Yes yes yes, I KNOW!. Some of my favorite Google apps are missing badly on mac, specifically chrome and picasa. Not sure why Google does not cater these apps for the mac community, but it is plain annoying that they do so.

Quite amazing that Google turned 10 this passing week and had already contributed so much to the shaping of our present and future world.
