Google Chrome to Come Pre-installed on Sony Vaios

CNET reports that Google Chrome, Google’s web browser that was released a year and a day ago, will now come pre-installed and set as the default browser on Sony Vaio computers in the United States. While Google Chrome represents only three percent of the browser market, it is likely to get a boost from this deal. CNET also speculates that this deal may also suggest that Sony will be among the companies that will offer netbooks running Google Chrome OS, Google’s announced Linux-based operating system for the netbook market.

Google has now beat Mozilla to have its browser included by a major company on a Windows computer first. This deal may, however, help Mozilla strike similar deals with Sony’s competitors by setting a precedent. Mozilla has been trying to get its own browser, Firefox, pre-installed on computers for several years now.
