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+.

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?

Sorry, didn't mean to sound harsh, was just pointing out that QT 4.5 is going to be licensed under the LGPL. Therefore, it's not expensive anymore. I'm not Pro QT, I'm Pro GNOME, just interested in having the most accurate info possible out there.

Of course you can hear about benefits of Qt - you just won't see what Nokia is up to as far as their products (phones) go immediately.

If anything, Qt development is moving to a more open model with LGPL license and other future changes to the development flow (acceptance of outside contributions without copyright assignment etc).

So, what about all those years we were told that QT was more Free because it was GPL instead of LGPL? I think the move is good. But isn't there a fair amount of crow to be eaten on the QT side? I'd like to observe the eating. Assuming that's not under NDA, too.
