Google Chrome Metro app for Windows 8 now available
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 for Windows 8 doesn’t follow any of the Metro design conventions. While that may change before the final release, we’re guessing that Google is opting to maintain a consistent design across platforms rather than adapt to Microsoft’s suggestions. 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.
