CrossOver Chromium

Thanks to Ariya Hidayat for his post about CrossOver Chromium, a free linux port of Google Chrome (the official version from Google hasn't come out yet). As usual, it was ported using Wine and they have provided the application in several format (rpm, deb, and also sh for other Linux distro that doesn't use RPM or DEB). I used Slackware, so i choose the .sh format.

To install it, simply add execute permission and execute it:
chmod +x

The above screenshot is the example of this blog running on CrossOver Chromium. As you can see, it's not 100% perfect, as the status bar is floating like that. If you want better version, then i suggest you to wait for the official Linux version from Google.
