Chrome has replaced Firefox as my default browser because it’s FAST, and today Google has finally released the beta version for Mac users. I’ve been using the developer’s preview for a while now and it’s been very good. Note: this new beta is still missing bookmark sync found on the Windows versionHere are a few fun facts from us on the Google Chrome for Mac team:
73,804 lines of Mac-specific code written
29 developer builds
1,177 Mac-specific bugs fixed
12 external committers and bug editors to the Google Chrome for Mac code base, 48 external code contributors
64 Mac Minis doing continuous builds and tests
8,760 cups of soft drinks and coffee consumed
4,380 frosted mini-wheats eaten

Six months later… Google Chrome has become my default browser. I usually have 2 Chrome windows of about 10-15 tabs on each. There’s still the occasionally sudden shutdown but it’s way faster and more stable than Firefox 3.6.x.
Bring on FF 4.x?
