Fans of Chrome or its open source cousin Chromium will soon be able to get a version optimized for the Release Preview of Windows 8, as the team says it’s almost ready to unveil what it promised us in March. Chrome in Metro is designed to work in both the desktop and Metro environments of Windows 8 on any x86 machine. Pretty much all PCs should be fine, but anybody on ARM will be out of luck, since some features of Windows RT are restricted to Internet Explorer. The shot above looks much like ordinary Chrome, but the software will apparently integrate with Windows 8 features like charms and snap view. It’s likely to be a bit rough when it launches, so the Chromium team urges users to file bug reports.
