  1. Google has just released developer preview versions of its Chrome browser for the Mac OS X and Linux platforms, nine months after the software made its debut on Windows. However, given their current \'rough around the edges\' status, the company is naturally warning most users to avoid downloading, “unless of course you are a developer or take great pleasure in incomplete, unpredictable, and potentially crashing software.”

    I remember reading an article where Google claimed the lack of a standardized UI in Linux has been a huge hurdle in the development of Chrome for Linux.

    If you look at Chrome for Windows though, I think that statement is very entertaining: They don't follow the conventional Windows UI *at all*, putting UI controls where they don't typically go, removing the title bar and file menu in favor of that "empty space" at the top... Just kind of funny to me. :)
