Google Announces “Google Chrome Operating System”
After the recent release of Google Chrome, a new browser by Google, it has now formally announced a new operating system: The Google Chrome OS. Nope it hasn’t been released yet. According to the Google’s Official Blog, Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers by the second half of 2010.
How is it different? Google’s highlights for their new OS are the following: speed, simplicity and security. Google’s OS is being designed to suit and power laptops and PCs, just like any other OS we are familiar with. It is now coordinating with several OEMs to partner Google Chrome Operating System with a number of laptops and PC manufacturers.
Good thing about this news is that Google are now trying to design an Operating System with all the basics yet improving the system of security to protect users from continuous dealing with malware, viruses and insecure internet browsing.
Let’s wait and see about that.
I’ve been using Google Chrome the moment I’ve heard of its release. The experience is pretty much what you’ll get from any other browser. I am a big user of Mozilla. And now I’m a user of Google Chrome as well.
I haven’t really got around studying some of its functions or features but for a simple minded user like me, I like the minimalistic look. It opens up fast and I can type my search terms or keywords in the address bar and it automatically pulls up the Google search engine results. (For some reasons when I do that in Mozilla, it pulls up a Yahoo Search Results page).
What I basically like about Google is that it lets you browse “incognito” letting you surf the net with no cookies saved on your computer, especially if you are checking page rankings or doing some searches, it reduces getting “spam-messages-please-enter-the-captcha” page from Google. You usually get this “spam-enter-captcha-messages” from Google when you are logged-in to your account and you are browsing repetitiously with the Google search engine.
There are some SEO plugin tweaks available from Chrome Fans forum that you can use in Google Chrome all you have to do is add those plugins as a bookmark. Currently I use PageRank Status Checker, YouTube downloader and Highlight No Follow Links plugins. You can view some of the other plugins you can use here.
