The harsh policies found around the apps on the Windows 10 S model might lead to an exclusion of Google Chrome from this system. However, even if Google will decide to sustain the simpler version of Windows, this would mean that they need a completely different app than the one people access today in order to enjoy the most popular browser in the world.
Sad News for Fans
With Windows 10 S, you can only install apps from the official Windows Store. As such, this mention made by Microsoft eliminates any possibility of Chrome being included on the platform. The only possibility would be that Google will rework the browser so that it can use the engines Microsoft favors. But even in this case, users cannot choose Chrome as the default browser in the system.
What Is Google Doing?
However, Google is not wasting time. They have indeed made some moves in this direction, and this refers to the fact that the Chrome browser dedicated to the iOS relies on WebKit and not on the Blink engine usually used by Google. It has the same foundation as the Safari browser designed by Apple, but the user feels like they would be browsing with Google. From what it seems, this option is quite popular, and Microsoft would have to lose some fans if they decide to quit on it.
On the other hand, Microsoft suggested that people who are using Windows 10 S can upgrade to the Windows 10 Pro if they want to enjoy a traditional, open app experience.
