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+.

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


The words "firefox" and "better" need to be at least ten sentences apart

I have an absolute dislike for Firefox, whether it be on Windows, Linux, or the moon. Like Opera, and IE too now, it tries to be too much. A browser is a tool to show web pages. That's it. I don't need awesome bars. I don't need plugin frameworks. I don't need integrated RSS. I don't need themeing.

I am very peculiar when it comes to browsers. The features coming in Chrome 2 have me worried that Chrome too inevitably will move towards Firefox/Opera/IE.
