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+.

What this does show is one of the following:

1. Google doesn't seem to be a company with a central management and consists out of several smaller companies.
Google Earth is made with Qt. Why did they choose Qt and not GTK+? Are the developers that create Google Earth more familiar with Qt and/or C++?

2. They experienced bad things while developing Google Earth with Qt. But it would be very nice to hear about these problems.
