Google "Back in March, we began work on a Metro-style enabled desktop browser, a version of Chrome that will run in both the Metro and desktop environments of Windows 8 on x86. (Chrome won't run in WinRT, i.e. Windows 8 on ARM processors, as Microsoft is not allowing browsers other than Internet Explorer on the platform). If you're running the Release Preview of Windows 8, you'll be able to try Chrome in Metro mode in the next Chrome Dev channel release by setting it as your default browser." Metro-Chrome is just plain Chrome running in Metro, without a proper Metro UI at this point. They're working on that though, so this is really very early game. Good to know they're on it, though - I love me some WebKit.

I think you mean "Aero" rather than "Aqua" ("Aqua" is the UI of OSX 10.0 (I don't know if Apple still uses the term "Aqua" today)).

As for "business" won't adopt Metro thing, so what? Business will be in Windows 7 for years to come anyway. And Windows 8 has the desktop environment too. As well as command line UI.
