I'm not really in a hurry to get Chrome. It's nice and all for Windows, but Safari works just fine for me. When I need an additional browser I fire up Firefox. I don't see Chrome replacing Firefox any time soon, because I would still want the extras I have on Firefox, like Firebug. There's no need for 3 browsers on my Mac.
Oh, that looks cool. Do you have any screens to share?
EDIT: Never mind, found it..
Not concerned. Have used chrome and I was not overly impressed.
I'm actually looking forward to the release of Safari 4 now rather than Google Chrome. I will try Google Chrome once it comes out though.
May I make a suggestion about the Stainless website? The download, screencap, and dev links are kinda hard to read..
The more I use Safari 4, the more I'm liking it. Minus the lag on loading gifs.
The feature that I like about Chrome, that Apple should adopt is making the url bar the search bar as well.
I have no side to stand on this issue. Im just curious why its so difficult to port chrome to osx.
I don't believe Google is porting Chrome to OS X. I think that they are actually rebuilding it from the ground up to work on OS X, just with the same features as the Windows version. But i am not an expert on this.
No, they're definitely not doing that. Skia, their WebKit port, V8, etc... are all shared between OSs. It's just a large porting effort. Chrome's multi-process stuff (different from Stainless's) requires a lot of very OS-specific stuff, as does sandboxing, and of course all the UI parts need to have Cocoa versions written.
