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+.

Qt is not the better Toolkit. It is just another Toolkit. And for all the functions Qt brings besides QT GUI there are also solutions on GTK side.


It's not just the existance of a functionality that counts, it's how it's implemented and how it can be accessed and used, and how well it's documented. What you say can't be enough to base a decision on, you have to try coding for both to see why quite a number of people prefer QT/KDE. Well, you might not see it, or see it the other way around, so what ? Be happy there's the other(s) you can use.
