Since 2012 there has been an open ticket at code.google.com labelled:
Issue 153802: Port Chrome to Windows Phone 8 aka WP8
This has been blocked for a while however, seemingly because no-one at Google purchased any Windows Phones.
Now however, after 8 months of lying fallow, Carlos Pizano, Software Engineer and "Metro Gnome" at Google, has re-opened the ticket and assigned it to fellow member of the Chromium team dxie, for investigation.
Hopefully the move is a sign that the growing popularity of Windows Phone is creating a population too large for Google to ignore.
Are our readers looking forward to Chrome for Windows Phone?
Thanks korreBorre for the tip.
