News in brief: Google browser goes multiplatform with beta launch
The wait is over: Google has finally brought out a version of its Chrome browser for Mac and Linux operating systems.
The beta browsers, announced yesterday, are a version of Chrome that had previously been available only as a developer preview.
The Mac and Linux Chrome browsers are expected to graduate to the next level of maturity, "stable", on 12 January.
