Chrome coming to the Mac in first half of 2009CNet News.com reports that Google's Chrome Web browser (/operating system) is coming to a Mac near you by this summer. An interview with Chrome product manager Brian Radowski provides some insight on the development of Chrome for Mac.

[The first half of 2009] is what we're hoping for... Those two efforts proceeding in parallel.  They're at the same level of progress.

Radowski notes that the Mac version is currently a basic "test shell" that can display Web sites but not much else.

[It can] render most Web pages pretty well... But in terms of the user experience, it's very basic.  We have not spent any time building out features.  We're still iterating on making it stable and getting the architecture right.

If you just can't wait, you can install the Mac test shell and keep tabs on Google's Chrome for Mac page for progress.

  • And my linux version???

    Chrome is awesome!!! I used in my house as the primary browser until I made the switch to Ubuntu, and I had to go back to Firefox 3, even without the 3.1 extensions of the windows beta.

    I hope we can have also an early version of this great browser for the bad guys of the dark side.
