Google wants Chrome pre-installed on computers

According to information from Times Online, Google is considering negotiating with personal computer manufacturers to pre-install its Google Chrome browser.

This move could help Google better face the battle with Internet Explorer and offer users a new experience of browsing and interacting with the web. This desire to increase Chrome’s marketshare has an explanation: the browser should get a non-beta version in January 2009, as reported by Sundar Pichai, Product Manager at Google.

Another novelty, according to Pichai, will be the launch of versions of Chrome for Mac and Linux in the first half of next year, allowing the browser to run on all current computers.
