Join us for the Google I/O 2012 Day 2 keynote (live blog)

The Day 2 keynote of Google I/O should focus on the company's Web presence with an emphasis on Chrome. Join CNET for our live blog.

Tune in to CNET's live blog from the second Google I/O keynote starting at 9:30 a.m. PT.

SAN FRANCISCO--Sure, it was a very busy first day at Google I/O, but our friends from the Googleplex are only getting started. Thursday brings yet another keynote at San Francisco's Moscone Center and if the big news of Wednesday (Nexus tablet! Jelly Bean! Google Glass!) is any indication, we're in for a lively day tomorrow, as well.

While the Wednesday keynote focused on hardware and Android, the second-day event will shift to Google's Web presence with an emphasis on the Chrome browser. Likewise, most of tomorrow's seminars will center on future-Web technologies like Native Client and Dart.

So while we don't know what kind of visuals Google will produce to compete with the skydivers and BMX riders we saw today, it's pretty clear that something big is coming in Chrome. As CNET editor Seth Rosenblatt wrote earlier, Google has been unusually cagey with the latest version of Chrome. Instead of publishing a post announcing what's new, Google released only a list of high-profile security fixes when the release came this morning. What's more, the detailed blog post announcing the Chrome 20 beta, which ought to have appeared six weeks ago, never materialized, either. So spin your conspiracy theories, or better yet, just join us tomorrow morning.

The keynote begins at 10 a.m. PT, but I'll start our live blog around 9:30. Once Google takes the stage, I'll kick things over to Seth and CNET News writer Stephen Shankland to bring you all the news. Believe me, they know browsers inside and out. And just like today, James Martin will deliver a steady stream of photos. You can go here to find out what time we'll start in your time zone, as well as set a reminder. To follow along, you can just bookmark this link and come back to it Thursday morning.
