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+.

You said that you would love to be able to use non-mozilla browser on Linux.

Have you tried Epiphany with webkit? IMO, too many people overlook Epiphany.

Because the WebKit backend is experimental. At the earliest it will become the supported backend in Gnome 2.28.
