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+.

From Mangament point of view, I bleive that Google made a big mistake. Instead of focusing on value adding development they will spend their effort maintaining multiple version of the GUI.

Multi OS C++ development is a reallity, and we have many successful software projects running on multuiple operating systems. Instead of the need to maintain multiple versions of the GUI, they should have gone with either Qt or WxWidgets, though Qt is my prefered API.
