Good news for Mac and Linux users. CodeWeavers has developed a port of Chromium that’s easy to install and use. I just tried the MacOS version, and while the first run takes some time it runs pretty fast after that.

Contrary to the Wine method, this version does support https-enabled sites.

Please keep in mind that this is only a proof-of-concept to show how easy it is to port this code to a new platform; from their FAQ:

Q. Does Crossover Chromium update itself with security fixes like Google Chrome does?
A.¬†No, Chromium itself doesn’t have an autoupdater; that’s one of the difference between the open source Chromium and Google Chrome.
