anyone heard of any possible developments for google letting linux users adopt chrome, i have it on my vista desktop and i absolutely love it. i think it's based on linux like they're android OS that they use in smart phones and no i'm not gonna run it through wine (though considered it)

Chrome is based on an opensource browser (chromium i think it's called). So keep an eye on that.

Google claims to be hard at work on a linux version of chrome....


and according to this ( http://www.osnews.com/story/20980/Linux_Version_of_Chrome_To_Use_Gtk_ ) there gonna make a native GTK app instead of some crappy google earth/picasa half windows thing.

There are daily builds of chromium available to test for Ubuntu. It is very unstable though, it may work one day, not work at all another day and crash on your favorite site the third. Do not run as a production browser.

It is installable through launchpad.net:
Check out: https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/ppa
also check: https://launchpad.net/chromium-project and http://code.google.com/chromium/

And.... If you want to see and/or try the hourly builds for Linux, here's the constantly updated list... (Scroll to the bottom of the list for the current release)


There is a CHANGELOG file for each release with info on the release.

Enjoy :)
