Good news for Tamil computer users. Google has released their Chrome browser with Tamil interface. Yipee!It’s available in Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya (on Windows Vista alone), Tamil, and Telugu. A Hindi version was available earlier.
Eearlier we had Firefox 2.X with Tamil Interface. It was localised by Thamizha community. Later, Firefox came up with version 3.0 but we didn’t have Tamil interface for it. During this time Firefox 3.0 was released with Sinhala interface.
Later University of Moratuwa worked on and come up with a Sri Lankan Tamil locale interface. Where you need to install English interface, later on top of it you can install the Tamil interface.
Now we have Firefox 3.5 with Tamil interface, but still it’s a Release candidate. So it may be an unstable product.
Now it seems Google has released the browser for most of the major Indian languages including Tamil.
Important part of the help pages of Google Chrome also have been translated into Tamil. But unfortunately they’ve used, Taminglish (Tamilised English words) for some vocabulary. This is often a criticism raised against Google’s translations.
You can grab a copy of your Google Chrome Tamil from Chrome website.
