CrossOver Chromium – Open source browser for Linux and OS X

CodeWeavers, the main sponsor of the Wine Project, has published an open-source web browser, CrossOver Chromium that aims a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web. The Chromium codebase is the basis for Google’s Chrome browser.

CrossOver Chromium is a Mac and Linux port of the open source Chromium web browser and it does not require a Windows installation to run.

At the same time, CrossOver Chromium is not designed to replace your current browser. This is just a proof of concept, for fun, and to showcase what Wine can do. Chromium itself is just beginning.

As the Chromium project progresses, they will be providing more compelling support for Mac OS and Linux, particularly with process security and memory management. Those future versions from Chromium will be better suited for daily use than this version.

CrossOver Chromium is a free application. You can download for Mac OS X (10.4 or higher with Intel) or for Ubuntu and Debian (32-bit and 64-bit), Red Hat, Mandriva, Suse and other Linux distributions.(via-incubaweb)
