    Well its a shame...that a comapny who uses Linux on huge scale..
    dont realease their software for Linux on their first launch.

    As far as i know status for many google apps is "Coming Soon"

    you can get Google Chrome working on Wine or PlayOnLinux (for instant)
    but that browser is really a waste for me. Firefox rulez

    Yeah, I use Firefox too, have been using Mozilla software for 15 years! (Remember Netscape Navigator?) I just asked because... well... I really want to use video chat...
    Has nobody gotten around to writing an appropriate plugin for the gmail video chat?

    I dunno, maybe. I got Ekiga to work, but the video quality is pretty crappy. It was better when I was running Windows.
