The quick overlook of Google Chrome OS and Google itself !!


Ok let’s go way back when Google was just a search engine company partnering with Yahoo to get their funds. Whoever thought Google would come this far? EVERYONE!! The day when our Bill Gates failed to notice what this thing called Internet is all about was when people have realized that the Web is the next big thing to happen to computer after the birth of computer.

        Now let’s look at your life and imagine what you do most of the time. We try to find the answer. Even when I asked you to imagine, you were searching for answers. Search is one of the most frequent thing that humans or any living beings do. And Google as being a search engine had a strong base already and being a sole search engine back in those days played a huge role in Google’s development.


        With the increase in the websites and improvement in Web came the increase to search more. The more things you have, the more you have to dig through to find. Microsoft didn’t realize that until they started the whole Live Search campaign. But Google was already ahead of the game with the search engine. It took the advantage of the web and made those web apps to synchronize your life perfectly. All you needed was a browser to let you synchronize everything. But it’s not just the computer that people wants to be synchronized. People are always on a move and always communicating with one another with their cell phones. There hadn’t been any laptop small enough to be carried in your pocket and make phone calls at the same time. Hence Google entered the mobile world with their Android OS. But Android still needed a browser in their new OS and right then came the new browser of Chrome. A perfect tool of Google to synchronize everything at anytime. You do your word processing on browser, you organize your work in browser, you chat in your browser, you socialize in browser, you listen to the music in browser, you watch movies in browser, you play games in browser.

From the look of it, it is not surprising that your whole point of starting a computer is to start your favorite browser and surf the web cause almost everything you needed was there..except those big games (in future those also might just come true)

For a normal people virtually everything was on the internet. With just a Gmail account you had various services for free which you would have to buy. So how does Google earn money?? Advertisement!! Google took great advantage of them, After that successful campaign Google started taking over certain services and sites that has potentially changed the Web including Youtube and Grand Central. I won’t be surprised to see if Youtube is the TV Station and Google Voice aka Grand Central to be the phone service of Chrome OS. The offline version of Google apps were all the clues of this thing to come.

So the Google Chrome OS was nothing much of surprise for me. Sooner or later it was bound to happen and today was the day that Google officially announced it.

What’s next?

The computer which if just connected to Internet has entire OS on the Web. Sounds impossible…that’s what people said when The Wright Brothers wanted to fly on a wooden object.


Google Chrome OS is set to launch somewhere in the mid of 2010.

A big blow to Microsoft?? Not quite, Microsoft is also working on their new browser/OS called Gazelle. So let’s see when Microsoft will announce their browser/OS.
