Companies say no to Google Chrome

Posted on Monday, October 06 2008 @ 11:01:23 CEST by

Silicon.com surveyed a dozen of CIOs and learned most companies aren't testing the new Google Chrome browser. One of the primary reasons seems to be because their IT infrastructure is set up to run with IE as the default browser:
In silicon.com's latest exclusive CIO Jury poll, the respondents revealed they were still steering clear of the application, with 10 out of 12 saying their IT teams are not testing it.

Many in the 'no' camp attributed their lack of Chrome testing to their IT infrastructures being set up to run with Internet Explorer as the default browser.

Nic Evans, European IT director, Key Equipment Finance said: "Too many business applications are only certified for Internet Explorer to consider any alternatives so soon."

One respondent however hoped the advent of Chrome will force Microsoft to up its game in the browser market.

Iain Hepburn, IT Director at law firm Clarke Willmott added: "We use MOSS [Microsoft Office SharePoint Server] and extensive other MS applications and development tools, so we pretty much live in a MS world and have to use IE to get full functionality. We will be watching with interest though and any competition which forces everyone (MS) to raise their game is good for the consumer. We await the release of IE8 and what that may bring."
