Google Chrome Operating System

Google made a daring attempt to challenge Windows with its latest invention, Google Chrome OS (Operating System).

The new OS will be an open source operating system that will first hit the netbook (smaller than laptops) market and slowly make its way to desktop, Google official said.

Google claims that the new operating system will be up and running on netbooks starting in the second half of next year.

It will be “light and easy” and web browsing friendly.

Google OS adapts the same techniques of Google Chrome for its speed, simplicity and security.

“We’re designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds,” Google explains.

“The user interface is mininal to allow greater emphasis on web browsing,” Google adds.

Nonetheless, Google pledges to make security issue their top priority and decides to start from scratch with the basic redesigning of security architecture.

By doing so, users will fuss no more against virus, spyware and malware threads.

Chrome OS will be running on x86-based PCs, as well as machines built around the ARM processor (such as the so-called smartbooks or netbook).



As far as we know, Windows is still a widely used OS in the world.

Could this be the stepping stone to the end of Microsoft's dominance over the OS industry?
