Chrome Coming to webOS?

We’re getting the first glimpses of today Google’s Google I/O developer conference and already some exciting news is leaking from within the walls of the conference center. According to Fortune’s Seth Weintraub, we should expect to see Chrome for Palm webOS in the very near future.

Weintraub gave everyone a quick glimpse of the showroom floor this morning on YouTube and at the end of the video, he notes that Palm appears to be there at the Google Chrome booth.

Chrome is currently only available for the PC, Mac and Linux and if we’re expecting it to come out for webOS and finally hit the mobile scene, then we can only imagine we’d be seeing a version released for Android, the operating system for Google’s own Nexus One as well. The iPhone and iPad version, however, we don’t think we’ll hold our breath waiting for.

In the world of desktop browsers, Chrome has been steadily gaining on competitors Internet Explorer and Firefox in recent months. As it has gained more and more features and increased stability, it’s become a viable alternative to the old stand-bys. An introduction to the mobile realm could be an interesting development for the browser that’s seen as a lightweight and speedy alternative to it’s bulkier counterparts.
