Google Chrome for Mac Disregards Accessibility

Yet another way that Chrome for Mac fails to support important Mac OS X technologies:

Despite being built on the open source WebKit HTML rendering engine, which itself provides accessibility support for the Mac OS X platform with VoiceOver, Google’s final release provides no accessibility to web content whatsoever. Indeed, apart from menus and a handful of standard controls, Google has apparently not given any consideration to accessibility in Chrome.
