Google Chrome OS Information, reviews and screenshots

Recently Google has showed off the features of their upcoming Operating System, Google Chrome OS or Chromium OS. This is another Operating System which users can use to work with application software, just Like Mocrosoft Windows - XP, vista, Windows7 etc.

However Chrome uses Cloud Computing, which it is run through the Internet and No softwares installed within user PC. This is a new idea and most viewed that it is a reaching highest point of web based applications.

The code for Google OS is now open for developers and can see what is all about this new operating system that is to be launched in next year.

Many guys in the Google and tech. arena says that they expecting the release of Chromium OS before March 2010. However the release of Windows 7 OS by Microsoft has slowed down the interest to Chrome OS during past weeks. People getting to say that Windows 7 is the best OS so far and Microsoft also assured that it will be better than trouble making Vista OS.

Google Chrome is mainly focus on three things which are:
1. Speed
2. Ease of Use
3. Simplicity

According to demonstrations by the Google itself and other tech heads, Google OS is based on Chrome browser. When you log in to Chrome OS it first opens the Chrome Browser and lets you manipulate around it.

Here are some screenshots of Chrome OS:

ZDnet says ;
That's what's happened already. The version of Chrome OS we tested — more accurately, Chromium OS, following Google's convention for distinguishing supported versions of its browser from preliminary versions — was built by third parties from the source available just after midnight on Friday 20 November, packaged as a VMware VMDK image and let loose on the web. We imported it into a VirtualBox host under Ubuntu 9.10: the image ran at 800 by 600 pixels, which couldn't be changed. We also tried it with a range of available memory, from 256MB to1GB, and found no change in speed, although opening lots of browser instances at the lower memory setting was a reliable way to provoke a crash.

The default startup screen is the Chrome browser, with all the features of the version available on Windows, Mac and Linux. The menu bar has largely gone.

The task switcher called up by F12 expands multiple tags when the mouse hovers over a browser instance. Here, one browser has four tabs, one has one, and the third is running a JavaScript application. The folder with a '+' on it launches new instances.
