Google Chrome OS pics leaked(One of the biggest internet hoax of this year)

Google chrome OS screenshots have been leaked.Google Chrome OS is based on the Linux kernel and is an open source project that is currently supported by Acer, Asus, Adobe, Freescale, HP, Lenovo, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments.

An anonymous person created a Chrome OS Leak blog and posted screenshots of the private developer beta of the OS. As per the blog post, Google representatives visited the Acer team to show distinct features of the Chrome OS. The Google Chrome OS installation on Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop took about 10 minutes. Here are a few highlights that were shown in the Chrome OS Demo.

The 'Chrome Bar' or the task bar, which auto-hides, appears at the bottom of the UI just like Apple Mac OS X's dock. Navigation is powered with 'Exploration' that is like a file explorer, and 'Browser', which basically is a web browser with search options. If configured, even the Chrome Bar can feature search bar. Apparently, Google Talk was the only application
installed and it had a different logo.

Also, whenever Chrome OS based netbooks come out, the netbooks will carry the Chrome logo in place of the current Windows logo.

The person who posted about the Chrome OS noted that the operating system was extremely stripped down and pretty fast. Sounds exciting, eh? Many such early leaks can be expected till Google releases the Chrome OS code publicly.

Not to forget that Google has used web applications as platform for this Chrome browser based operating system. Compatibility of all the existing productivity suites and general applications are far from reality at this moment. Also, lot of application development work is yet to begin for enabling the web based applications. And since Adobe is one of the partners, expect to see more Adobe AIR based web applications to work in conjunction with several other apps.
