Google announced this morning that they will be launching an operating system named Chrome that could potentially challenge Microsoft’s dominance of the PC operating system market.
Chrome may sound familiar to you as it’s the same name Google chose for its fast, easy to use web browser which I happen to be a big fan of.
This statement from Google’s blog hit a chord with me, no doubt because it’s based on customer feedback that Google has collected:
We hear a lot from our users and their message is clear â€” computers need to get better. People want to get to their email instantly, without wasting time waiting for their computers to boot and browsers to start up. They want their computers to always run as fast as when they first bought them. They want their data to be accessible to them wherever they are and not have to worry about losing their computer or forgetting to back up files. Even more importantly, they don’t want to spend hours configuring their computers to work with every new piece of hardware, or have to worry about constant software updates. And any time our users have a better computing experience, Google benefits as well by having happier users who are more likely to spend time on the Internet.
Amen. All hail Chrome!
