The Google Chrome Operating System
Google not only dominates the search engine world but now is developing an operating system (OS) for personal computers. In what is seen as a direct challenge to market leader Microsoft and its Windows operating system, Google Chrome OS will be aimed initially at small, low-cost netbooks, but will eventually be used on PCs as well.
Google said netbooks with Chrome OS could be on sale by the middle of 2010. “Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS,” the firm said in its official blog. The operating system, which will run on an open source licence, was a “natural extension” of its Chrome browser, the firm said.
