After months of speculation and angst, Google’s finally releasing a version of its much ballyhooed Web browser, Chome, for Macs.
That’s right, you’ve now got another browser to try out.
According to its development team, who only give their first names on the Chrome Web site, by the way, Chrome for Mac took:
- 73,804 lines of Mac-specific code written
- 29 developer builds
- 1,177 Mac-specific bugs fixed
- 12 external committers and bug editors to the Google Chrome for Mac code base, 48 external code contributors
- 64 Mac Minis doing continuous builds and tests
- 8,760 cups of soft drinks and coffee consumed
- 4,380 frosted mini-wheats eaten.
I’m not sure I believe the mini-wheats stat. Anybody who writes code knows that a project like this takes at least 10,000 of the little buggers.
