Google’s Android operating system and Chrome web browser have been parts of the Mountain View based company’s dual strategies however, Chrome web store is still in its infancy and Google has high hopes for the browser and its future on mobile devices.
Senior vice president of Chrome and Apps at Google Inc., Sundar Pichai, talked at length about various aspects and plans of the company at the closing keynote discussion of the 2012 Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference held on Thursday.
Pichai thinks that mobile web is in the stage of infancy at present and the market will be flourishing across the next three to five years.
At present, Google Chrome has approximately 200 million users all over the world and even though it is mainly desktop experience but as components of Google’s dual strategy the browser has started to appear on mobile devices.
In fact, just a week ago the company launched a beta version of the Chrome browser for Android smartphones powered by Android 4.0 or the Ice Cream Sandwich. The high profile executive also disclosed that “future of Chrome” is to roll out the platform over smartphones as well as tablet computers, reported ZD Net.
Pichai thinks that, “Users expect a seamless, integrated experience across devices,” and thus Google wants to provide them with that.
