    the only browser on window 8 is internet explorer . if you want to install google chrome on your pc so you must follow these steps ...........

    1. go to internet explorer
    2. type www.google.com/chrome
    3.you will see download button
    4. click on that
    5.google will display some "Terms of Services" which you have to read. Then click "accept and install"
    6.
    A status dialog pops up asking if you want to run or save ChromeSetup.exe. This is the installation program that will install Chrome on your computer. Click the "Run" button.
    7.
    The Google Chrome installer will run. It will show you the progress as it installs Chrome on your machine. For my slower machine, it takes about 15 minutes.
    8.
    When it is "almost ready" , click the "Next" button which will give you the opportunity to choose your "default browser".
