Chrome for Mac to come in a tad underweight…

I can’t wait for Google Chrome on Mac. Almost since day 1, it replaced Firefox as my main Windows browser and over the last couple of weeks each build release has inched closer and closer to perfection. Granted, I use perfection loosely, merely using it to describe a “finished”, stable product. While we can expect a Chrome 4 for Mac of some sort in the next couple of weeks, it will be far from perfect, finished, or full featured. Features such as bookmark manager, mutli-touch gestures, gears, app mode, task manager, and several more have been pushed back to Chrome Milestone 5. Some features such as Gears are being completely left out with Google instead favoring HTML5 tools and services. Am I harping on Chrome? Maybe a little. While I use it on my Mac now and enjoy it thoroughly, many people will find the missing features a sore point and reason to wait for the next major release. I’ll be honest, most of the features mentioned above aren’t that big of a deal to me. Still, after looking at everything Chrome for Mac won’t do out of the box means it is an extremely bare bones browser in the beginning. What do you think: Should Google have waited and added a few more features, sacrificing several more weeks or months delay? Or is it Chrome for Mac FTW!! — ?
