Google’s nascent browser has paired with one of the most popular free security programs in the world so that when users run the Avast installer on a computer that has neither Chrome nor Avast, they’ll be offered a chance to install Chrome simultaneously.
This is the first such bundling for Avast in its 21-year existence.
RealPlayer also offers to install Chrome browser. RealPlayer seems to be first third-party application used to promote Google Chrome.
It appears that AdAware also offers to install the Chrome browser.
A Google spokesman indicated that other deals might be in the works.
