After you install Chrome version 23 or later on the desktop, you can choose the Relaunch Chrome in Windows 8 mode option from the menu. When you do, the program pops up this Windows 8-style default menu. If you choose Google Chrome, it becomes the default browser and is available in both modes.
After installing Google Chrome and setting it as default, you'll find that it's available on the menu under the Search box. Enter a search term and your request goes to the default search engine in Chrome (which doesn't have to be Google).
The Windows 8 version of Chrome responds correctly to the Windows Settings charm. Clicking that charm opens this pane, and clicking Settings here opens the familiar Chrome page on the left.
