Google to shine holiday cheer and free Wi-Fi in 47 airports for the holidays

Google loves you and wants to make sure your holiday travel isn’t absolutely horrible by providing free Wi-Fi at 47 airports nationwide. Don’t be evil, indeed.

The promo starts on November 16 and runs through January 15, 2010. The only catch is that once you log onto the free Wi-Fi, you will be prompted to try Google Chrome and set Google as your default search engine. Fine by me. In fact, it sounds less annoying that current airport Wi-Fi that generally has a gigantic banner somewhere on the screen reminding you that you’re in a wonderful airport waiting to board an H1N1-infested plane.
