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+.

If you say that a Qt license is expensive you do not now anything about managing a company, not anything about software licences, not anything about software development and not anything about economics.

The licenses of Qt are not expensive at all.
Of course, if you're just an amateur developer sitting in your bedroom, it IS expensive. But it is not for companies making software.

I can easily show you software that is 100 times more expensive PER USER than Qt. And even then, nobody leaves some sleep about purchasing it.
