“73,804 lines of Mac-specific code and 29 developer builds later, we’re excited to finally release Google Chrome for Mac in beta,” so sayeth John Grabowski and Mike Pinkerton via the Official Google Mac Blog. “We took a hefty dose of goodness from the Windows version to build a fast, polished browser for Mac — with features such as the Omnibox (where you can both search and type in addresses), themes from artists, and most importantly, speed.”
MacDailyNews Take: “Hefty dose of goodness from the Windows version?” Sounds like Word 6. Yuck.
“We also took great care to make Google Chrome a native application for Mac,” Grabowski and Pinkerton report. “For example, we integrated the Keychain into Google Chrome for Mac, and incorporated Mac-style animations when you open the Bookmarks bar.”
