For more details on this beta release of Google Chrome for Mac, read on in the Google Mac blog or watch this video from one of our engineers, Mike Pinkerton:
Just as important, we've had quite a bit of help from the open sourcecommunity. More than 50 open source contributors have worked on Chromium and they've been especially helpful on delivering our Linux version of Google Chrome. For more details on the beta release of Google Chrome for Linux, check out the Chromium blog.If you're on a PC or a Linux machine, you can check out more than 300 extensions in the gallery, including a few cool, useful and cute extensions. Extensions aren't quite beta-quality on Mac yet, but you will be able to preview them on a developer channel soon. And if you're a web developer, you can learn more about writing extensions for Google Chrome on the Chromium blog.
The one thing that might have me using Chrome more are the extensions now available for the dev builds. flashbock is definitely needed in Chrome.
News:Are any of you Mac/Linux users thinking of giving this a download?
Oh yeah. I actually love Chrome. FF still rains king on my desktop, but when I am on my netbook in Win 7 I always use Chrome. I'm going to grab my netbook and install it under Ubuntu Netbook Remix now.
Hey bob have you upgraded Ubuntu to 9.10?
Yeah did the in place upgrade. Worked like a charm and UNR 9.10 looks super sleek.
I installed Chrome a couple of days back. I've only used it a couple of times though: The Adblock extensions aren't as nice as FF's yet. I like to unblock specific sites, like HH, where I don't find the ads to be intrusive or irrelevant. Also: There's no equivalent to the FireFTP extension. :(
64-bit Chrome with working Flash 10 (alpha) - on Kubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 (alpha1) w/KDE4.4 (beta1) desktop.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Great browser, splendid work by the developers ; too bad, however, that the Linux team didn't post a YouTube video like their Mac counterparts ! In any event, at the rate this is going, I'm soon going to have to give serious consideration to making Chromium my default browser on 64-bit Ubuntu Karmic. If only I could get my Delicious bookmarks to open in a sidepanel, as in Firefox !...
There was an updated beta version of Chrome in Google's Debian repo's today, bringing it from version 188.8.131.52-r33928 to 184.108.40.206-r34537. The unstable/testing version is currently at 4.0.266.0-r3399.
