Google Introduced New Browser: Google Chrome OS

Google Chrome OSAn upcoming lightweight and an open-source operating system that will dominate the browser market today, that announced by Google. They name it as Google Chrome OS which is the natural extension of their previously released browser, Google Chrome. Google designed Google Chrome for people who live on the web, searching for information, checking email, catching up on the news, shopping or just staying in touch with friends. However, the operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web. That is why, Google announced a new project that's a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System. It's our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be. Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. With Chrome OS, Google plans to follow the same formula it used with its browser. Chrome OS will run on x86-based PCs, as well as machines built around the ARM processor. I’ve heard in the past there has been some speculation that Google would develop its own operating system, but I think that Chrome's launch makes one thing is clear. The Web browser is Google's operating system. Users want their computers to always run as fast as when they first bought them. They want their data to be accessible to them wherever they are and not have to worry about losing their computer or forgetting to back up files. Even more importantly, they don't want to spend hours configuring their computers to work with every new piece of hardware, or have to worry about constant software updates. And any time users have a better computing experience, Google benefits as well by having happier users who are more likely to spend time on the Internet.
