Google Chrome web browser: Now Available for Maemo-based Nokia N900

If you own a Nokia N900 you may be glad to hear that Google’s Chrome web browser has recently been developed to work on the handset’s Maemo operating system.

A programmer by the name of Jacekowski recently ported the Debian 32-bit release and developed it to perfectly suit the N900, Jacekowski also managed to give the web browser full Flash Support.

The release is apparently still a work-in-progress, however if you are willing to give it a go you can find the installation files here, apparently to install the browser you must use dpgk.

Recently we have informed you that Google’s Chrome web browser was ‘unhackable‘ at this year’s pwn2own contest, therefore combining such a secure web browser with such a secure operating system should be a great combination.

Have you install Google Chrome on your N900? If so, tell us what you think so far in the comments section below.

    Wow, Chrome looks great in N900.

    Rendering speed not up to the mark, as compared to the native browser.
    Flash plugin crashed on browsing the websites with flash.
    As it is a desktop browser selection is enabled by default while scrolling the view with finger or stylus, scrolling only possible by arrow keys.
    Right click, don't know how to do it, or even its possible in N900, long press on browser window not working.

    Well, these are the things i found.
