We all know that Google Chrome works fine on Windows 8 and you can add it as an app to your Metro UI. But news of the day is, there are some metro specific Â features coming to Chrome to make your browsing experience on Windows 8 more lively.
â€œOur goal is to be able to offer our users a speedy, simple, secure Chrome experience across all platforms, which includes both the desktop and Metro versions of Windows 8,â€ the rep said. â€œTo that end weâ€™re in the process of building a Metro version of Chrome along with improving desktop Chrome in Windows 8 such as adding enhanced touch support.â€ (Mashable)
Metro UI has live tiles. Now, lets start imaging Chrome’s live tile updating with say, alerts, or download status…hmm what else can you think of?
AnotherÂ possibilityÂ is Chrome for Windows 8 Tablets. If the team decides to add features similar to Chrome for Android here also, we will get a seamless experience on a Windows 8 tablet and Windows 8 PC.
I’ve Windows 8 consumer preview running on netbook now so I will keep that there ( I was planning to change back to Chromium OS) and see what the team comes up with. So, expect some hot Windows 8 Chrome news soon. But until then, I want you to use your imagination and drop me some comments on what you would like to see on Chrome Metro UI on Windows 8.
