If you are one of the millions of brave souls who downloaded the Windows 8 Release Preview, but are looking for an IE replacement in Metro this PSA is for you. Google apparently began work on a Windows 8 Metro version of Chrome back in March, and the fruits of these labors are getting ready to enter beta. This first release won’t be compatible with Windows RT for ARM tablets, but just about any other x86 hardware should be good to go.
If we’ve peaked your interest you should keep an eye on the Chrome Developer channel, as we have been told it could appear there any day now. We were also cautioned that this first release will likely be a bit rough around the edges, and users who try it out are encouraged to help the Chrome team out by filling our regular bug reports.
