Google Gets Chrome Ready For Mac, Linux

Filed under

Software

Google has released a pre-beta version of Chrome 2.0 that takes the Web browser closer to its eventual support of Mac OS X and Linux.

Google on Thursday released the pre-beta, officially called 2.0.156.1, to its Dev Channel, which is where developers get a chance to take a look at possibly new features.

One change in the latest release that's sure to end up in the final version is a shift to the HTTP network protocol from the WinHTTP library on Windows. The move establishes a common code that will be a part of the Mac and Linux versions of Chrome. Google has not said when the versions would be released, but has said it's a top priority.

Mac and Linux support is the most requested feature in the Chrome update.

Too much

It says:

"As of the end of the 2008, Chrome accounted for 1% of the browser market, according to Net Applications. Microsoft's Internet Explorer accounted for 78%; Mozilla's Firefox, 21%; and Apple's Safari, nearly 8%."

Well, if I'm not mistaken, that sums up to 108%. What they meant is IE accounted for 68%.
