Category: Google Chrome
Here we go again. The sixth version of Google Chrome, labeled 6.0.401.1, has been just released and can be found at dev channel.
Just like with some previous “major” releases, it has neither significant improvements nor any under the hood changes.
- Don’t prepend scheme on copying an incomplete hostname. (Issue 43585)

It appears that Acer is planning to launch Chrome OS devices at the Computex Taipei show, which is set to take place from June 1st to June 5th.
As Chrome OS was originally designed for Netbooks, we expect a Netbook of some kind. Although Google said many times that OS can run fine on other devices with ARM processors, such as Smartbooks, Tablets, etc.
Currently, Chrome OS is scheduled for 2010 Q2 launch which pairs fine with the upcoming Acer announcement.
