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+.

Member since:

Google Earth is made with Qt. Why did they choose Qt and not GTK+?

Perhaps it is because they can make sane choice ;)

Are the developers that create Google Earth more familiar with Qt and/or C++?

That's certainly possible, but I think the reverse it true here, i.e. the lead developer of Chrome, who also happens to be the main UI developer, is more familiar with GTK+.
