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 prefer GNOME, and use only Gtk+ applications because I don't like my stuff looking out of place.

I sincerely hope you're happy with all three of them. With one button on each.

This has nothing to do with which is the better toolkit - in all honesty, I don't give a rat's bum about toolkits.

Which application do you like and feel works better - Firefox on Windows or Firefox on Linux?

Do you believe that having used Firefox on Windows that a user is going to be happy with Firefox on Linux and stay put? ;-)

I want what looks and works the best, and using a strictly Gtk+ desktop, I'm happy Google chose Gtk+

Well, hold on. Google haven't told us how they're actually going to get Chrome distributed and installed on your desktop yet. That might be even more fun ;-).
