    Rumors is that Google is making Google Chrome for Windows Phone.

    If Google was to make Chrome for Windows Phone. Would you use it ?

    I would definitely give it a try! I think it would depend on feature set. However given Google's track record with WP, this actually being made would surprise me.

    I won't use Google Chrome, I'd prefer to have Chromium instead.

    As for that rumor, I don't think Google is willing to create browsers on an OS that does not allow WebKit.

    Nope, not anymore, I ditched Chrome on my PC. Sometimes it gets too buggy and unusable... Opera is 100000% better!!

    Not a chance in hell. Since Google started acting like dicks with Windows and Windows Phone users they were banned. No Chrome, no Google account. The only thing I use it from is for search when Bing doesn't find what I want.

    And regardless, I doubt this will happen because Google considers that its Windows customers are not important.

    I'm running Chromium, not Chrome, on my Linux PC.

    I have a Lumia 520, it probably wouldn't run well on it.

    I'll use it, that would also bring Chromecast support. But I don't think that Google will use something different than webkit for Chrome. Will Microsoft finally let webkit support for WP?

    I might try it but I'd much rather see Firefox or Opera on WP8. Probably not going to happen though...

    can you tell me about the difference ? Is Chromium an open source project backed by Google ?

    I agree. But what baffles me is that Chromium is open source. Why haven't dev taken advantage of this and made it for WP?

    Wikipedia has a good article. Chromium (web browser) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Eh, if you asked my a year ago, I would've said yes.
    But the lack of ARMv6 support (on Android) and the need for a decent sync between the Android and my computer began my weaning onto Firefox. My upgrade to Windows 8, Windows Phone, and Google's less than friendly activities were the final blow. I use a combo of Firefox and IE now. IE still chokes a bit here and there so FF for fancy things like YouTube and TagPro, IE for tab syncing and my "official" favorites list.

    I must admit Linux is impressive. They have gone a long way. I almost switch to Ubuntu just a little while before W8 was announced. But I choose W8. :-).

    Not on my phone, but on Windows tablets that can't run full Chrome. So that excludes the Surface Pro's. ;)

    Will Google support Pointer events and other W3C standards they are currently ignoring or twisting into something proprietary?
    Will Google start developing their web "apps" in a full featured cross browser standards based way?
    If the answer to either of these questions is no, then my answer is as well.

    It won't ever appear on ANYTHING I own and if you are reading it on WMPoweruser, and its written by Surur, get collaboration. That cat spins tales like Dr Seuss.

    Guess I need to be clearer, Chromium may appear but google chrome? Never.
