Google Chrome OS: first look video

Will browser-based computing kill Windows?

Google's Chrome operating system has taken a big step forward with its release to the open source community. The OS is targeted at netbooks and will be faster, simpler and more secure than existing operating systems, according to Google.

However, Google also made it clear that Chrome will not be able to replicate everything that other operating systems do. For example, Chrome OS will only run web-hosted applications and its peripherals will have to comply with specific hardware reference designs.

See Google Chrome in action on PC Advisor TV.
