Google Chrome for Mac hits beta

Dec 8, 2009 - 5 Comments

google chrome beta mac Google Chrome is out in beta for Mac OS X and although it’s relatively barebones, it seems pretty stable and certainly is fast. I still prefer Safari overall but I am glad Google Chrome is finally on the Mac platform in a usable release. Google also announced their public Chrome Extensions set today, which was previously closed off just to developers. The Gmail extension is a nice addition but I’m really hoping for something like Firebug for Chrome so that I can finally ditch my Firefox bloatware, and then I’ll be able to just run Safari and Chrome… one can dream!

    I’ve been using the pre-beta and now prefer Chrome over Safari most of the time. I’m looking forward to seeing some of the stability issues resolved in beta. Thanks G.
