Google Chrome ads on TV: Google launches its 1st TV ad

Google trying all means to promote its browser, Chrome. Google had never advertised on traditional TV. response when it first launched. But as for today, there are only 1.4% of internet users using Chrome.
A couple of months ago, Google Japan team had produced a fun video to demonstrate how clean and simple Google Chrome user interface is. This video went viral in the blogoshere/and internet as a whole, by seeing this positive response, Google has decided to make the video reach more people.


we talked to our Google TV Ads team to see how we could show the video that our Japan team developed to a wider audience in a measurable way. Using some of the results from our placement-targeted ads on the Google Content Network, we designed a Google TV Ads campaign which we hope will raise awareness of our browser, and also help us better understand how television can supplement our other online media campaigns.
So today, we’re pleased to announce that we’re using Google TV Ads to run our Chrome ad on various television networks starting this weekend. We’re excited to see how this test goes and what impact television might have on creating more awareness of Google Chrome.

Download Google browser: Chrome

We already have many Free browsers, then why did Google think of releasing yet another ?

The answer is, Google’s “Chrome” is not just an ordinary browser. Its an application which enables users to better handle interactive applications and resource-hungry web pages such as video clips and online games. It is also less likely to crash. This might be a step into the next generation web. I personally feel that, this is the beginning of next generation Internet.

For now we can not talk much about “Chrome”, anyhow we are also eagerly testing the Beat version of “Chrome“, link to download “Chrome” is at the end of this article. Its launched in almost 100 countries today and only for windows users, but will be soon launching in all countries and for all operating systems.

Its built on Open Source platform and the browser will remain Open Source. Google has also released official Google Chrome comic book and its worth taking a look and it almost explains all its features and its purpose, so I will not cover all those things here.

Google will host a webcast press briefing and demo at 11 a.m. Pacific time today and here are the link to watch, if you are interested – Windows Media Player or Real Player.



I think in the coming years Microsoft’s IE(followed by their Operating System’s) will vanish and Mozilla Firefox may merge with Google and the Operating system may go online with Google OS or something like that, with xxGB or/and unlimited(for premium users) storage etc…these are my wild personal predictions….nothing might even happen like this!

Google is showing the download link to “Chrome” on its homepage– google.com, as Google know that, it need to compit with those browsers which come in as default with the Operating System. Click below image to enlarge..
