Google （谷歌）Chrome OS 操作系统和浏览器的英文文章。
I spent some time trying to make title of the blog post more clear, but I am not 100% satisfied yet. So, let me explain this to you now. May be you can call this a tiny URL service for your open tabs.
This is a question asked by hundreds of people every day. Some wants to try Chrome OS to find out how it works, but for some, its a better option than buying an expensive Chromebook.
Chrome OS comes pre-installed with Chromebooks and can not be downloaded. However, the open source version of it, known as Chromium OS is free and can be downloaded from various sources.
There have always been questions in the Chromebook forums and from readers of this blog; about how much Google believes in Chrome OS. The proverbial words; ‘Google Buzz’ are often flung like feaces from hand during such discussions. Indeed we have heard the arguement that Buzz was a failure because Google never put it’s full weight behind it. But are such arguements grounded and can we relate them to Chrome OS? I say no.
The newest version of the Chrome browser was issued by Google on Thursday, which includes a fix for the “critical” Adobe Flash Player vulnerability detailed earlier this week.
The updated Chrome browser release – version 10.0.648.205 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame – includes security fixes forthree vulnerabilities. Google paid out a total of $1500 to two individuals for identifying two of the three bugs. The remaining bug was identified by a member of the Chrome security team.
All three vulnerabilities were classified by Google as “critical”.
As per Google’s usual process, details on the vulnerabilities have not been made public until users have a chance to update their browsers.
The release contains a new version of Adobe Flash Player. Google’s update for the media plug-in came one day before Adobe issued its own fix for a recently disclosed zero-day vulnerability (CVE-2011-0611), which was made available today.
During their Q1 conference call, Google’s executives discussed their Chrome strategy, which provided plenty of answers, if you were wondering why Google is putting so much focus on a product that is given away for free.
Google hopes that Chrome tightly aligns with its search strategy and locks Chrome users into using its search engine.
Referring to the Chrome business strategy, chief financial officer Patrick Pichette said the Chrome browser itself uses the Omnibox to shorten the way to Google search while still providing Google with search advertising revenues. It gets more interesting with Chrome OS, however: Google considers everyone who uses Chrome as a "locked in" Google user. Since Chrome is essentially the operating system on a Chrome OS device, Google is using the browser to simply monopolize the search engine market.
