Google Chrome for Mac is now in public beta Google has announced the public launch of Google Chrome for Macs today, with the first beta of the browser now available.
The Windows version was released last year and the Mac version was slated for May of this year but hit delays even prompting Google co-founder Sergey Brin to call Chrome's absence on the Mac as an "embarrassment."

The beta works on Macs with Intel processors only, and will require OS X 10.5 or higher.

"We've been working hard to deliver a first-class browser for the Mac it took longer than we expected, but we hope the wait was worth it!" says Google. "We wanted Google Chrome to feel at home on the Mac, so we've focused on uniting our clean, simple design with subtle animations and effects to create a snappy and satisfying browsing experience on OS X. As you might expect, the speed of Google Chrome for Mac is something we're very proud of. If you have a Mac, try installing the beta and see how fast it launches there's hardly even time for the icon in the dock to bounce!"

I think I'll stick to Firefox after trying it on Windows last year.
