Google Reportedly Developing Chrome For Windows Phone 8

report notes, while Microsoft prefers to see web browsers that are based on the Internet Explorer engine on its platforms, Redmond might just reconsider its approach here, and allow Google to port the Chrome browser on Windows Phone 8. Apparently, this rumor stems from this support ticket that was initiated in the Chromium open source project opened by a Google engineer about a Windows Phone version of the browser. It has not seen much action since October 2012 when it was first opened, until two days ago, when the ownership of the project changed hands. No confirmation that Google is indeed working on the web browser, but an indication, nevertheless, that people are looking into it. Everything depends on whether the company is forced to rebuild the browser from ground up by Microsoft in order for the app to comply with the terms it has outlined for its platforms. Too much of development work and Google might decide on skipping it. Then again, for how long?]]>
