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+.

If you read some of the reviews of KDE 4 on Windows, they will echo these same criticisms; that it just plain feels weird compared to a native Windows app.


That's KDE apps and not Qt. Funny how I develop commercial Qt apps primarily on Windows and have never heard a single complaint about how they "feel weird".

It's especially hilarious that Google is harping on about native look and feel when Chrome looks anything but like a normal windows app (does that even exist these days?). Let's face it, when even microsoft has half a dozen different visual styles for their apps on windows (compare Notepad, MSN messenger, MS Office, Expression studio, Songsmith, etc etc) then there really isn't a "native" look. Every app does their own thing, and Qt apps look a hell of a lot more "standard" than just about everything else.
