Service-Now.Com Suggests Google Chrome Improvements for Enterprise SaaS Consumption
As the first enterprise provider of IT service management via SaaS, Service-now.com is built on the Internet. Service-now.com works to deliver compatibility with its customers' most commonly used browsers including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, the iPhone browser and Google Android implementations.
Fred Luddy, Service-now.com founder and CEO, said, "Our Google Chrome compatibility testing is officially done. We made phenomenal progress, provided feedback to the Chromium project and, in the process, helped Safari users.
"It remains to be seen if Chrome is a fad or an enduring trend, especially in the corporate world. We are trying to keep this new WebKit implementation in perspective as we allocate our development resources. Frankly, I think our mobile customer base might be better served by us putting the same effort into testing a mobile interface like the iPhone and Android implementations of WebKit."
Service-now.com would like to see the Chromium project improve Chrome developer tools to the level of Firefox and Internet Explorer developer tools.
