Before nine months Google launched the Chrome Web browser and over 30 million people in the world use it regularly. Just now Google announced that they would be introducing their new Chrome Operating System which will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010.
Google Chrome OS is a new project which is separate from Android. Android was designed from the beginning to work across a variety of devices from phones to set-top boxes to net books. While Google Chrome is designed for people who live on web like checking mails, searching for information, shopping, catching up on news or staying with friends.
The Web will be a central part of the new operating system and it demonstrates the importance of supplying a strong browser experience. Google's work on the Chrome browser will carry over into the new OS.
The key features of Google Chrome OS are security, speed and simplicity. The new OS will run on both x86 as well as ARM chips. In the long term, Google expects that Chrome OS will work anywhere from small net books to full size desktop machines.
Google executives told that Google Chrome OS would be available online "later this year" as a free, open-source download, while specially customized net books running the operating system are targeted for the second half of 2010.
There will be a tough competition between Microsoft and Google and Apple will also be affected by Google's move into this space. The ultimate goal of Google seems to be the same target market as Apple and it is specifically shooting for ease of use and accessibility. To see more information click here.
