Google Reforms Chrome for Snow Leopard

“Chrome shows the gradually maturing state of the Mac OS X version of the browser. ”

Google released an update for Chrome to fix compatibility problems with Snow Leopard, which along with other fixes shows the gradually maturing state of the Mac OS X version of the browser.
