Google Chrome Partners with Sony Vaio

Category: Prebuilts
Posted: 04:08PM

Sony and Google have signed a deal to package the Chrome web browser on new Vaio PCs. Chrome will be included in addition to Internet Explorer, so users will still have a choice as to which they want to use. This will open the door for thousands of users who may never use Chrome otherwise. Google is currently in talks with other PC manufacturers to strike similar distribution deals. However, the possibility of Chrome becoming the new goto browser anytime soon are slim, as only about 3% of internet users browse with Chrome.

Deals with OEMs can bring tremendous help to market share. Sony isn't really huge in the PC market, but if they can land a similar deal with Acer/HP/Dell I'm sure you'd see their marketshare fly high

I would love to see that. I love Chrome and recommend it to everyone I know. But some people might not want to change even when presented with the option.
