It appears that next year, Google plans to position its Chrome browser more aggressively against Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Sundar Pichai, who is responsible for Google's product management, told the The Times newspaper that there are plans to make agreements with PC vendors about shipping their computers with Chrome already installed.

Microsoft's UK director John Curran responded calmly, saying that the market is open and users choose the browser most suitable for them. He said for the majority of UK users, this is Internet Explorer.

According to Pichai, Chrome is to complete its beta phase in January 2009. Versions for Mac OS and Linux are scheduled for release before the end of July 2009.
