Chrome Won't Get You Home

There's a saying amongst hard core bikers that "chrome won't get you home." The idea is that all that shiny metal doesn't make a motorcycle any better.

In the case of Google, Chrome might not get you home, but it will get you to your home page (wow, that was one lame gag).

And now Google is trying to make the Chrome browser more of a corporate standard by adding new admin tools. The trick, though, is these new controls are only for companies that shell out dollars for Google Apps for Business or Education.

The new controls, at 50 clams per year per user, include improved administration such as group policies and easier installation, and provides support over the phone or through e-mail.
