Google After a long wait, Google has finally released the first official beta release of Google Chrome for Mac. This being a beta release, it is not yet entirely on par feature-wise with the Windows version, but in return Mac users get a browser that is very well integrated with Mac OS X. Update The Linux beta is out too! More here.

What kind of web developer support does Chrome have? I use Safari's "Inspect Element" and Firefox's Plug-in "Web Developer" side by side to get different angles on my code, it would be nice to have a third point of view.

Not sure about Chrome, but with Epiphany, "Web Inspector" just sort of showed up during the transition from the old Gecko renderer to the more featureful Webkit. So maybe it's a feature of Webkit.

OK, ya it looks just like Safari's developer set so it's probably a Webkit thing. And it crashed within two minutes of using it. Nice.

In the Developer menu:
- View Source
- Developer Tools
- JavaScript Console
- Task Manager

And Developer Tools brings up a fancy-shmancy code inspector. No idea what it does, or how to use it, but it certainly looks pretty. ;)
