Google Chrome OS (Chromium OS) is an open-source project that aims to build an operating system that provides a fast, simple, and more secure computing experience for people who spend most of their time on the web.

Google Chrome OS has been designed from the ground up with security in mind.

Security is not a one-time effort, but rather an iterative process that must be focused on for the life of the operating system.
The goal is that, should either the operating system or the user detect that the system has been compromised, an update can be initiated, and—after a reboot—the system will have been returned to a known good state.
Chromium OS security strives to protect against an opportunistic adversary through a combination of system hardening, process isolation, continued web security improvements in Chromium, secure autoupdate, verified boot, encryption, and intuitive account management.

Web applications with the functionality of desktop applications

Enhanced functionality through HTML 5: offline modes, background processing, notifications, and more.
Better access points and discovery: On Chromium-based browsers, we’ve addressed the access point issue by allowing applications to install shortcuts on your desktop. Similarly, we are using pinned tabs and search as a way to quickly access apps in Chromium OS.
While the tab bar is sufficient to access existing tabs, we are creating a new primary access point that provides a list of frequently used applications and tools.

Search as a primary form of navigation

Chromium’s address bar and the Quick Search Box have simplified the way you access personal content and the web. In Chromium OS, we are unifying the behavior of the two, and exploring how each can be used to make navigation faster and more intuitive.

You need to have Linux. We currently support the following:
· Ubuntu (Hardy 8.04 or newer, Karmic 9.10 recommended)
