Google Chrome OS a main Competitor of windows XP

There has been an interesting nine months since we launched Google Chrome browser. Already more than 30 million people use it regularly. We've designed Google Chrome for people who live on the Internet - searching for information, check your email for news, shopping, or just keep in touch with friends. But the operating systems that run on browsers were designed in an era where there was no net. So today we announce a new project, which is a natural extension of Google Chrome - Google Chrome OS. It is our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.

Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that initially will be on the Netbook. Later this year we will open source its code and Netbook runs Google Chrome OS will be available to consumers in the second half of 2010. Since we are already talking with partners about the project and we will soon be working with the open source community and we wanted to share our vision now that everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.

Speed, usability and security are important aspects of the Google Chrome OS. We design the operating system to be quickly and easily, to boot up and get out on the web for a few seconds. The UI is minimal stay in the road, and most of the user is online. And as we did for the Google Chrome browser, we go back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS, so users do not have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates. It should just work.

Google Chrome OS will run on both x86 and ARM chips and we are working with several OEMs to bring a number Netbook on the market next year. Software architecture is simple - Google Chrome running in a win because on top of a Linux kernel. For application developers is the Web platform. All web-based applications automatically, and new applications can be written using your favorite web technologies. And of course, these applications will run not only for Google Chrome OS, but in any standards-based browser for Windows, Mac and Linux that gives developers biggest users of all platforms.

Google Chrome OS is a new project, separate from Android. Android was designed from the beginning to work for a variety of devices from phones to set-top boxes for Netbook. Google Chrome OS is designed for people who spend most of their time on the Internet and is designed to operate computers ranging from small Netbook for full-size desktop systems. Although there are areas in which Google Chrome and the Android OS overlap, we believe that elections will drive innovation for the benefit of everyone, including Google.

We hear a lot from our users and the message is clear - machines need to be better. People will come to your e-mail immediately, without wasting time waiting for his computer to boot up, and readers can begin. They want their computers to always run as fast as when they first bought them. They want the data to be available to them wherever they are and not be afraid to lose or forget your computer to back up files. More importantly, they do not want to spend hours to configure your computer to work with any new piece of hardware or the need to worry about the constant software updates. And any time our users a better computing experience, Google benefits from having happy users are more likely to spend time on the Internet.

We have much to do and we certainly will need much help from the open source community to achieve this vision. We're excited for what will come, and we hope you too. Follow for more updates in the autumn and have a wonderful summer.
