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."

If you happen to fall into that category, here are the download links. Google says that, among other things, the new versions lack compatibility with Adobe's Flash Player plug-in, the ability to change privacy settings and default search provider, or even basic print functionality. It added that they will continue working on both platforms to come up with a "stable enough" beta version of the browser sometime soon.
