So it’s possible to run the Google Chrome browser using Wine (latest dev version 1.1.4), though it’s kinda slow, and won’t do any https sites.

Plugin: SyntaxHighlighter Plus 0.18
Unfortunately, the BBcode tags don’t allow for the configuration options to be passed to the scripts. (Maybe in a future release?)
SyntaxHighlighter Plus supports the same languages as Google Syntax Highlighter, and the formatted output looks the same. I recommend the Google Syntax Highlighter plugin if you want to use the configuration options, and this SyntaxHighlighter Plus plugin if you are too lazy to pre-escape all your special characters.
Example formatting… looks familiar

Plugin: Google Syntax Highlighter 1.5.1
Google Syntax Highlighter uses Google’s Syntax Highlighter by Alex Gorbatchev.
Installation is easy, just unzip and activate. If it doesn’t work, make sure that your theme has a <?php wp_footer(); ?> tag just before the </body> tag.
Customization seems like it would be pretty easy since formatting and colors are defined in a css style sheet. There are a few configuration options you can pass to the script which control how the formatting looks. The collapse is nice, so your code starts out hidden. Unfortunately, there is no way to re-collapse the code after being expanded, but it is a nice option to have. You can also start the line numbering at a specific number.
There are some nice features, with view plain, copy to clipboard, and print links at the top of the code. Overall, a pretty nice highlighter.
Example of configuration options: collapse and showcolumns
