Google has made early developer versions of Google Chrome for Mac OS X and Linux available, but warns that the releases are incomplete and unstable. Currently there is erratic support for bookmarks and bookmark management, privacy settings, embedded Flash, search provider settings and printing. Google says it has released these versions to get more feedback from developers and get more bug reports to assist them in producing a stable version.

Various development builds of Chromium, the open source base on which Chrome is built, have been made available in the past for both Mac OS X and Linux, but this is the first Google release in any form of its Chrome build of the code. Despite the lack of features, first testing of the new releases shows Chrome is already a snappy performer with pages rendering well.

The developer build of Chrome for Mac OS X is available to download and instructions on how to install the Linux version are available.
