Google Chrome vs. IE10 on Windows 8 Metro
Posted on Jun 13 2012 10:51 AM by xper in Software

Want to see what a Windows 8 Metro-style app can do when it isn't constrained by the usual Metro conventions? The latest developer build of Google's Chrome browser brings a fascinating view of what the future could hold if app developers aren't chained to the swipe-here-swipe-there confines of "normal" Metro-style apps.

If you're running Windows 8 RP, head over to Preston Gralla's blog for directions on how to download and install the Dev Channel version of Chrome and set it up as the default browser (the only way to enable Chrome on the Metro side of Windows 8).

Before you start on these little guided tours, get rid of your preconceived notions about what a Windows 8 Metro app "should" do. Microsoft made the mold. Google can break out of it.

Cleanse your mind of the lecture about how Metro "always" does this or that. Microsoft's making up the rules as it goes along anyway, lest you've forgotten the last-minute changes in Aero or the ribbon-shown-as-default flap in Internet Explorer.
