Don't bother with this virtualization version of Chromium. Native Mac OS X versions are available here: http://www.manu-j.com/blog/download-updated-native-google-chrome-for-mac-os-x/230/

I don't know why MacUpdate doesn't have this listed.

So, Chrome is Chromium, or what? Your URL points to Chrome for Mac, not Chromium.

I gather "proof of concept" means, you built it. Yea for you. I think the question comes up, since you list it here, Codeweavers, is ... does it happen to work? You know, start up? Browse the web?

Does not work on my MacBook Pro with 10.5.5

Crashes on "First time initial startup".

When I looked inside the package I see resources for X11, and I do not have X11 installed on my machine. Maybe this is the problem? Rebooting did not help.

It's based on Wine so dependance on X11 would make sense. Odd that CodeWeavers wouldn't just use their own though...

Took several minutes to launch, during which my dual-core 2Ghz MBP was pegged. Didn't even take the time to create an icon beyond 32 pixels. Mouse behavior is strange - clearly something related to either X11 or Wine, but it's not using native tracking or acceleration profiles, which is very jarring. Command-tab does not work to leave Chromium. Overall, while this is a very polished but incomplete browser for Windows, it is both unpolished and incomplete in this CrossOver form.

Recommendation: Do not use this, and don't form any opinions about Chromium based on this.

I feel as though, I should explain my use of Google Chrome (Chromium for Windows), since I'm the first to review.

This is not the official Mac OS X version of Google Chrome, its the Windows version, only using WINE emulation to bring Google Chrome to Mac OS X.

At first, its says it needs to install.....I was trying to figure out what it was installing.....but found out it was WINE.

Google Chrome has alot of trouble loading some webpages like MacUpdate, CNN, and some others because of the lack thereof of a Windows version of Adobe Flash Player.

Use at your own risk. As the Windows version is still unstable, the Mac one I hope will be alot better.
