A Peek At The Chrome OS

Can’t wait for the first computers with this operating system:

Internet search giant Google has lifted the lid on its operating system, known as Chrome OS…

All programmes are designed to run in a web browser and all the user’s data is stored on Google’s servers.

Engineers from the firm said the first computers running the system would be available before the end of 2010…

The firm has designed the system around its Chrome browser…

All programmes or applications – such as word processing and email – run in different tabs in the browser.

“There are no conventional desktop applications,” said Mr Pichai. “That means you don’t have to install or update software.”

“It’s just a browser; a browser with a few modifications.”

Mr Pichai said the system was based around speed, simplicity and security.
He showed it booting up in seven seconds.

“We’re working very, very, very hard to make that time shorter,” he said.
