Google Chrome for OSX and Linux

Till now the computers have majorly been powered by the variants of three operating systems – Windows, OS X, and Linux. Seeing the dominance of these three OS’s not many companies have tried to come up with a whole new full fledged operating system, but google has been sticking its feet in various industries and has done the same in computer operating system industry too. Google has christened its forthcoming operating system as Google Chrome OS. Google Chrome is an open source operating system which is exclusively designed for users who spend most of their computing time over the internet.

Chrome OS is based on Linux and unlike other OS’s it will not be available for download; instead it will be shipped with PCs of specific hardware configuration by the manufactures who have tied up with Google.

Talking about interface google has laid all the efforts in minimising the Operating System’s load from the machine for faster application functioning. Google is following the basic concept of Chrome browser which is to make maximum space available for work and not to utilise it by OS features itself.

Recently Google has announced that they have updated the user interface of Chrome OS and following are some enhancements:

  • The new updated interface allows users to use Chrome OS without logging into their Google account.
  • An optional sidebar has been added which will show the battery indication, time, Wireless indications etc without consuming large screen space.
  • Till now Google was supporting only SSD hard drives for storage but it has announced that Chrome will also use internet based storage; this will help the users to save more local disk space for other more important things.

The idea behind these updates is to make a browser capable of doing tasks for which people need a complete Operating System. Google is trying to make if not all, then most of the features run online. With Google Chrome OS you don’t need to download and install various applications as they will be available online and will work in a click as if they were locally installed. Google Applications like Google Docs, Google Spreadsheets will be a part of these online applications released with Chrome OS. Google is not asking the Chrome users to change the way they do their stuff, but Google is trying to change the way the Operating System allows you to do that stuff.

As announced by Google a stable release of Chrome OS will be released publically in the second half of year 2010.
