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+.

Of course, if you're just an amateur developer sitting in your bedroom, it IS expensive. But it is not for companies making software.


The funny thing is, I was/am a developer sitting in my bedroom and I bought a Qt license. Yes it was fairly expensive, but it was an investment, and made my small business possible. I can say with 100% conviction based on my experience that without Qt I wouldn't have been successful with my software. Qt allowed me to produce something valuable with extremely limited resources (just me in my spare time, which isn't much). I tried other toolkits previously and they didn't allow that. It's that simple.
