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+.

Yet... some companies do the exact opposite. Nokia for example.

Because they bought out a competing toolkit for a song, and then put out some encouraging press releases to appease the bought up natives? Where are the products?

You can't really expect the products to come out this quickly after they purchased Trolltech, and public discussion about technical details is prevented by NDAs.

Wow. I have one guy on one side hammering me about how QT is going LGPL and another guy on the other side hammering me about how we can't see the wonderful benefits of QT due to NDA agreements. Fantastic community. How can I join? Is there an NDA involved?
