Google Chrome OS screenshots appear online

Google Chrome OSImages that it's claimed are Google Chrome OS screenshots have surfaced online. But are they the genuine article? We help you decide for yourself.

Ever since Google announced it would be entering the OS space last month, the web has been alight with speculation as to what the operating system would both look and feel like, and even raising the question of if an operating system from Google was even needed.

A number of Google Chrome OS screenshots have since surfaced online - on Electronista - claiming to offer a glimpse at what the upcoming operating system may look like.

The images reveal an overall minimal interface, including a Mac OS X-style dock at the top of the screen offering easy access to a number of Google services such as Gmail, YouTube, and Google Reader.
