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+.

RE[4]: Why not QT?

I'm not looking to get into some long-winded debate here. I run 2 websites that appeal to the general linux crowd (not gnome, kde, or any distro specific) and get thousands of uniques per month.

Do you believe your websites are representative of the whole world? They may appeal to a wide range of Linux users, but do they appeal to all Linux users. If your site was available in Spanish or Portuguese (I presume it isn't), you might find you had more Mandriva (primarly KDE) users (given the Conectiva heritage) - likewise if you had German content you might find you had more SUSE (again primarily KDE) users.

Ignoring all that, I don't see how having more users makes one system any more native than the other. To me, the whole thing smacks of measuring willies - just because you have the biggest willy, it doesn't mean that yours the willy.
