Google Readies Retina Display Support for Chrome

Work on tailoring Google Chrome’s appearance to support the high pixel-density of Apple’s new ‘Retina Display’ MacBook Pro has begun.

Google’s Nico Weber, writing on the Chrome blog, explains that the company are ‘committed to polishing Chrome until it shines on that machine.’

Initial progress for ‘basic high-resolution support’ in Chrome is already available to users of the Canary channel.

But with the Retina Display MacBook Pro not shipping until next month, Nico and his team have a few more weeks to add some additional spit and polish to the UI before anyone will notice.

  • Google certainly won’t let Apple steal the show with Safari 6. Great job Google, keeping other browsers on their toes :P

    • I love Google Chrome since it first came out.

  • Not shipping until next month is incorrect – I’m on one right now that was delivered by UPS this morning. All Chrome needs to do is release a version with updated fonts, much more important than updating the UI graphics – that can come later. At the moment I’m on the verge of temporarily switching to safari because of how bad fonts on websites look.
