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?

michaeldolan.com: 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.
