Chroimum, the open-source code that powers the Google Chrome
web-browser, is now available to Linux (and Mac OS) X users in a binary package. Though this support isn't coming natively, but instead CodeWeavers (the company behind CrossOver Office
and CrossOver Games
) is using WINE
. This Chromium support for Google has come about in the last couple of days, as is detailed on the CodeWeavers blog
. Additional information and free download links are available from the press release
and FAQ page
. One side effect of this Chromium+WINE work is that they've written HTTPS support within the winhttp DLL for WINE.
