Download Google Chrome Beta

| Last week, the Mountain View-based search giant 
| upgraded the Google Chrome Beta channel to 
| version, introducing extensions for 
| both the Windows and Linux flavors of the 
| browser. 


Google Chrome OS Initial Review

,----[ Quote ]
| In terms of aesthetics, the OS keeps very much 
| out of the way. With all of the use being upon 
| the web, you have no need for taskbars or 
| anything of the sort, meaning all of your 
| screen space is yours, unlike on windows where 
| you have taskbars or OS X where you have docks 
| and such things. However, for the little that 
| it does offer, it is not bad, to tell the 
| truth. Overall a fairly good looking 
| environment to work in.



Five Web-Centric Alternatives to Google Chrome OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite Googleâs move into the operating
| system (OS) space, the idea of a primarily
| cloud-centric OS is nothing revolutionary; the
| earliest examples date back to 1999. And
| although numerous other attempts at developing
| Web-centric OSesn none up to this point have
| truly broken into the mainstream. But some
| current offerings present welcome alternatives
| to mainstream operating systems, packing in
| useful features and making it easier to access
| your online content.


Building ChromeOS on Gentoo


Who do you trust with your data ?!

,----[ Quote ]
| The operating system will essentially be your
| Google Chrome browser and little else. Any
| data you need to save will be held on Google's
| servers somewhere in the world. Would you be
| happy with this arrangement ?. I expect that
| when you first load up the new OS or very soon
| thereafter, you will be asked to tick a box
| agreeing to their terms before you can proceed
| further in setting up your account. This is
| the bit where you will sign your digital life
| away to an organisation you will have to place
| your total trust in.


Just Today: Download of VMware Image of Google Chrome OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has prepared its Chromium OS, alias

| intall if from source code will find a
| functioning VMware image from Linux Magazine
| Online.

Want That Early Chrome OS Build? You Got It.

| Frederickson has placed the files he downloaded
| a few days ago on a Rapidshare account for
| anyone to access. You can find them here.
| Will Google be pleased about this? Probably not,
| considering they removed the files from the
| Chromium folder shortly after our post. But
| whatever, it's open source, yo.
