Google Chrome for Linux and Mac

Tim Finin, 8:32am 5 June 2009

How’s this for truth in advertising. The Chromium blog announces beta versions of Google Chrome for MAC OS X and Linus, but warns people not to try them in a post Danger: Mac and Linux builds available.

“In order to get more feedback from developers, we have early developer channel versions of Google Chrome for Mac OS X and Linux, but whatever you do, please DON’T DOWNLOAD THEM! Unless of course you are a developer or take great pleasure in incomplete, unpredictable, and potentially crashing software. How incomplete? So incomplete that, among other things, you won’t yet be able to view YouTube videos, change your privacy settings, set your default search provider, or even print.”

Of course, they know that this will make trying them irresistible to some of us. If that includes you, go get the Mac or Linux version.

    This is the best piece of advertising ever. Not only does this clear Google from having any users complain about the software being horribly buggy, but it’s going to cause everyone in the universe to download it just to see how buggy it is. And once you get them to download it, some of them will get hooked, and there you go. Go Google!
