Google has announced it will be taking a cue from Firefox by agreeing to play nice with Microsoft's most radical OS overhaul – the hotly-anticipated Windows 8.
A Google spokesperson has confirmed the search giant is working on a Metro-style version of its Chrome browser for Windows 8.
So like the new Windows 8 OS itself, the Chrome browser is about to undergo a huge transformation that will be based on the company's standard desktop browser with enhanced touch support – as opposed to Google's mobile Android version.
Commenting on its Windows 8 move, a Google spokesperson said: "Our goal is to be able to offer users a speedy, simple, secure Chrome experience across all platforms, which includes both the desktop and Metro versions of Windows 8."
With Windows 8 slated for an October release, we've got a bit of a wait on our hands. But with the official beta version now available for free, you'll be able to get a taste of Microsoft's finger-friendly OS right now.
