Google Introduces Google Chrome OS, Coming in 2010

We all have heard lots of news about "Google Chrome OS" which is a new Operating system currently being developed by Google.

It would be open source OS and would focus on simplicity, security and speed. It'll run on both x86 and ARM chips. It'll run within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel.

Now the good news is that Google has introduced Google Chrome OS to public. According to Google, Google Chrome OS is a natural extension of Google Chrome web browser. It's Google's 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 Google 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. The OS has been designed to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web. Google is completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates.

Google Chrome OS will run on both x86 as well as ARM chips. The software architecture is simple - Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. For application developers, the web is the platform. All web-based applications will automatically work and new applications can be written using your favorite web technologies. And of course, these apps will run not only on Google Chrome OS, but on any standards-based browser on Windows, Mac and Linux thereby giving developers the largest user base of any platform.

Google Chrome OS is a new project, separate from Android. Android was designed from the beginning to work across a variety of devices from phones to set-top boxes to netbooks. Google Chrome OS is being created for people who spend most of their time on the web, and is being designed to power computers ranging from small netbooks to full-size desktop systems.
