We here at Mac|Life like Firefox and Safari as much as the next guy. Still, we can't help but feel left out when some Window's using jerk walks by and purposely raves about how "AWESOME!" Google Chrome is. All we can do is look upon him like helpless little sea kittens, and just wish Google would show us Mac users some love. Well, Google has been listening, and it looks like Macs won't be Chrome-less much longer.
On Friday, Google announced that they would like to release a version of Chrome for Mac OS X and Linux by the end of the first half of the year. Google also blessed Windows users with a new version of Chrome that will bring the most requested feature to Chrome, extensions.
Currently, the Mac and Linux versions are basic test shells that can show most web pages, but it is still in its raw stages. Brian Rakowski, Google Chrome's product manager, said "That team now is able to 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 all goes according to Google's plot to take over the internet browsing world, a fancy Chrome should be available before the end of June. For those of you who can't wait that long, Google is letting you download the Mac test shell and track Google Chrome's progress for Macs.
