Google Chrome on Linux

Before I switched to Ubuntu, I had gotten kinda sorta used to using Google Chrome. I was using three browsers side-by-side. IE 7, Firefox 3 and Chrome.

I have keep hoping to find Chrome for Linux on the Google site, however it keeps telling me that it’s only for XP and Vista.


Having said that, it makes me ask this question. Why has Google not brought out a version for Linux? Google isn’t short on Linux expertise, then why only target Microsoft Platform.

Does Google feel that Linux is not mature enough, unified (in the sense of distributions and code base) enough to be worth the trouble to develop and maintain?

What is it?


Google, Google, Google

We remember when Google launched for the general public. We heard it from our friends, “check this search engine out, it’s really cool, very fast, you’ll love it!” I remember when I was relying on MSN Search, and Yahoo Search, and Altavista, and Ask Jeeves, and a plethora of other search engines. Google was really refreshing.

Over time, Google search results have become almost a standard format for all search engines. Everyone wants to be as fast as Google is, and give better results than Google does. Google launched Ad-Words and Ad-Sense, two really effective revenue generating/sharing tools that have evolved over time.

Google didn’t say enough is enough, they pushed the products out. Gmail, we all wanted it, at a time of 1MB storage on Hotmail, we had an email service that gave us 1GB storage, gave us Labels, and gave us Conversation Threads. Again, it was simple, and lightning Fast. Then Google launched Google Talk.

Then Google launched Google Docs, and after launching a great number of applications, we got Google Chrome.

My main questions is.

When will I be able to download the ISO for Google GoOS (Google Operation System) from the Google Apps site?
