Apparently, Google Chrome Will Have Extensions by May. That’s great news for those of you on Windows – even if you’re not running Google Chrome as your default browser, it’s only getting more powerful (and a viable alternative to either Firefox or Internet Explorer).
However, Google Chrome has yet to ship for Mac OS X. There’s half-assed efforts that allow you to run Chrome through a virtual machine, but there’s no way I’d ever do that with any browser (nor would I recommend that course of action).
There’s a sign up page for the first Chrome beta, but look how long it took Google to port Picasa to Mac OS X? Some people have pointed me to Stainless, but I find its UI less-than-impressive. Not to say that Google Chrome for Windows would win any awards, but… the feature set is rather tough to beat.
Until then, I suppose I’ll stick with WebKit nightlies (in the hopes that they’ll adopt a few of the smarter features from Chrome at some point in the future). I asked my Twitter followers what they thought, and the responses were certainly mixed:
Are you using Google Chrome – or am I the only one who really wants to see it running on Mac OS X?
