Google plans Chrome-based Web operating system

Written by Daniel

That Google operating system rumor is coming true--and it's based on Google's browser, Chrome.

The company announced Google Chrome OS on its blog Tuesday night, saying lower-end PCs called Netbooks from unnamed manufacturers will include it in the second half of 2010. Linux will run under the covers of the open-source project, but the applications will run on the Web itself. [Front page...]

So, Google are going to take a Linux distro and add their Chrome browser to it? And this is news?

Just for kicks, installed the Fedora Chromium repo and installed it.

Massive step forward from the Wine wrapped chromium, performance is finally there, noticeably more than Firefox 3.5. Memory usage is... good! CPU usage... good too. Only about 15 minutes into it mind you. Will see how it handles some other things.
