Sergey Brin: Chrome for Mac still unstable

As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. If that's true, Google's Chrome Web browser for Mac should be great.

As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. If that's true, Google's Chrome Web browser for Mac should be great.

The wait will have to go on a bit longer, says Google co-founder Sergey Brin, who made a surprise visit to the Web 2.0 Summit and took the question about the browser from an attendee. Actually, there is an early developer version that anyone can use (Sergey says he's using it) but he warns that it's still somewhat unstable.

There are a lot of things that I'm looking forward to in Chrome for Mac, particularly a stability feature that keeps other browser tabs humming in case there's a hang-up in one of them. Sergey says he's suffering along with us without Chrome for Mac. It's been 13 months since the Windows release and he - and I - would have hoped to at least have had a beta version.

I could download the developer's version but why would I want to be frustrated by an unstable experience when I can just wait a while longer for at least a beta version.
