    I notice it doesn't say anything about operating systems - but I seriously doubt Google would build something that doesn't run on all three of Windows, Mac and Linux. It may especially benefit us on Linux, with the sad state of crashing flash.
    Once you switch to alsa and use flash player 10 rc, crashes in firefox aren't a problem anymore.

    Only problem with flash are the grey boxes.

    But about this project, it does sound awesome. And I hope it will be available fast to all platforms that has wanting users. Being Windows, Mac etc. and both for Qt and GTK.

    Yeah I HOPE it's available for linux. Mac and Windows for sure, but Linux isn't necessarily a definitely. Google and Firefox are friends, correct? Meaning that more than likely Google and Linux are friends. Now we just have to wait for Google OS. I wouldn't doubt it's coming. As long as its open source I'm good!

    It's very likely that it will be cross-platform, and since it's OSS there may very well be a port.

    I think Google will realise the potential Linux market is massive, and anyway as its open source it could probable be easily ported to Linux. And if there is a Google OS (I doubt it, but before today I doubted a Google browser) it will likely be based on Linux and Google would want compatibility!

    Yeah, rub it in.

    It's not that I don't like Qt4. It's great in a KDE distro. I just don't want any of it on my Gnome setup.

    Well, since it is open source software, they will most likely release it for Linux too.
