First we had news that Mozilla was building Firefox for Metro in Windows 8.

Now, Google says it’s working on a version of Chrome that will run in the Metro environment.

A Google spokesperson told Mashable that the new version of Chrome would be based on the desktop browser (as opposed to the Android version).

“Our 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,” the rep said. “To that end we’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.”

  1. That’s great.More and more browsers are coming to win8, First firefox and now chrome, when will maxthon and Avant browser add into the browsers team? I like these two browsers which full of build-in useful features.
    Maybe Avant will keep the tri-core version for win8? since the chrome engine and firefox engine are already exist there, I think it’s an easy thing to integrate them into version for win8.
