Google plans Web operating system

Posted: July 8, 2009 in internet, Technology

Google is set to take cloud computing to a whole new level. As long rumoured, Google is planning to launch its own operating system, based on its Chrome broswer.

Google made the announcement on its blog on Tuesday night and says it be available for consumers in netbooks in the second half of 2010. The open source project will run on Linux under the hood but the applications will be web-based and run on any standards-based browser in Windows, Mac and Linux. Said Google:

“The operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no Web … we’re announcing a new project that’s a natural extension of Google Chrome–the Google Chrome Operating System. It’s our attempt to rethink what operating systems should be.”
