Google trying to get OEM deals for Chrome browser

Posted on Monday, November 24 2008 @ 21:21:49 CET by

CNET spotted Google is in talks with OEMs to get its Chrome browser pre-installed onto new PCs:
Sundar Pichai, a Google vice president, told The Times Online that the company will explore ways to make Chrome more ubiquitous and "probably do distribution deals" with OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to get the browser onto new PCs.

Currently, Internet Explorer commands more than 70 percent of browser market share. Open source Firefox captures roughly 20 percent, with the rest going to others such as Safari, Chrome, and Opera.

OEM relationships will certainly help Chrome adoption, but it's hard to see how IE gets completely displaced due to the fact that it's is embedded in Windows.
Pichai also said Google is working on Linux and Mac versions of Chrome, but these won't available until sometime in the first half of 2009.
