Google Launches Chrome for Mac

Google Chrome macThe day has finally come. As we were expecting, Google has just released Chrome for Mac, and can now be downloaded by Mac OS X 10.5 or later users.

If you’re anything like us, you’ve been anxiously waiting the chance to get your hands on the new browser since last year’s release of the Windows version.

Of course, Google Chrome for Mac is just a BETA release, and as we’ve previously reported, you won’t be able to use applications like Gmail that run on Google Gears, but you can take advantage of other Chrome improvements such as speed and Google search right from the address bar.

After you first install Chrome on your Mac, you can optionally import your Safari or Firefox settings, which means your bookmarks and certain preferences can carry over from your existing favorite browser. Given that Google Chrome Extensions should launch any day, you might not even have to live without your favorite add-ons for very long.
