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+.

Here's a picture of QT4 apps in Windows XP with the so-called "native" theme.

Nuff said. They may have bindings for some of the host-system's technologies, but they haven't quite figured out the bindings for its UI-guidelines. I know that such things don't matter to the Linux fandom, but the comfort factor is an important thing to mainstream users.

Yup, looks pretty much like it does under X11, but at least it looks better than a QT app on the Mac:)

That's KDE, not plain Qt.

So let's look at Google earth then: http://www.softpedia.com/progScreenshots/Google-Earth-Screenshot-23...

Looks plenty "native" to me. A lot more "native" than something like MSN messenger or MS Office, that's for sure. So don't pretend like something that looks a bit different is actually a problem. Everything looks different on windows.
