Google posts "Get Your Google Back" Windows 8 page-video

We have already reported that Google has launched a Search app made for Windows 8 that can replace Bing as the default search engine. Now Google has put more of an emphasis on its Windows 8 efforts with a new video and a website with the URL getyourgoogleback.com.

The YouTube video shows how to get the Google Search app for Windows 8 as well as how to install the Chrome web browser and have it as part of the Windows 8 Start screen. Earlier this year, Google released a version of Chrome that works with Windows 8's "Modern" UI.

In a post on Google's blog, the company said:

The Chrome browser is the same Chrome you know and love, with some customizations to optimize for touchscreens, including larger buttons and the ability to keep Chrome open next to your other favorite apps. It delivers the fast, secure web experience you’ve come to expect from Chrome on all your devices.

The video gently pokes a little fun at Windows 8 itself, as it seems to suggest that Windows 8 is not complete without some kind of Google search and browser support. The video even recommends dancing to celebrate putting Google services in Windows 8 once you are done installing Google Search and Chrome.
