Why Google Chrome OS Matters

Google Chrome, Chrome OS, Chromium… what is it, why is it important? How does Chrome keep gaining browser market share?

Benefits include:

  • Faster web page compilation
  • Light weight, quick startup
  • Tab separated processes
  • Tab management
  • Extensions
  • much more…

Further more, the new Chrome OS is simply a Linux operating system that loads the Chrome browser, where the systems designed to run Chrome OS typically with have specialized firmware for security.

I found an article on JSClasses that goes piece by piece in an almost FAQ format about Chrome OS.

The article explains some expected features Chrome OS will support:

  • Offline content with Chrome OS
  • Unlimited local storage
  • File management
  • External devices such as USB, GPS, Mics, and Web Cams
  • Ability to run non-Web Apps
  • The Chrome Web Store
  • Developers get C++, JavaScript, Flash, and Java
  • Developers ability to sell apps
  • Evolution of HTML5

You should really take a look:

The idea is to move all your data to an online cloud and from any computer / browser / mobile device / Chrome OS, you can perform all of your work, very different from our typical Desktop workstations.
