Google To Launch New Open Source Web Browser

Google's Chrome browser: Screenshots

re: Chrome

Of course in Debian it will be relabeled as MetallicWeasel or ShinyGopher or BrassRodent - depending on if it's Etch, Lenny or the yet to be released Sqooze.

Google still treats Linux as second class? I’m honestly surprised that we continuously see Google support Linux second. Google just announced “Chrome” on Labor Day stating a release for Windows and an “in the future” support for Linux and Mac. By all accounts, Windows is obviously the largest base, but why not wait just a little and do a simultaneous release? Heck, Google uses a ton of Linux on the desktop internally. Then I also have to remember, Linux already has a dominant penetration for non-Microsoft web browsers and already supports open standards… so maybe it’s just not needed - or is it? I think it’s too early to tell at the moment but Google is making its case with a compelling story.
