Google Chrome first official beta is now available on OSX, however only for Intel macs : there will probably never be a ppc port, since the best part of chrome (the javascript engine) is built for the intel instruction set, not the PPC instruction set. porting the javascript engine is a huge undertaking

It is really deceiving, as all G4 (and G5) would have been able to run Chrome : users reported it being even more optimized (memory and GPU usage) than Safari 4.
