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.

The “Chase Community Giving” program will let Facebook users choose from more than half a million charities that have an operating budget of less than $10 million apiece. The 100 charities getting the most votes by Dec. 11 will each receive $25,000 from Chase.

In the program’s second round, one of the 100 will get a grant of $1 million, determined by a Facebook vote that begins Jan. 15. Five runners-up will receive $100,000 each. In addition, an advisory board will award $1 million to nominated charities of its choice.
