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?

I guess you can't please the Cocoa nazis.

Does not look native? well, text does not line up in edit boxes, none of the controls line up correctly, etc...

One of the biggest reasons I use a Mac is for Cocoa / Objective-C. On linux I use GNUStep, which is not bad, but still needs a bit of work.

One of the big reasons I still use Windows, is C# / DevStudio is such a nice development env, although WinForms with Mono is definitely coming along nicely.

So, I guess your right about not pleasing the Cocoa nazis if thats what you want to call me. So I suppose say you had a really nice car you really liked to drive, and someone came along and said we are going to take your nice car, and you have to drive a Yugo or a Pinto because they were the lowest common denominator, and you did not want to give up your nice car, then I suppose that they might call you a car nazi?
