Google Shifts Chrome Browser Out of Test Mode

google-chromeGoogle is shifting its Web browser out of test mode just 100 days after its debut, an unusually quick transition for a company known for keeping the “beta” tag on some products for years. Today’s removal of the test label from Google’s browser, called Chrome, underscores its importance to the Internet search leader.

Google is trying to lure Web surfers away from the leading browsers, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and the Mozilla Foundation’s Firefox.

In the process, Google hopes Chrome makes it easier to gather insights about users’ preferences and extends the popularity of its online applications, which are supposed to run more smoothly and quickly in Chrome.

Since its Sept. 2 introduction, Chrome has attracted more than 10 million active users around the world, according to a Google blog posting that announced the browser’s upgrade.
