Google Chrome Giving Free Inflight WiFi Becoming Holiday Tradition

Google Chrome announced it will be giving holiday travelers the gift of free inflight WiFi again this year.

Travelers flying on AirTran Airways, Delta, and Virgin America between Nov. 20 and January 2 will be able to access the web for free.

Google teams with GoGo - the inflight WiFi provider - to give free access. Google stated the "participating airlines have outfitted their entire domestic fleet with Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi, and we expect more connected passengers this holiday season than ever before!

Just bring a Wi-Fi enabled laptop or mobile device and stay connected to family and friends while you travel."

Interestingly they also plug using the Google Chrome browser - so one wonders how this will help them in the browser wars.
