Google's Chrome browser was released for Windows last year, but they are now finally pushing out development builds of this unique web browser for Linux and Mac OS X. Linux users could previously try out the rough equivalent of Chrome via Google's open-source Chromium project, but this is the first time they are releasing a development version of the official Chrome web-browser for Linux.
As is mentioned in the Chromium blog post
, it's highly encouraged that those trying out Google Chrome for Linux are experienced users or developers, as these new platform versions are not yet stable enough for most users. Google Chrome for Linux can be downloaded via their early access release channel
Besides being potentially buggy, Google Chrome for Linux currently lacks features like changing privacy settings, printing a web page, changing the default search provider, or even playing YouTube videos.
