Today, Google announced that both Chrome and Chromium are now manageable through Group Policy objects on Windows, plist/MCX configuration on Mac, and special JSON configuration files on Linux.

"We polished up the NTLM and Kerberos protocol support, and created a list of supported policies and administrative templates to help admins deploy. For users needing access to older web apps not yet qualified for Chrome, we also developed Chrome Frame, an Internet Explorer (TM) plug-in that provides Chrome-quality rendering for the broader Web, while defaulting to host rendering for any web apps that still require IE," explains Google.

"Even though the first set of features is done, we still have some interesting ideas that we're working on, including more policies to manage everything in the content settings and authentication protocols, and interesting new ways to deploy policy cross-platform," Google added.

Meanwhile, try out the new features by checking out the articles, top questions, downloading MSI installer, and filing bugs. And let your administrator know to give it a try and let us know what they think.
