It has hardly been two days since Google announced the Google Chrome OS and now its screenshots have been leaked on the web. Google Chrome OS is based on the Linux kernel and is an open source project that is currently supported by Acer, Asus, Adobe, Freescale, HP, Lenovo, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments.

An anonymous person created a Chrome OS Leak blog and posted screenshots of the private developer beta of the OS. But I suspect that it can be the marketing strategy adopted by many tech firms nowadays. As per the blog post, Google representatives visited the Acer team to show distinct features of the Chrome OS. The Google Chrome OS installation on Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop took about 10 minutes. Here are a few highlights that were shown in the Chrome OS Demo.

The ‘Chrome Bar’ or the task bar, which auto-hides, appears at the bottom of the UI just like Apple Mac OS X’s dock. Navigation is powered with ‘Exploration’ that is like a file explorer, and ‘Browser’, which basically is a web browser with search options. If configured, even the Chrome Bar can feature search bar. Apparently, Google Talk was the only application installed and it had a different logo.


Let us wait for “Chrome Inside” netbooks.
