(Hat Tip: Ajay from Techtites)
Unless you have never visited the Google homepage during the past week, turned on the television or even read the comic book (which TechCrunch sold for almost $3200 USD) then you probably have heard of Google Chrome.
Google has been promoting their latest browser on several of their corporate blogs (not to mention launching two corporate blogs for Chrome), and it looks as if they are now promoting Chrome on Orkut as well (which I took a screen shot within Opera).
The link leads to the Google Chrome home page, and after successfully downloading Chrome (and logging back into Orkut) you are greeted with this page:
Note: For those of you who do not get the donut joke, it goes back to the days when Orkut was really unstable.
Anyways some people may wonder why Google would be promoting Chrome on Orkut, especially since their are other great browsers such as Firefox and Opera?
My theory is that Google is trying to get users off of Internet Explorer (aka IE) which most of the Orkut population uses.
Hopefully people will consider switching away from IE (especially IE6 which is a hackers paradise), although Orkut may have to implement extra features (note: perhaps Google gears for Orkut scrapbooks, profiles?) in order to convince the masses to leave.
