Free on-board Wi-Fi Courtesy of Google Chrome

Googlechromelogo2b Christmas is coming a bit early this year, at least if you are flying on an AirTran, Delta or Virgin America flight between 20 November and 2 January.  Google is sponsoring free on-board Wi-Fi on all flights operated by these three airlines over this six week period, if the planes have on-board Wi-Fi capabilities.

What's the catch?  Nothing much.  It seems you'll have to access the internet via Google's Chrome web browser, so download a copy here (it is free) before your next flight.

I've used Chrome for a year or two now.  It is as good a browser as any of the other browsers out there, and can be customized and made even better by adding some extensions to the basic browser.

  1. Please understand that Chrome is NOT required to use the free wifi on these airlines. You can check each airline website for the browsers that CAN be used.
