Google Chrome OS

Google Chrome is a browser.  Google Chrome OS will be an operating system that is essentially a browser.

This is an interesting development because when I teach teachers about new technologies, many (probably most) of the problems they encounter stem from the older, underlying operating system technology.  Often the problems stem from browser incompatibility or microphones/webcams not working or missing plug-ins, etc, and not the web application itself!

Over time I think this approach (if not Google Chrome OS itself) will take off.

  1. There are similar projects, like Jolicloud (http://www.jolicloud.com/). Not purely browser-based, but Internet oriented.
