Google Chrome OS

Releasing the Chromium OS open source project

11/19/2009   |    In July we announced that we were working on Google Chrome OS, an open source operating system for people who spend most of their time on the web.

Today we are 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.

China-Google: Search engine censorship row.

February 02, 2010 | CHINA-GOOGLE: China may be a massive potential market for search engine companies, but Google may pull out of the country, in a row over censorship.
