    yeah, I downloaded it to my windows partiton and thought it was okay, Im not using it for OS X for a couple of reasons, even if it coems out for Mac

    For one the multitouch on my MBP wouldn't work and also because google knows enough about me without knowing all of my web activity. I still think google is trying to take over the world. lol

    That and for Webkit, you can use Safari Plugins like Safari Adblock and Glims :O

    Yeah, I think this was a mistake for google, I mean only tech people will probibly download it, and with amost al independent browser (eg: not IE7 or Safari) users using Firefoz it is kind of pointless.

    Firefox is already pen source and has many more plugins and its just one more platform web developers will have to taylor to, and if not enough people us it its pointless.
