Google testing Chrome OS-like browser interface for Windows 8


Launch Chrome in Windows 8 and you won't see much that's different compared to other desktop releases, even in the Metro-like mode. That may change soon. Google's has posted a Dev Channel version of its browser whose Windows 8 interface mimics Chrome OS, right down to the app tray and multi-window system. Whether or not many users will see this view isn't certain, however. Features in Chrome developer builds aren't guaranteed to reach finished software; this may remain an experiment. If the next stable version of the browser feels like a Chromebook sales pitch, though, it won't be a surprise.
