CrossOver Chromium is a Mac and Linux port of the open source Chromium web browser. CrossOver Chromium is available for download from CodeWeavers, free of charge.

http://www.codeweavers.com/services/ports/chromium/

Q. What is Chromium?

A. Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web. The Chromium codebase is the basis for Google’s Chrome browser.

Q. Are there native Linux and Mac versions of Chromium available?

A. Not yet. Google has announced plans to support native Mac and Linux versions of Chromium, but they have yet to be released. CrossOver Chromium, however, runs the Windows version of Chromium natively on both Mac and Linux.

Q. Should I run CrossOver Chromium as my main browser?

A. Absolutely not! This is just a proof of concept, for fun, and to showcase what Wine can do. Chromium itself is just beginning. As the Chromium project progresses, they will be providing more compelling support for Mac OS and Linux, particularly with process security and memory management. Those future versions from Chromium will be better suited for daily use than this version.

shouldnt be too long... although they have promised some sort of iPhone browser. or theres rumours that alude to that promise in the future tongue hopefully that does happen. i really do not see why Opera doesnt port Presto to the iPhone.. it would be a great addition to the other amazing things you can do with a jailbroken phone. It would also encourage a lot of people to jailbreak if that happened. Safari for iphone is getting on my nerves a litttle....

Apple's bad with blocking appstore apps neutral
Opera should be on cydia if apple doesn't let them in the appstore lol

And yeah, safari is getting old... and the only alternative (myfox), is VERY buggy, even in version 2
