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+.

And what more can they do about it?

Actually devote some resources to it?

but it's not GNOME's fault either

To the extent that they have ignored it, it is.

There's nothing GNOME can do about it

Yes there is. They could try. Incompatible as it is with the web, at large, even Konqueror has fared better. Because the KDE guys do seem to care about their browser.

Can't be true, since Epiphany uses either Gecko or WebKit for rendering.

Incompatible as *Konqueror* is. Hello? *Of course* Epiphany has good compatibility with the web, at large. You are completely misinterpreting more of my posts than you realize. In fact, you are acting like a KDE fanatic in reverse gear.

This is Free software. We welcome new developers with open arms but we can't force people to work on something, you know. And unlike some other Gnome modules, no companies are interested in hiring people to work on Epiphany.

In any case, you may be interested to know that Epiphany has recently gained support for Javascript extensions with Seed: http://racarr.me/blag/?p=34
