Hello World! This is my first blog post from Windows 10. The Technical Preview came out yesterday and I have it installed on my PC, and yes, Google Chrome was the first thing that I installed on the Windows 10.
Downloading Google Chrome for Windows 10
It is just the same Google Chrome browser that you download from google.com/chrome. The download and install went pretty smooth. I use Chromesync, so getting everything back, including my extensions and passwords was easy, and smooth.
Windows 8 Mode or Metro Mode
Yes, we still have the “Relaunch Chrome in Windows 8 Mode”. It gives us the Metro Mode Chrome, but this time on Windows 10, I still see the Windows Task Bar at the bottom.
I think that’s how Microsoft wanted it to look, because I can see the task bar when I use other Metro apps. May be this is a bug that they are yet to fix?
We’ll find out soon!
I am yet to find anything Windows 10 specific for Google Chrome, but I’ll keep looking. That’ll give me a reason to use my PC once in a while I guess!
Upgrading from Windows 81.
Upgrading Windows from 8.1 to 10 Technical Preview also went pretty smooth. I copied the ISO that I downloaded to a USB, double clicked to extract it, and launched the setup file.
I was up and running on Windows 10 Technical Preview within 15 minutes, and I had my files and apps untouched.
Are you guys planning to test Windows 10? I would like to hear about your experience too!
