Google confirms arrival of Chrome for Windows 8

Google logoEarly this year, we’ve said that Mozilla is developing a dedicated Firefox browser for Windows 8. Google also announced that it is working on a Chrome version that will run on Windows 8. Now that the Windows 8 Release Preview has been launched, Google’s promised Chrome browser for Windows 8 seems to be in its final stages of development. Via its The Chromium Blog, Google said that the initial releases of Chrome in Metro mode will include integration with the basic Windows 8 system functionality, such as charms and snap view.

However, if you have already downloaded the Release Preview of Windows 8, Google said that you will be able to try Chrome in Metro mode during the next Chrome Dev channel release. “Over the next few months, we’ll be smoothing out the UI on Metro and improving touch support, so please feel free to file bugs. We’re committed to bringing the speed, simplicity, and security of Chrome into Windows 8, and we look forward to working with you on it,” Google software engineer Carlos Pizan said. Obviously Chrome will not be running on Windows 8, at least by default, as Microsoft is using its own browser – Internet Explorer – on the platform.

OK, did this without tolbure, although I've had carpal tunnel in the past. Also a huge knot in right forearm some years back, requiring PT for 5 weeks. I keep doing the exercises given then because they feel good. Had thought I might have a problem keeping my back down, because of swayback. Will go on to next test http://xphjzva.com [url=http://yflteauuefp.com]yflteauuefp[/url] qxfcpnrqwe
