Google launches salvo at Microsoft – Chrome OS

Google announced the launch of Chrome OS. It will run on both x86 and ARM chips
on netbooks. It will be available in the second half of 2010.

They say most operating systems we use today were designed in an era where there was no web. Therefore, they are going to design an OS that embraces the web – a natural platform for browsers like Google Chrome and Firefox.

Google suggests that although the new OS will share some features with Android, they want the market to decide which OS will ultimately win. The exciting news is the OS will be available as an open source product.
