Google unveils customisable Chrome browser for businesses

IT administrators can now configure and deploy the browser according to their business requirements

By CBR Staff Writer

Google said Chrome now offers controls which allow IT administrators to easily configure and deploy the browser on Windows, Mac, and Linux according to their business requirements.

The search engine giant said it has created an MSI installer which enables enterprises who use standard deployment tools to install Chrome for all users of managed machines.

A support has been added for managed group policy, with a list of policies and a set of templates which allow administrators to easily customise browser settings to manage security and privacy.

Google has also added standard policy controls for Google Chrome Frame, an Internet Explorer plug-in that provides Chrome-quality rendering for the broader Web.

By deploying Google Chrome, organisations can take advantage of improved security and Web application performance without needing to upgrade other expensive software licenses or buy new hardware, and also access productivity-enhancing HTML5 web applications.

Google said it was working on polishing the next set of policies that will make Google Chrome even more customisable and useful to users in the future.
