Google Chrome Metro app for Windows 8 available now
posted by Charlene S. / Jun 13, 2012, 6:44 PM
Google teased its upcoming Chrome browser for Windows 8 a few weeks ago. Now, it is already available as a test release.
For those that are running the Windows 8 Release Preview, you can install the latest Dev Channel build to get access. Simply set Chrome as your default browser and your Metro Start Screen will sport a shiny new Chrome icon.
Chrome fans will also be happy to know that this build supports Flash playback from any site, not just a list of authorized sites like IE 10 does.
Have any of our readers checked out Chrome’s Metro app? What was your first impression?

Oh, thank God. Now, if I get an unlocked Windows Phone for fun, I won't have to use the worst browser in the history of all browsers, and instead will be able to use the best.

Don't want to burst your bubble, but this is for windows 8, not windows phone. :-)

I'm assuming you really haven't tried IE9 at all. I'm guessing this because you are just saying the same thing that everybody else says, when few people have actually tried it for themselves. Way to keep pushing an unfounded stigma. Also, Windows Phone 8 does not equal Windows 8. This article is talking about Windows 8. And I'm a Chrome user, just for clarification.
