Google Chrome is open source, and there's clearly still some work to be done on it. In this article Neil McAllister decided to take a peek under Chrome's hood and view it through the eyes of the developers who will improve and maintain it in the coming years. And it seems Google's open source browser has much to offer prospective hackers (provided they use Windows).

As it seems, this project will fade away, with low public appreciation - that's my view. Nothing is faster and more usable than Firefox. Also, not releasing open source product for Linux / Unix / Mac well sounds stupid - it looks like : we're gonna have to release a browser, just to invade the browser space, and fill the gap. First, release it for Windows, and then we will think of something for *x like OSes. No, I don't think that this project deserves attention....

Except maybe Opera ;)

I think you're embelishing a lot there.

It's not that they're not going to release an open source *nix port but more that the Windows BETA was released first. Personally I don't see a problem with this - particularly as teh Windows release is only a BETA (thus it's quite clear this project is far from finished)
If this doesn't fill your immediate requirements then how about you merge the features you like into your beloved Firefox.


As for my personal opinion on this project - well i'm yet to try this properly as it wouldn't install under WINE on my machine. I don't personally see it replacing Opera as my preferred browser but I welcome the choice ;)
