Google introduced its web browser application, Google Chrome which faced stiff competition from the already established applications like the Internet Explorer and Mozilla’s Firefox. Even though it was new, because of its user friendly interface it gained recognition and got positive responses. Now, Google have announced its new operating system, though the release date is still sketchy, it is due to release sometime in 2010.
Google Chrome OS is an open source and a lightweight operating system which will initially be targeted only for netbooks. Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the latter half of 2010. The OS as told by Google should be extremely light and fast, allowing the users an extremely quick start up and onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of the way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web. As was done for the Google Chrome browser, Google is going back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don’t have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates
