Google Chrome for Mac and Linux

Finally Google Chrome browser is out for Mac and Linux on Thursday, June 04, 2009 but it the browser is in its developer preview version. It’s not ready to use as it is not complete yet.

"In order to get more feedback from developers, we have early developer channel versions of Google Chrome for Mac OS X and Linux, but whatever you do, please DON'T DOWNLOAD THEM," Google product managers Mike Smith and Karen Grunberg said in a blog post, evidently trying to employ a little reverse psychology. "Unless of course you are a developer or take great pleasure in incomplete, unpredictable, and potentially crashing software."

Google's open-source browser has been a Windows-only product, and some Mac and Linux users have been clamoring for their own version. Google coders have been working to rebuild some Chrome components, such as its graphical interface and its sandbox that isolates different processes from each other, to move beyond just Windows operating system.

Google offers three versions of Chrome: stable, beta, and developer preview.
