A Review of Chrome OS

Google Chrome OS was unveiled yesterday and everyone was excited. Google released the source code of Chrome OS and the Developer build for preview. Many people read through the documentation and compiled the source to test Chrome OS. I thought to give Chrome OS a try and review it - the features, interface and speed. I tested the Developer build and made a small 4 minute video showing Chrome OS, right from booting to all menus. This will give you an idea of what Chrome OS is like and give you the feel of it, so you need not spend your time figuring out how to get Chrome OS running.

Booting is pretty fast on netbooks, might take a few seconds longer on virtual machines. When booted, you have to login with your Google account and then Chrome browser loads with some extra information like Time, Battery, Internet connectivity and few options. That’s it! Everything else is in the cloud.
