Motorola Adding Chrome Support to Next-Gen Webtop
Motorola is working on a next-generation version of its Webtop mobile application that will add support for Google's Chrome browser. In an interview with The Verge, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha said, "What we call the next generation of Webtop will have more capabilities," adding that the switch to Android 4.0 will lead to a smoother user experience. Webtop allows Motorola phones to connect to a lapdock device and use a full browser and Android applications on the larger screen. The first generation supports Mozilla's Firefox browser instead of Chrome. Jha also revealed that only 9% of Webtop-enabled device owners are using the Webtop application. Jha didn't say when the next version of Webtop will be available.
