Most won't care about this, but I know a few who definitely will...

Google have finally released beta builds of Google Chrome for Linux and Mac. I've been stuck using the dev version for some months now, so I'm really pleased to see this step towards a full release on *NIX OSes.

Oh, I thought you wrote "Beata" :p 'Cause that's my name.

I've had Chrome for at least two months. I'm a Ubuntu user, and I didn't use it in Wine.

Are you using Chromium or google-chrome-unstable? I've enjoyed a slow upgrade path from Crossover Chromium (WINE), Chromium nightlies, Chrome dev and now Chrome Beta.

The best thing I've noticed now (although it may not be that new a feature) is that printing has started to work.
