I've been using Chrome exclusively for several months now. I love it. It's FAR faster than Explorer. I've tried Firefox a few times and I've never cared for it.
I'm with you, Aedes. Chrome is now my new browser. It's so nicely streamlined, no BS, just fast browsing.
I can't wait for the new Google OS coming out. If it's as streamlined as Google's other products, I'm definitely going to click install.
so now i read that they are creating an operating system for use on netbooks, whatever those are (technology is passing me up it is going so fast). i assume they mean for internet accessible mobile phones and those little pocket calculator sized things? supposed to be plans for the near future to become competitive with Windows.
The operating system they're creating is not just for netbooks, it's for every type of computer. Netbooks are simply smaller laptops that are really only good for browsing the, you guessed it, net. If they're recommending their operating system for netbooks, it's probably because their operating system won't have the initial support (for programs, games, etc.) that Mac and Win currently have. It's probably going to be a fast, sleek OS primarily used by those that wish to browse the net or perform other simple processes.
EDIT: Google Chrome OS: Web Platform To Rule Them All -- InformationWeek
There are other reasons for them targeting netbooks. The OS is supposed to be very simple: Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. So, even though it does support x86 architectures, there's probably no point putting this OS on a giant gaming PC or something similar.
