"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." ---Google

Google changed the world. It made things easier, made lives lighter. One click on the search engine and everything you need is right in front of you. Call it spoon feeding but who wouldn’t want an easier access to things? From a search engine, to a browser and now an OS. Coming very soon is Google’s latest project, the Chrome OS. Speaking of the Chrome OS, what’s the drama behind this new thing? Will it make computers and laptops faster? Will it give people different web experience? Let AllWeLike help you with the questions that bug your brain about Chrome OS.

So, what is Chrome OS?

Chrome OS is Google’s venture on the operating system platform. It’s a forthcoming operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications and based on the open source Chromium OS project.

Chrome OS, unlike others, will not be available as a download to run and install, although Chromium OS can be compiled from source by anyone. Chrome OS will only ship on specific hardware from Google’s manufacturing partners. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, resembling that of the Chrome web browser. Because Google Chrome OS is aimed at users who spend most of their computer time on the Internet, the only application on the device will be a browser media player.

The saga of iPhone vs Android continues with a new boost. Apparently, Android seems to overthrow Apple in the mobile OS and smartphone aspects. But the course of events is still unpredictable.

Looks like the rivalry between the iPhone and Android will still travel a long way from here. Looking through mobile OS statistics of the two mobile companies over the past few months, it seems Android is on the lead.

A recent list of the top 30 mobile devices showed how Android once again smashed Apple’s iOS devices. Though there have been a neck-on-neck fight between the two.

The data gathered by mobile ad shop Millennial Media also showed that iOS and Android devices tied for the total number of impressions last november. Each OS gathered exactly 38% of the month’s mobile impressions.

On the first tally, when devices are broken into categories based on the OS alone, Apple took the glory. But iPads and iPod touch devices were out of the picture only smartphones were taken into consideration, Android came out on top.

Android hardware went up above the vitality of operating system. In fact, 13 out of 30 top mobile devices as measured by Millenia were run by Android. Samsung and Motorola were the top manufacturers behind Apple. The original Droid stood-out hit among all the Android smartphones on the list.

However, the competitiveness of Apple didn’t end there. Apple’s iOS devices showed huge advantages in numbers. Both companies would have won in the mobile OS department. The only question left unanswered is who among the two mobile companies will be able to sustain their spots as top players in the tech industry.

See after the skip how this competition is presented in graphical form.
