Microsoft is nearing the launch of its much-anticipated and promising Windows 8. And in anticipation of this launch, hardware vendors as well as software developers are gearing up to ship out their relevant products. While we do  know that Mozilla team has all plans of handing out a fully-functional Firefox browser for Windows 8, it now appears that Google has also hit the bandwagon.


The dilemma is that although Google Chrome is the most used browser now, Windows remains the most widely OIS. And if Google wishes to maintain its browser supremacy, it will have to prepare for the Windows 8 launch sooner or later and release a Chrome version that will suit Windows 8.

It now seems that the search giant is well aware of this and has already released a Metro styled version of Chrome for Windows 8. The version can be used by downloading it on a machine running Windows 8 Release Preview and then installing the latest dev channel release from Google. Moreover, you will also require to make it the default browser in Windows 8.

The Metro version of the browser is good but not very different from its regular version. It offers add-ons and sync and also provides support for Adobe Flash content. The app is not fully Metro yet, in that it doesn’t yet support forward and backwards swipe motions on touchscreen devices. However, top-to-bottom swipe motions are supported.

The browser also supports the sharing contract feature of Windows 8, allowing the users to share web pages with various apps. In looks as well as in functionality, the app is good, though not extra-ordinary. We can hope that Google may release a better version once Windows 8 is finally here.
