Google is investigating deals to pre-install its Chrome browser on new computers in order to gain more adoption for its project.
Such vendors are reported to include Dell, Toshiba, HP, and

Acer, all looking to get the program on their machines in place of Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

"We will probably do distribution deals," Pichai said. "We could work with an OEM and have them ship computers with Chrome pre-installed."
He also added that new versions of the browser will be coming for the likes of Linux-based machines and Macs, probably to be released in the first half of 2009, as well as seeing the PC Chrome browser move out of 'beta' version.
Last thing to add is that Chrome still has a way to go before ousting the Firefox and Internet Explorer known at present as the browsers giants.
