Air Chrome? Get ready to surf the sky.

Posted by Jeremy Paris on November 9, 2010

Google will be making Chrome and the internet available for free on major airlines for the holiday season.  This is a huge step forward for us tech geeks that want to surf the net while in-flight.  I have access to IE, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome on a daily basis and I have to say that Chrome is my favorite.  There is still about 2% of sites that I need to use that don’t work great on Chrome, but what can you do.  I have to admit though that IE9 looks promising.  I haven’t played with that one yet, but will post to this site when I do.

Chrome will be available Nov 20 through Jan 2 on more than 700 planes including flights on AirTran, Delta, and Virgin American.  If you get a chance to use this, shoot me a comment and let me know how your experience was.  I am very interested to see how slow the internet speeds will be in-flight.  It could possibly give a new meaning to jet-lag.
