Google Chrome reach beta on Linux

Google Chrome is go for beta on #Linux! Thanks to the many Chromium and WebKit developers who helped make Google Chrome a lean, mean browsing machine. Here are a few fun facts from us on the Google Chrome for #Linux team:

  • 60,000 lines of #Linux-specific code written,
  • 23 developer builds,
  • 2,713 #Linux-specific bugs fixed,
  • 12 external committers and bug editors to the Google Chrome for #Linux code base,
  • 48 external code contributors.

Note in the URL the usage of w00t that is used to express joy, particularly that felt during success or victory.

A lot of people were already using Google Chrome DEV build on #Linux (including me with a great stability even in 64 bits), the BETA state means even greater stabilities.
