US State Department Switches to Chrome from Internet Explorer


Who would have ever expected Hillary Clinton to be fielding geeky questions at a Town Hall meeting for the State Department, but that’s exactly what she did this past week. A concerned person in the audience asked her what could be done about the slow update process for the infrastructure in the Statue Department, with the question being met with rounds of laughter. After the laughter died down, Clinton announced that the State Department would be switching to Google’s Chrome to help alleviate the pain of updates.

This is a huge step forward for Chrome, as a US government organization is acknowledging the fact that Google’s painless and silent updates are a much better way to keep a browser functioning than hiding updates behind an operating system as optional.
