Nice features, the resizing option works very well. The option was also introduced in Windows 7.

<< The Chromium Blog will continue to live on, but will shift its focus to things that are particularly relevant to the developer community. >>

Also, in the new Chrome beta version...

- form autofill
- full page zoom and autoscroll
- a new way to drag tabs out to get a side-by-side view of two pages

I know your more interested in the Mac version, but there is a development version for Linux out there, I posted it in another thread, but it's morerelated to this one.

I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 and it doesn't display anything :(Some people seem to have it running in earlier versions though.

For me, I get the chrome of the browser, the menus drop down, nothing seems to work other than New window and Exit. The omnibox also seems to be working.>>

Yes, I saw that post, and I wondered if it could be compiled on Unix based systems (Including OS X) but, unfortunately, it can't.

Is the beta like version 2.0b? Or what version is it compared to stable Google Chrome 1.0.154.48 I use today?
