Google showed off an update of its forthcoming Chrome OS operating system at its headquarters in Silicon Valley today.
The whole point of the operating system — meant for simple computers and launching in about a year — is that it’s based on a Web browser, so don’t get too excited. It looks like a Web browser.
And it actually looks pretty good. We’re curious to see how the Apple tablet pans out, but if we ever had to buy a netbook, we’d seriously consider one running Chrome OS as opposed to Windows.
