Quite sometime ago, I installed cxchromium from rpm available for mandriva at codeweavers. I must say the guys at codeweavers have done a fairly good job. Atleast satisfied the itch of many Linux users like me.
The browser does look very light, but it ain’t. With just one tab it runs two processes (must be a failover process) and not to forget the few wine processes it spawns. I guess spawn wouldn’t be a right word here because wine needs to be running for cxchrome to start.
The `faster loading of pages` as claimed by many, looks like illusion to me. Seems like the browsers caches more before it renders on the page.
I did face some issues with the port though, and googling tells me that the native version on windows has its share too.
Chrome is itself in beta and cxchromium isn’t a guaranteed port; it’s just for try out.
It would be interesting to see how `soon` Google would release the linux version.
