Google has released the long-promised Mac and Linux versions of its Chromeweb browser.

The company said on Tuesday that both versions of Chrome were being releasedas \'beta\' versions. Google tends to keep the beta label on products it considersto still be under development.

Firstannouncedin 2008 and rumoured to beinthe final stages last month, the Mac and Linux versions were approached byGoogle as completely new projects, rather than ported copies of the Windowsbuild.

In a posting totheofficial company blog, Google product manager Brian Rakowski said thatoptimising performance was the focus on designing both of the new versions ofthe browser, though developers also made a point of tuning the visualpresentation on both browser to blend with the interface of their respectiveoperating systems.

\"We wanted Google Chrome to feel at home on the Mac, so we\'ve focused onuniting our clean, simple design with subtle animations and effects to create asnappy and satisfying browsing experience on OS X,\" wrote Rakowski.

\"Just like Google Chrome for Windows and Mac, we focused on speed, stabilityand security, but we also wanted a high-performance browser that integrated wellwith the Linux ecosystem.\"

Rakowski said that in addition to the Mac and Linux releases, the company wasalso releasing extensions for the Linux build which will be available alongsideplug-ins for the Windows browser. Plug-ins for the Mac browser are still underdevelopment.
