Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We’re designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web.

Google has invited the OS king Microsoft in the battle field by introducing this open source project. Microsoft is still struggling in the Search Business, but what about OS?

According to the geek stuff, people are speculating that following are advantages of Google Chrome OS:

  • Open Source
  • Netbooks are relatively cheaper
  • Speed
  • Security
  • Portability
  • Compatibility
  • Simplicity

But the some of the points were same for the MAC, but had Apple succeeded in it? No, coz still there are majority of users who prefer Windows, no matter that Apple’s MAC is being used in servers over security purposes.

The only features that had maintained Microsoft to the top level are comfort and compatibility and this help them again in achieving the same success again.
