I am rather curious about this matter. Although Google Chrome OS is an operating system, it is an operating system that consists of only a web browser. It boots you into an enhanced version of Google Chrome and you do what you need to do from there. It has never been done before to my knowledge, and since major browser vendor Google is pushing this project with all that it’s got, Google Chrome OS may very well be here to stay. Who knows, perhaps Opera, Mozilla, or even Microsoft will follow?
For now, however, it is just Google. And Samsung. And Acer. Two of the largest manufacturers of consumer electronics have taken it upon themselves to support Chrome OS, each offering a sleek looking laptop computer running Google’s upcoming operating system. The Samsung laptop will go on sale for $429 with the 3G model costing $499 while the Acer Chromebook will be starting out at $349. Google also announced a unique pricing model for student and business users. They will be able to get their hands on a Chromebook for $20 and $28 per month respectively including both hardware and software.
So, who here is a big fan of Chrome and could see themselves ditching their current operating system to dwell entirely on Chrome? Who here uses another browser as their primary browser but is intrigued by the notion of booting straight into a web browser? Anybody intending to stick to conservative means of browsing?
