Google Chrome Os ?


mahesh2k

chrome as an osi think its going to be a big nothing
google is good in web services but when it comes for os and all
win is the best or linux
but google
no ways


And what is your way of thinking that noways for google ? We're using many of their products on operating system as well as on web. They are using linux as base for their operating system. You're commenting without knowing a bit about them. Have you gone through their screenshots ? I can understand that google's os will be totally for online usage. But based on linux makes them as competent as windows. And how come windows is best ? Have you ever used operating system other than windows ?

Offtopic: I think you don't like how Google works They are very good system at all. They have very simple design on every page (not including the Gmail ) but they have very powerful servers and scripting. As i know most parts of Google are written in Perl.Hmmm, i don't know why the free product,PHP is not used for good websites,like Google or MSN.As you can see some pages end with .pl because they forgot to rename them to index.pl and add them to other directory Sorry if i am wrong but most of Google pages are hidden in directory or subdomain,for example instead of google.com/mail.pl they are using mail.google.com on some help pages they use

 

google.com/example/example.pl And i am trying to hide the extension of my page because it is more simple to remember mypage.com/something/

 

then the filename with it's extension. Ontopic: Do somebody know what is the difference between gOS and Google Chrome Os?I found them both,but i can't see difference.Are they maybe different version?I found one picture with screen shot of gOS and i think it is very bad looking,they need to do something with the design and the full OS.Hope they will be normally used,because if Google Chrome OS is used very much,anti-virus companies will start making anti-viruses for Google Chrome OS,and to get money they are gonna make new viruses.

But if you look at Google's other software products IE "Google Chrome" It caught up with Firefox. That means it passed Opera, Safari etc in a matter of months.
We will just have to wait and see I guess.

I wouldn't say that it "passed" Opera... can't say much about Safari because I don't use it on a computer. (A better term would be that it "caught up in a matter of months," which is very impressive. Then again, look at the company footprint of Google.)

I use Opera as my "backup browser" (... that just sounds silly) and as my reach out to try something new, and I really like it. The only thing that keeps me from using it all the time as a competitive alternative is that the last time I used it, GMail was having wicked issues with Opera, and things were just SLOW. I'm actually very glad that it is a viable alternative to FireFox, though.

I tried Google Chrome back in the beta stages and although I do love the sand-boxing technique, I personally haven't had a lot of crashing going on with FireFox as much as I used to when it was in the infancy of its 2.0 release. (I actually can't remember it crashing... watch it crash on me now. ) What I do remember about Google Chrome, specifically, was its Fisher-Price-looking baby-blue theme that turned me off very quickly and got me back into FireFox with my at-least-decent-looking default theme skinned with WindowBlinds. I'm sure that's changed now, which is why I'll be back to play with Chrome a bit more to see whether it's a viable alternative to FireFox or not (which I'm sure it is).

I think most people like Google Chrome though because of its Looks and Speed & Security such as Firefox. All Though Google Chrome does not currently have an Addon's site like FireFox or IE I think they will be developing such a site once they have finished there OS.The only reason I like the Chrome Browser is the Look and Speed. I like the Tabs at the top no menu bar etc and I sometimes find it is faster than Firefox which is great.

I'm actually running it right now (as I figured I'd give it a test run again) and I like and don't like it.First impressions had me disappointed with the same baby blue Fisher Price theme, but I was very glad to find out that you can now change your theme VERY easily in "real-time" without a restart. The way that Google omitted the command toolbar and put everything to the right with the two drop-down menus is still a nice touch... still. I like how the status bar only comes up when it's required. All this, so far, shaves off valuable real estate on the browser, which makes it "feel" bigger, even though in all reality, you only shaved off maybe 20-30 pixels. The feel of browsing feels a tad peppier, which is nice. Nice to see that sandboxing is still in effect. I don't like how you can't re-open a tab you may have accidentally closed (or do I just not know how to?), but I love the history and how it's displayed. The location bar is very intuitive and I can search as well as go to my frequent sites without too much trouble; Firefox has a bit of a lag when it realizes that you typed in a search term instead of a URL. I like how the downloads work out of the box, reminding me of DownloadStatusBar for Firefox.However, there are a few glaring issues that will bring me back to Firefox after I finish using this Chrome session. Ironically, GMail STILL has issues displaying in a browser that I'm trying out... and for it to be slower in Chrome than Firefox is an irony that I have to question. Sometimes my CPU becomes so taxed for some reason that Chrome will become unresponsive for seconds at a time, then when switching tabs, will do a slow "fill" downward to view the page. (After the "fill," it performs normally.) I like how the tabs resize themselves when you close ones you don't need, but I don't like how Chrome tries to fit all the tabs you have open in the available space instead of shoving them off to the side like Firefox does and adding an arrow to scroll through them. (It makes it impossible to figure out what tabs are open when you're busy middle-clicking, but I'm sure this only affects the few weird people that do that sort of thing. )I know I have only tried this browser for a good five hours, but so far, it's not enough to make me switch. However, I have to commend Google for a pretty good browser "right out of the box" and would encourage others to give it a whirl. Obviously, people like it (or are just under Google's vats drinking the Kool-Aid), so maybe it has more credit than I give it. Also, keep in mind that I'm biased towards Firefox anyway, but gave this one a go, so your mileage may vary.Addendum: Google Chrome does NOT play well on an older machine. I'm running a 2.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM on Windows XP SP3 and even though these specs aren't too shabby, Chrome just started to crawl badly enough to the point where it was unusable (long unresponsive periods of time, slow response to scrolling, etc.). It's like the longer this thing runs, the slower it gets. Again, YMMV.

