    Will it work? I really want to try out Chrome and since it's not coming to Mac as quickly as I expected. I can't seem to find it under the list of applications that CrossOver officially supports. Has anyone tried it yet?

    It works great on Windows but not worth it through CrossOver.

    I love chrome! I hope it comes to the mac soon. It'll become my default browser in a heart beat. Especially if it somehow syncs bookmarks with Safari so I can sync my bookmarks through mobile me.

    Yea, after hearing you guys complain about speed (which is Chrome's forte to say the least) I will probably setup a VM with XP for my programming/web design needs and see how fast Chrome runs from there. Worse case I delete the app and keep on rocking with XP SP3 for my purposes until Windows 7 comes rolling along. Thanks for the input!

    I have to use a Dell PC at work and Google Chrome is the only browser I will use anymore. I was using Safari for Windows up until Chrome came out... and I haven't looked back since.

    Seems more-or-less like Google Chrome worked when I tried it under Windows XP. I'm not sure anyone anywhere is positioning Chromium/Chrome for prime time yet.
