Early Chrome for Mac build
Google has begun distributing a very early build of Chrome for the Mac. The company warns that the browser -- still in developer channels -- remains very unstable, and may exhibit behaviors such as crashes. The software is moreover missing many basic features, such as the ability to print, change privacy settings or even load Flash videos from sites like YouTube.
The primary purpose of the release is said to be feedback, as a completed Mac version is not expected until later this year. An early Linux port of the software is newly available as well. The most advanced copy remains the Windows edition, which exists in final as well as beta and developer distributions.
