With the recent statements from Google on the future release of the Chrome OS on tablets in the future, there has been many a healthy debate on the future of the two projects. The Chrome OS vs. Android discussion has been going on for quite some time but with tablets it will be the first time they actually share markets. …
An interesting tweak to the Chromium source code shows that Google’s Chrome Browser may just be getting a new logo. The above picture shows the new Chromium logo but it is most likely that the Chrome Browser and possibly Chrome OS will be getting a more colourful version of this logo.
Since the release of the CR-48 for Google’s Chrome OS Beta it seems as if Chromium OS has simply been forgotten. All the news and hype has focused on Google’s new Chrome Notebook and how thousands of early adopters are getting to grips with it.
We’ve all been waiting patiently for the next iteration of Hexxeh’s popular Chromium OS Builds. Hexxeh announced the planned release of Chromium OS Lime after the December 7 Chrome Event which saw the launch of the Chrome OS Beta program. Here’s an excerpt of a blog post be made on December 15th:
The last few weeks have seen the fan-fair of the final unveiling of the long awaited Chrome OS beta program. Over 14,000 CR-48 Chrome Notebooks have been shipped thus far and an estimated 46,000 are still to come. Even-so, amid all this excitement independent developers are working hard to keep the Chromium OS project going. One such developer who we’ve come to know as ‘Hexxeh’ isn’t sitting on his laurels; he’s hard at work on what will be Chromium OS Lime, the successor to Chromium OS Flow.
Some of you may remember that a month or so ago we had the chance to interview ‘Hexxeh’ (Liam McLoughlin) who is by far the most recognizable Chromium OS developer thus far. He has compiled such great Chromium OS distributions as Chromium OS Cherry, Flow, and Vanilla. I took the opportunity to ask him a few questions about his thoughts regarding the recent release of the Chrome OS Beta and the unveiling of Google’s CR-48 Chrome Notebook.
Around this time last year Google released the Chromium OS source code. Ever since then there have been many ups and downs, rumours and counter rumours surrounding the official launch of Google’s new operating system; Chrome OS.
Today I had the chance to interview ‘Hexxeh’; the creator of the most popular Chromium OS distributions since Google released it’s source code. Most of us are already familiar with his work; his latest being Chromium OS Flow which is now being used by over 85,000 people each day.
In a twist of fate Chrome OS has hit the limelight once more. It’s been a month or so since we’ve heard any major news about Google’s pet project and I have to admit; this was becoming a concern for many. It has almost been a year since Google announced their plans to release Chrome OS but the Internet giant …
Yesterday I wrote a scathing rebuke of attempts to sensationalize Hexxeh’s supposed leak of an Apple Ipad running Chrome OS (more accurately; Chromium OS). Today Hexxeh released a very short and cryptic video (of-course) showing this ‘miracle’ and indeed the mainstream media picked it up once again.
Today Hexxeh tweeted a picture which seemed to display Apple’s Ipad running Chromium OS. More opportunistic bloggers (Kat Hannaford from Gizmodo) quickly turned the tweet into an over sensationalized story about how Hexxeh had possibly ported Chromium OS onto Apple’s star product.
In a recent news leak reported today by Techcrunch; it has been revealed that the American mobile phone career, Verizon may be working with Google on a Chrome OS powered device.
