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.

Usually weekly, since 2001, we publish a roundup of travel and travel related technology developments, and often a feature article too.

You’ll stay up to date with the latest and greatest (and cautioned about the worst) developments.  You’ll get information to help you choose and become a better informed traveler and consumer, how to best use new technologies, and at times, will learn of things that might entertain, amuse, annoy or even outrage you.

We’re very politically incorrect and love to point out the unrebutted hypocrisies and unfairnesses out there.

This is all entirely free (but you’re welcome to voluntarily contribute!), and should you wish to, easy to cancel.

We’re not about to spam you any which way and as you can see, we don’t ask for any information except your email address and how often you want to receive our newsletters.
