Chrome was initially released for Windows back in September last year, and at that time Google promised a Mac and Linux version later.

Two weeks later, we saw a Mac and Linux port of the open-source browser project, Chromium (which powers Google Chrome). But that still was an unofficial release. Since then Google worked on an official version version of Chrome for Mac OS X and Linux.

The current Google Chrome release for Mac OS X and Linux is still very unstable and have quite a few missing security features and options, which of course will be fixed in the coming builds.

Mac and Linux users who were eager to get Chrome for their OS could definitely give this a try and help Google improve this browser with your feedback.
