The Mac version of Google’s Chrome web browser has arrived as a beta. The search giant has deemed it stable enough for the general public’s consumption, but a few features are still under development. One notable feature missing is the bookmark manager.
I’ve tried it out. It’s every bit as snappy as the Windows version, and it looks great. The default theme matches Apple’s Cocoa UI, dispensing with the Windows version’s bright blue color, and you can change the theme to something more creative if you like that sort of thing.
The best thing, in my opinion: Chrome, no matter the OS, uses the same WebKit framework as Apple’s Safari browser, so Chrome isn’t going to burden designers with more testing.
