Google: “With Chrome OS, Net access will be in a few seconds” 

,----[ Quote ]
| The product manager Anders Sandholm behind the 
| scenes development of Chrome and Chrome 5 OS. 
| Two programs pursuing the same goal: faster 
| access to Web applications.
| 
| With 40 million users, Chrome is now the third 
| most used browser in the world. A software 
| that Google has managed to impose only a year 
| and a half, thanks to a marketing campaign 
| unprecedented for a browser. This is just the 
| beginning.

Google Chrome Cloud Printing Enables Universal Printing 

,----[ Quote ]
| Perhaps one of the biggest drawbacks of the 
| anticipated Google Chrome OS has been the 
| absence of computer peripherals compatibility. 
| The drivers contained in printer software etc. 
| simply haven't been announced compatible with 
| Google's operating system, requiring printer 
| owners to use Linux or Windows to print pages 
| from the internet. Yesterday though, Google 
| announced a significant step to repair this 
| weakness in their operating system, with the 
| introduction of: Google Chrome Cloud Printing.

Parallels Officially Supports Google Chrome OS

| There’s also a bigger story here: Parallels
| provides the base software foundation for
| many VARs and software developers that are
| deploying SaaS (software as a service)
| applications. Now, that SaaS ecosystem may
| be more inclined to give Google’s Chrome OS
| a look.

Google talks Chrome OS, HTML5, and the future of software

,----[ Quote ]
| I had done my best to sort out the why's
| and wherefore's of Google's first consumer
| OS effort in my initial launch coverage but
| I still had many questions about the past,
| present, and future of the project.

| EB: The way that we've thought about this
| for a while is if you read the Chrome OS
| blog post that we did in July, and you read
| the Chrome browser blog post that we did in
| September in 2008, they're very similar.
| They're essentially the same thing. And the
| reason is because when we were building
| Chrome the browser, we realized that
| everyone is spending their time online. So
| essentially we were trying to build
| something that mimics this operating system
| feel—there's a task manager in Chrome, and
| that was one of the early additions to
| Chrome.
