Google has launched a dedicated Mac blog and a new software download page for the platform.

The company's Mac downloads page now offers the following software available for Macs: Google Notifier, Google Toolbar, Google SketchUp, Picasa Web Albums Uploader, Google Earth, and a range of Google Widgets.

The Google Mac blog received its first entry late last night. It promises that the company is serious in its commitment to the Mac, adding: "We're thrilled to have our Mac team in place, and they're just getting started. Watch this blog to keep up with the latest about everything Google is doing to support Mac users."
