Download Google Chrome OS Source Code | Latest Screen Shots Of Google Chrome OS

Google Chrome OS is the Google’s answer to Windows and Linux based operating systems, although this OS will be based on the Linux operating system and graphical user interface. Chrome OS is for the internet using personals since it will be completely based and work on the internet usages principle.

Google Chrome OS will run on faster Solid-State Drive (SSD) with x86 or ARM processor powered system, with the Chrome-based web browser. This operating system will save user data over internet, minimizing the usages of local hard disk and giving emphasis on the internet.

From the above screenshot, you can check that the web apps in Chrome OS runs in different tabs, much like a web browser. Google provided more information at a special Chrome OS event on Chrome OS features and specifications. Chrome OS will be the first ever operating system which will load up in just 3-4 seconds, it will allow only trusted web applications and system application to run, making your computer more faster and secure respectively.

Being the open source operating system, Google Chrome OS source code is now available at and developers can develop their own Chrome OS using the above source code and following the tutorial on MyDigitalLife. [via]

Releasing the Chromium OS open source project

In July Google announced that They were working on Google Chrome OS, an open source operating system for people who spend most of their time on the web.

Today Google open-sourcing the project as Chromium OS. We are doing this early, a year before Google Chrome OS will be ready for users, because we are eager to engage with partners, the open source community and developers. As with the Google Chrome browser, development will be done in the open from this point on. This means the code is free, accessible to anyone and open for contributions. The Chromium OS project includes our current code base, user interface experiments and some initial designs for ongoing development. This is the initial sketch and we will color it in over the course of the next year.

We want to take this opportunity to explain why we're excited about the project and how it is a fundamentally different model of computing.

First, it's all about the web. All apps are web apps. The entire experience takes place within the browser and there are no conventional desktop applications. This means users do not have to deal with installing, managing and updating programs.

Second, because all apps live within the browser, there are significant benefits to security. Unlike traditional operating systems, Chrome OS doesn't trust the applications you run. Each app is contained within a security sandbox making it harder for malware and viruses to infect your computer. Furthermore, Chrome OS barely trusts itself. Every time you restart your computer the operating system verifies the integrity of its code. If your system has been compromised, it is designed to fix itself with a reboot. While no computer can be made completely secure, we're going to make life much harder (and less profitable) for the bad guys. If you dig security, read the Chrome OS Security Overview or watch the video.

Most of all, we are obsessed with speed. We are taking out every unnecessary process, optimizing many operations and running everything possible in parallel. This means you can go from turning on the computer to surfing the web in a few seconds. Our obsession with speed goes all the way down to the metal. We are specifying reference hardware components to create the fastest experience for Google Chrome OS.

There is still a lot of work to do, and we're excited to work with the open source community. We have benefited hugely from projects like GNU, the Linux Kernel, Moblin, Ubuntu, WebKit and many more. We will be contributing our code upstream and engaging closely with these and other open source efforts.

Google Chrome OS will be ready for consumers this time next year. Sign up for updates or if you like building your operating system from source, get involved at

Lastly, here is a short video that explains why we're so excited about Google Chrome OS.
