|Google To Release Chrome O/S 'Late Fall'|
Google To Release Chrome O/S 'Late Fall' [reuters.com]
|Google expects to release its Chrome computer operating system in the "late fall", a top executive said on Wednesday, as it aims a competitive strike at rival Microsoft's Windows.The Chrome system will designed initially to work on laptop PCs, Sundar Pichai, Google's head of the Chrome project told reporters at the Computex PC show. |
"We will be selective on how we come to market because we want to deliver a great user experience," he said. "We're thinking on both the hardware and software levels."
|Next time you step into a site with malware because you didn't want the browser to 'phone home' to access the safe surfing API and you get hacked, then you'll know what's evil. |
My email is Tbird, the browser is Firefox, and SSH for the server - running on an old winMe desktop used for the internet. Protection is ZA, and an out of date version of AVG. It has never caught anything. My other machine, which handles all the important programs, never goes online.
I realize that there's a different approach, where you let every script and plug-in run, and rely on others for protection, but I'm not that trusting.
If Google plays their cards right and the world leaves Windows and goes with Chrome, then you will not be connected to the Internet directly as you are now. You will go through Google's network and then you will loose the freedom of information we all luv about the Internet.
Yes, the net will become segmented. (more than it is now)
If Google no like you your site not served to users... !
its a bit like AOL's old browser, anyone remember that?
if you wanted mail it was straight to AOL mail. if you wanted music it was straight to AOLs music pages etc.
although Chrome will obviously not be as blatant as AOL used to be, its still a modern-day equivalent.
then you will not be connected to the Internet directly as you are now. You will go through Google's network and then you will loose the freedom of information we all luv about the Internet
they are already trying to make that play right now, and have been for sometime.
I've said it before and i'll say it again, you will have goognet, and the internet.
goog suppors net neutrality just long enough for them to use it to gain contorl over the whole web.
so yes google is ramping up to be the next AOL, only worse..MUCH worse.
