Google Chrome OS After the First Look

Copyright of LifehackerGoogle released their first look at the new operating system that is to come out from their service. The name of the operating system will be called Google Chrome OS after their first release of browser which was called Google Chrome. First look at their operating sytem was throughout the internet including Lifehacker, a popular technology blog. Their article on First Glimpse at Google Chrome OS is still in their first three popular posts on any page of the website. There is also a video posted in the site concluding their question: What is Google Chrome OS.
Although the source code was released today, it is said by the developers that it will take about an year from today to be out for public. They also would tend the hardware manufacturers to make netbook with larger keyboards, mousepads and resolution to gasp anyone in public. It is to be fast, seven second boot time was recorded by the developers.

As Lifeharker has recorded:
  • Utilizing multi-core CPUs and graphics chips for Chrome: Your web browsing, video playing, and other activities inside Chrome OS' main browser will get a boost from hardware normally reserved for gaming and traditional applications.
  • Chrome (browser) on Chrome (OS) will be faster: Faster than how it runs on your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer, anyways, because it's been re-tooled for this OS.
  • There are no "traditional" applications: "Every application," according to Chrome's project head, "is a web application. There are no conventional applications. (Whatever you use), it's a webapp, it's a link, it's a URL."
  • Anyone can log in and use any Chrome OS netbook: Since Chrome OS will presumably be tied to your Google account, you could easily jump on a friend's netbook and log in for your own email, documents, and other stuff.
  • Everything you use is online: You probably guessed that—Gmail, Google Docs, Calendar, and other apps have had offline abilities for some time. But even the small notepad application in Chrome, and your particular Wi-Fi and system settings, are backed up to your Google account as well. You'll be able to store data offline using HTML 5's capabilities—but, then, you can do that with Firefox or Safari as well.
