We finally get the Chrome beta for Mac. It only took a year and we wonder how many years the browser will be in beta. Our money is on two. Apple acquires Lala for an undisclosed amount of money. Is iTunes streaming is on the horizon? Plus, a developer gets banned from the App Store because of some review shenanigans.
Plus, we answer your hard-hitting Twitter and Facebook questions! Okay, they weren't that hard-hitting.
You may have heard around the Internet rumor mill that Google is
currently hosting a Chrome OS event where journalists and bloggers
alike were invited to preview the brand new operating system from
everyone's favorite search provider. Well, we're not there, but
Gizmodo is! We'll provide you with some key highlights from the event
as time progresses. Stay tuned! And check back at the end of the day
for all the relevant Apple/Google Chrome OS information.
CNET reports that the long-awaited Chrome browser from Google will be released into beta in early
December. The information came from a post in Google’s online discussion group
for developers of extensions to Chrome.
If you have a tolerance for a buggy build of a browser that crashes or freezes regularly, you can have Google Chrome on your Mac. If you want a stable, proper release, unfortunately you'll need a PC (or run Parallels, ugh). For everyday users, there's been little Mac love. That's soon to change.
No matter how happy you are with your current Web browser, chances are
you’ve wondered if another browser would make your Web wanderings
faster, easier, or at least a little more festive. We speculate about
that too (probably far too often), so we decided to run some tests,
compare features and figure out which browser currently rules the Web.
