Google on Tuesday released beta versions of its Chrome browser for Mac and Linux.

The company also unveiled extensions in Chrome for Windows and Linux.

“It took longer than we expected, but we hope the wait was worth it,” Brian Rakowski, Google product manager, wrote in a blog post.

Google unveiled Chrome in September 2008, but only for Windows. Rough versions of Chrome for Mac and Linux were released in June, but they did not include Flash support, and did not allow users to print, manage bookmarks, or alter privacy settings.

That took 73,804 lines of Mac-specific code and 29 developer builds, Google said.

“We also took great care to make Google Chrome a native application for Mac. For example, we integrated the Keychain into Google Chrome for Mac, and incorporated Mac-style animations when you open the Bookmarks bar,” they said.

You can use JavaScript code to redirect user to a page you want. For instance, when a user tries points his/her address bar to http://mywebsite.com, you can have that page automatically redirected to http://www.mywebsite.com using only one line of JavaScript code!

All you need to do is to paste the following code in the <head> section of your html page:

<script language=”JavaScript”>

This function can also be used to redirect users to appropriate versions of web pages depending on which browser they are using. It’s a very simple and handy script, easy to remember and easy to use. Do comment on any other ways of redirecting a user to another page that you may know of!
