So what's the hold up? Well, no word yet on the Linux version, but a top-secret source tells me things aren't going so well over in the Mac division at Google HQ. Some of the killer features of the Windows version of Chrome, such as the "omnibar" and the new tab page, had to be ditched entirely because they were just "too hard" to implement on the Mac platform. Despite these setbacks, Google's Mac engineers are determined to make Google Chrome the best it can be and are diligently working around the clock to bring the cloud computing operating system of the future to the Macintosh.
I managed to score an exclusive sneak preview of the current beta of Google Chrome for Mac. My source warned me it was a work-in-progress and that there are still some bugs to be worked out. Boy, he wasn't kidding. Design-wise, Google Chrome for Mac is going in a completely new direction from Google Chrome for Windows. All I've got to say is, Google is definitely "thinking different" when it comes to the modern browser. Some exclusive screenshots of the yet-to-be-released browser after the jump.
