One of the terms that keeps getting thrown around to describe Windows 8 is "metro style". Just today I read an article about the Chrome browser for Windows 8 embracing "metro style". What exactly is this? I just have an image of skinny jeans, messenger bags and emo haircuts, but that doesn't really apply to an operating system or browser, does it? I suppose I could wear my skinny jeans while I carry my laptop in a messenger bag on my way to the local coffee shop while listening to some dubstep. But what exactly do they mean when using the term in a software design context?
