from depending directly upon their most direct (and unsympathetic) competitor, and are using a superior rendering and javascript engine, Epiphany will finally come into its own and get the support it deserves.
