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+.

QT4 apps on Gnome

I am a Gnome user but I use a number of QT4 Apps on Gnome such as Avogadro. There is a Clearlooks theme for QT4 and then the apps look quite at home on Gnome. I wouldn't mind Chrome being on QT4.

I think it was mad for Google not to have developed Chrome on QT as a real cross platform app in the first place. Their arguments for not doing so are pretty lame and don't hold water.

It is time Google developers realized that they should be building applications as cross platform from the get go.
