    Has anyone found something like Chrome on PPC? I know that Google Chrome came from Chromium, but are all of the versions for Intel?

    Nope

    No Chrome for PPC. Stainless if you have leopard is Chrome like (hence the name) in that tabs run as separate processes. Not sure if it has been updated recently ( I only run Tiger).

    After never hearing of 'Stainless', I thought I'd try it out, urns out it's absolutely awesome and I'm now using it as my main browser on my PowerBook! :)

    It's kind of a hassle to do, but Chrome does work under Virtual PC 7 running Windows XP on my G5. VP7 works pretty good with my 2ghz (dual core, not DP) machine. Netflix & Silverlight didn't work though, but I didn't mess around with it too much.
