Sony Signs Chrome Browser Deal With Google

Sony today said that all of its Vaio-brand PCs sold in the U.S. will ship with Google's Chrome as their default Web browser. The deal marks a first for Google, as the search company has never forged such a deal with a computer maker before. First reported in the Financial Times, a Google spokesperson confirmed the reports and called the deal "experimental," continuing on to say that the search giant is in talks with other manufacturers regarding similar deals.

How many of you use Google Chrome? More importantly, would you choose Chrome as your default browser if it were already installed on your computer when you bought it. Let us know in the comments below!

    I still use FireFox, I like the add-ons and I'm familiar with it. Although I'd take Chrome over Internet Explorer any day.

    Chrome has been my default browser for the past 3-4 months. I like it so far despite one minor bug (screen not displaying some objects properly, alt-tabing solves this) and the fact that I have to open a new tab to select a link from my favorites folder. Besides that, it's quite fast, clean and stable.
