Google is now testing the Chrome OS and fixing the bugs and made it compatible with Intel’s dual-core processors.
Google tried to create a cloud-based operating system in the form of Chrome OS. Not like the conventional desktop operating systems such as Windows and Mac OS X, Chrome OS just runs web-based applications through a customized version of the Chrome browser. So that’s why Chrome OS got high speed and less power consumption.
The Chrome OS is basically designed for netbooks only nut keeping the popularity of tablets in mind the developers are making the OS compatible for such devices too.
