That would be somewhat ironic, since according to Reuters: *** QUOTE *** "We have borrowed good ideas from others," Google Vice President of Product Management Sindar Pichai said. "Our goal here was to bring our point of view, but do it in a very open way." Because Chrome relies on Apple's open-source WebKit software for rendering Web pages, it can run any application that runs on Apple's Safari Web browser, Pichai said. "If you are a Webmaster, and your site works in Apple Safari then it will work very well in Google Chrome," he said. *** END QUOTE *** And Safari is based on KDE's Konquerer (which already runs on FreeBSD), so with a FreeBSD version of Chrome, you would essentially have Konquerer ported to Apple, ported to Microsoft, ported to Linux, ported back to FreeBSD.... Granted, improvements are made along the way... (but losses probably occur as well). _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
