Google Summer of Code 2009 and Wine

,----[ Quote ]
| It's time for another round of Google's Summer of Code (SoC). The SoC is an 
| effort that first started in 2005 as an effort to get students involved in 
| open source code development.  


Pre-Alpha Chromium Browser Now Available

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week I found an Ubuntu package repository for the Chromium browser, the 
| open source project behind Google’s Chrome browser. I didn’t get excited 
| until I saw this post, which shows that the packages do contain a working web 
| browser!   



Linux Version of Chrome To Use Gtk+

| A major complaint about Google's Chrome web browser has been that so far, it
| is still not available on anything other than Windows. Google promised to
| deliver Chrome to Mac OS X and Linux as well, but as it turns out, this is a
| little harder than they anticipated, Ben Goodger, Google's Chrome interface
| lead, has explained in an email. It has also been revealed what toolkit the
| Linux version of Chrome will use: Gtk+.


Google readying Mac, Linux versions of Chrome 2.0

| Google has a swathe of new functionality ready for Chrome 2.0, along with Mac
| and Linux support. Here's what's inside.


Google Chrome on GNU/Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| I have been waiting to test Google Chrome on GNU/Linux from the moment I
| heard about its release. But the initial release only had a version for
| Windows. They promised to release versions for Mac OS X and GNU/Linux as soon
| as they port the code. I tried to compile the code following the instructions
| on the wiki, but all I got was a binary that would run all the unit tests.


Firefox, Chrome and IE Talk Add-ons

| According to Crockford, the biggest threat to openness is mobile. "Out of
| desperation they're [mobile] looking at supporting the Web, but it looks like
| they're trying to keep it closed. Is it going to turn out that way?" he
| asked.


playing with chrome on linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Soon after they announced, I'd been hoping to take Google Chrome for a test
| drive. The comic book laid out a lot of interesting things, my favorite being
| the discussion of separate processes leading to detachable (and "retachable")
| browser tabs, something I have been touting for years as a long term Galeon
| user. My big problem though? I run Linux, and Google has so far left Linux
| support on the back burner. Still, I figured that someone had probably made a
| Linux build available by now, so inspired by John McCain's speech on TV
| tonight, I set about seeing if I could get it set up.


A Linux users' guide to Google Chrome

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, I’ll show you how to obtain and build the Linux source. A heads up:
| you won’t be Chroming after this, Google haven’t finished porting it to Linux
| and I’m certainly not smarter than the Google engineers and have no magic
| fix.


Chromium - Open Source Chrome

,----[ Quote ]
| As you might have noticed from our Google Chrome coverage, we're pretty
| excited about the potential -- even if it hasn't lived up to everyone's
| expectations. Much of that potential is tied-up in the architecture used to
| create Chome. As Google continued to reiterate during yesterday's webcast,
| Chrome is open source.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
