Google to advertise on TV


by David Allen

Google is starting its first ever TV advertising campaign in the US.

The plan is to promote the browser Chrome that was launched last year but has since failed to make the massive impact that everyone expected.

The firm has not been tempted by TV in the past, but even with the coverage that Google is getting on the Internet there are many millions of people who take more notice of what they see on TV.

Chrome has a long way to go, as currently Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has 66% of the browser market, while Mozilla’s Firefox has 22%, then Apple’s Safari browser is in third place with just 8%.

However, Chrome is still disappointing with a tiny 1.4% of internet users choosing to use the Google browser.
