    A guy working in a company that supplies laptop parts to Acer claims that he has released the first ever screenshots of Google’s new Chrome OS.



    Here is a quick look at some of the major features he noticed in the Chrome OS. For more read his blog.

    The OS installation was performed on a Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop.

    The install from Vista to Google Chrome OS Dev Beta was only 10 minutes and was very elegant. Only one restart required.

    Google at the moment installed only the Google Talk application.

    This beta was extremely stripped down. However, it was amazingly fast.

    There is a button on the Chrome Bar that is basically the blue center of the chrome logo. This button pulls up a Start Menu clone essentially.

    There is a clock on the Chrome Bar. It is very stationary and looks very plain.

    The icons are large but can be shrunk and grown to your preference much alike the dock in a Mac.

    The Chrome Bar also auto hides. It can be brought back up by the Windows key and Space.

    The navigation uses two options. “Exploration” or “Browser”. Explanation is much alike the Windows Explorer.

    In addition a search bar can be implemented on the Chrome Bar.

    But chrome OS itself is not a fake.

    Google is making an OS based on Linux Kernel which is designed for netbooks for the ARM and x86 architecture and has a CUSTOM WINDOW MANAGER and web apps (needs an internet connection to run - kinda like gOS but much lighter).

    The word ARM means Google wants to be the first vendor to target nVidia Tegra 8)
