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.

Look at the UI chrome at the top. Not designed for Touch.

Gotta love trolls.

Both the osnews article and the blog post state this. But they also state that the Metro mode is a work in progress and that they know that the UI must be improved.

Why would they even release this until it's ready? Pointless.

I'm guessing it's called Chrome Dev channel, not a release, for a reason...
