Have you (we) been fooled into believing that Google released “just” a browser? Alhtough it seems like the initial deployment franzy came to a squicking hold, the blog world is still in uproar about Google’s latest release. But maybe we should start to look under the Chrome hood to see if Google’s browser is really more the operating system.
It may not be too obvious to the everyday user (although they probably did not download Chrome in the first place), but most developers probably noticed that the Task Manager inside the Developer menu not only lists each page you have opened and how much memory and processing time it uses but it also lets you end processes just like your Windows Task Manager or any other OS.
Does anybody remember Netscape … ? Just call it ‘Google OS’ already.
