Google has finally released a packaged version of its Chrome browser for the Mac. Of course, it’s been possible for some time to download nightly builds of Chrome’s open source foundation, Chromium, but this is the first time that Chrome itself has been available. Ars Technica calls this release a developer preview although that particular language is absent from the “About” window where it is identified simply as build 184.108.40.206. I haven’t encountered any problems so far in my limited testing.
