“Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We’re designing the OS 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. And as we did for the Google Chrome browser, we are 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. It should just work.” – Official Google Blog.
from the battle of the browser, now comes the battle of the operating systems… let’s see how Google live up to it’s hype when they launch their own open-source OS for netbooks next year… this is definitely something to look out for!
