Google After a long wait, Google has finally released the first official beta release of Google Chrome for Mac. This being a beta release, it is not yet entirely on par feature-wise with the Windows version, but in return Mac users get a browser that is very well integrated with Mac OS X. Update The Linux beta is out too! More here.

In linux fork a process is much more efficient than in windows. Unix and linux were developed oriented to process while windows always was oriented to threads.

Threads are important to some applications but use them to render multiple pages is not very smart. Google Chrome is showing this.
