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+.

Actually, you are quite wrong. Their arguments are far from "lame".

Google simply acknowledges that there are strengths and weaknesses in each platform, and that to use the "lowest common denominator" would be to discard some potentially useful features of other platforms. Does QT4 support Core Data or the upcoming Grand Central for example?

Really -- the Linux brigade should be grateful that Google are even bothering to do more than a simple Wine-port.
