Google Chrome for Linux and Mac with CrossOver Chromium

Two weeks ago i have posted a tutorial on how to make Google Chrome run on Linux using wine. That gave Linux users the option to test the browser without having to go to a Windows machine, but it was not perfect as it lacked HTTPS support.

CrossOver packaged for both Linux and Mac the browser and it supports HTTPS. Check it out at: http://www.codeweavers.com/services/ports/chromium/

Note that this package does NOT play flash files. In order to get flash pages to play you just have to go to http://www.adobe.com and install the flash player as if you were running windows.

I’m running the following version, which I downloaded today for CentOS. I’m having troubles with all https websites
