As a full time web developer and learning the game of SEO, I would like to see Google ToolBar come over to the Mac side. (Mac OS X that is.)
Any Mac heads out there agree?
If so - I motion to add a little pressure on Google and let them know what we need, and need it sooner than later.
I made it easy for you... just e-mail them here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looks more likely to come out on Mozilla, if it ever will come out.
Opera are thinking about stopping developement of Opera for the mac.
Maybe Google is afraid of programs that can automate the process of inspecting PR values, without supplying them with any user behaviour information. Now they're getting something back for revealing the PR of visited pages, but if they gave away the algorithm, they'd be losing that information.
Ok, that's it, I'm making a sign and marching around...
"What do we want?"
"When do we want it?"
which looks like it may have a way of figuring out the rank without the toolbar.. problem is you would still have to have a windows computer to get the ch value for the site.
Numer of Mac visitors to our site (13%) but then our software is built for both platforms...
Honestly, it's like one sentence of code. Apple, or Microsoft, or Google, or some enterprising hacker, could just make a website where we could go and punch in our domain to get the ch value, and we'd be on our own after that.. AND THAT WOULD BE FINE!
We ask so little!

Also, let’s be honest, Mac users are normally an eccentric cross-section of the population… This isn’t the first time Mac users have been left in the dark, either. Let’s talk about Quark 5… the premier app for the Macintosh, considering that everyone using Macs is involved with graphic design on *some* level. And they can’t get their crap together for OSX and Quark 5.
Something tells me it’s not entirely Google’s fault, or Microsoft’s but rests somewhere squarely on Apple’s shoulders. If they can’t get their API together for Quark 5 and OSX to sing together, then what’s on their agenda? Go figure.
Back on topic, it's obscene that there's no way for Mac people to see their PR. Our numbers are growing every day and it's just ridiculous that they're not making this simple yet important information available to us.
