Google will not integrate Chrome in Windows 7

Posted: October 22, 2009 in Google, Microsoft

Google has called off its plans to fully integrate the Chrome web browser with Microsoft’s new Windows 7 operating system. The news has come after an announcement by the Mozilla Foundation that Firefox 3.6, the next version of the open source browser, would integrate with Windows 7 features such as taskbar thumbnail previews and jump lists, reports IDG.

According to reports in The Register, Google’s internal issue tracking system signals that work on the features has been pushed back to version 5 of the browser. Chrome is currently on the 3.0 release, while version 4 is presently under development.

The work seems to be on progress regarding Google’s Chrome OS. An early developer build of the operating system has been leaked on Google.
