You put google chrome as your default browser. The metro chrome browser replaces the metro IE.
It seems like you can only have one metro browser
edit: for putting it back, you need to set IE as the default browser again
You need to have IE10 as your default browser.

Yes, but it's not really Metro at this time. To enable it, you need to have Chrome Dev and set it as your default browser.
There is a Metro Chrome?

No, even the stable version of Google chrome now has Metro version. If you look at the screenshot by the OP, the chrome icon is the metro one. If you set Chrome as the default browser, launching from the start screen will launch the metro version.

Does Metro Chrome auto install from the desktop version or something? Because I noticed this exact same thing last night. I have desktop Chrome installed because the desktop IE keeps un-maximising Flash videos and crashes a lot. I wanted to play with the Metro IE last night though, and noticed that Metro Chrome as installed and IE was missing.
I have absolutely NO idea how Metro Chrome got on there... I didn't install it!

Metro versions of browsers will be installed with the desktop versions. You don't have to install it separately. When metro version of Firefox is released, installing the desktop version will install both versions on Windows 8. Just set the default browser to whichever browser you want to use in the metro mode.

Unacceptable. I chose to install the DESKTOP version of Chrome, which I did before there even WAS a Metro version. At no time was I told the metro version would install, or that it would remove the Metro IE from use. I have a requirement for multiple browsers on my machine.

Chrome is set as the default browser, but clicking on links in apps outside of the browser launches desktop IE, so clearly the default browser part isn't working quite right; at least in the RP anyway.
