Google Chrome Ads Come to Television

Google has launched its first television advertising campaign for Google Chrome, the company’s nine-month-old web browser.

I find it a little odd to advertise web browsers on television. Late at night, watching reruns of The Simpsons, I usually don’t think to myself, “I wonder if I could be more productive with a better web browser?”

Nevertheless, the marketing people at Google know better than I do, I suppose. Clearly, the company is making a push to cash in on an increasingly large percentage of Internet users – estimated as high as 30-40% – who are looking for alternatives to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

Let us know what you think:

Judging by the time of this post, perhaps late at night you should be wondering if you can be more productive with a better web browser.
