 You must run windows. (Not being snarky, but that is the only place chrome
runs.. no mac, no linux.)

Android is webkit for a very simple reason - its embeddable. Its small, it
has a decent separation of display (java, on android) and core engine (C)
and in general works small.

Chrome .. doesn't. (By design, in fact, its a memory hog.) So I can't speak
for google, but I can say its -very- unlikely, for a lot of reasons.

 You either run chromium (a different beast, and as far as I know they have
made no actual releases) or you run under an emulator/translator such as
wine.

Or can you point me to the chrome linux download page? I'm all ears, I'd
love to try it. :)

 Chrome uses a one-process-per-window model that trades stability/security
for memory use and efficiency. That is fine on a desktop with multiple gigs
of ram, not so good on an embedded device.

Thank you,
