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+.

What do you mean it doesn't look native? Specific examples?

We have clients using our Qt apps for vision research on Macs. They couldn't tell any difference. One of them has OCD and any Mac app not behaving like one drives him nuts. In fact when coupled with the unified toolbar look they couldn't tell any difference whatsoever.

You ought to try out the examples that come with the RC release and post the discrepancies here. That would be a more useful comment.

By the way, I have often seen comments like yours even for wxWidget apps. wxWidgets uses native carbon widgets like SWT.

I guess you can't please the Cocoa nazis.