Do somebody know what is the difference between gOS and Google Chrome Os?I found them both,but i can't see difference.

There is no difference between these two as people are just confusing with it. There is no difference between the google os and google chrome os. You can even ask about this on some of the google help forums on google groups. You can even ask this question to the chromium developers group on google groups. You'll get the same answer that they're same.

I can't wait until the OS is released! Does anyone know an official release date. I'm definitely going to try it.

The google chrome os? wow I am surprised with the way that google want to compete with microsoft that is a crazy and I personally have never downloaderd the google chrome browser why? because i dont care ok there are firefox and there is no better browser than firefox. I think google want to shock a giant microsoft and they maybe abuse of the free things to make people to take a look of its products but with a os? there are a lot of riskies for start there are a new market and that is great, but I think that no Macintosh could get neither 35% of the pc?s in the world, google chrome is far away to do that. Linux the stupid os that doesn?t work correctly have a lot of people that use it and at the end prefers windows with all its imperfections but windows is the best os in the planet until these days. Google have a lot of money to create new products but an os maybe is not the best option. I think that google maybe can create an antivirus software or something that millions of people who use the internet maybe test it. But I personally dont have any intention to format my hard drive or make a second partition to test a google chrome OS that only offer me the same or maybe less than Windows. Please if you are emotionated by this new I only have to tell you that in two months when you maybe have to format your pc and lose all the data will remember my words about this software. Don?t change your elections for a publish campaign, and if you do that don?t say that I didn?t warn you.

Wait, its called android. Not google OS?


 

An android is a robot[1] or synthetic organism[2] designed to look and act like a human. The word derives from ινδĎĎĎ, the genitive of the Greek ÎąÎ˝ÎŽĎ anÄr, meaning "man", and the suffix -eides, used to mean "of the species; alike" (from eidos, "species"). Though the word derives from a gender-specific root, its usage in English is usually gender neutral. The term was first mentioned by St. Albertus Magnus in 1270[3] and was popularized by the French writer Villiers in his 1886 novel L'ďż˝ve future, although the term "android" appears in US patents as early as 1863 in reference to miniature human-like toy automatons.[4]

 

Thus far, androids have largely remained within the domain of science fiction, frequently seen in film and television. However, some humanoid robots now exist.

 

The term "droid", invented by George Lucas in Star Wars (1977) but now used widely within science fiction, originated as an abbreviation of "android", but has been used by Lucas and others to mean any robot, including distinctly non-humaniform machines like R2-D2. Another abbreviation, "andy", coined as a pejorative by writer Phillip K. *BLEEP* in his novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, has seen some limited further currency

Google Chrome is not supported by me because they caused alot of problems. I would rather just type google.com . Is it so hard? Google Chrome doesn't let me watch Youtube videos so meh....

I believe you i don't need to ask on Google help forums.I didn't know what the diference is,but thanks for your answer.That says that Google Chrome OS is very bad,because gOS desktop i saw wasn't that much good.So this reply make few sad faces to me Hope they will change the design , but as i saw in the magazine , this OS will be good.OK , what they will do is theirs work we can comment how much we want for this OS and that will be indexed in their searching engine

Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we're already talking to partners about the project, and we'll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.

Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web. And as we did for the Google Chrome browser, we are going back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates. It should just work.

I took a look at the interfacing on google OS. It looks like a failed cross between mac osx and puppy linux IMO


ahmed_mmahmoud

IF IF IF google will lunch an OS work with common PC (not just new execlusive motherboards of it) i think it will WIPE microsoft and linux os'


ahmed_mmahmoud

i just face a drivers problem in chrome os specially that i'm not a user of linux which will hard to me to over come the new os system


Kamina

I'll stick with linux.

I have little to no doubt that Chrome OS will be faster than Windows. However, I'm still skeptical on cloud computing. I'll probably wait awhile before I install this on my machine. Also, since Chrome OS will be implementing the idea of cloud computer, I am assuming that it will be geared towards laptops/netbooks as compared to desktops, although desktops could also be included.

Yes. sony already shipped few sets of netbooks with google chrome installed in it. only concern that people have about such cloud OS is that they want to do offline work and not want to tie themselves to any service for snopping their files and activity. Google is known for such activity so even if they offer faster they are lacking privacy and assurance to users.

I don't think google chrome os is faster than linux. i think linux is most real time os you can find. as you see for developer boards based on arm cortex a8 processor they prefer using a linux distibution (named angstrom) because linux is more real time meaning that sending a hardware interrupt to the computer for doing something (like ringing the alarms) will take a little time compared to non real time oss so i think chrome will never take place of linux because their goals are different but for windows i agree with mahesh2k. the lack of privacy in such os is the main problem.
