Chrome OS ready for fall?

The programming boys at Google have recently made noticeable progress. The look and feel are simpler, cleaner and probably less process intensive than the previous versions. What’s more…

The programming team working on Chrome OS is likely to be close to completion by Fall. They are most concerned with whether to support zip files. The way things are looking now, users will be allowed to browse without logging in. From the start people thought you’d have to log in to use the system and that caused a bit of a commotion.

Browsing in Chrome OS: the top bar containing the tabs goes away in favor of a side tab bar. At the bottom of the tab bar there is a mini system-status bar that indicates wireless signal, battery charge remaining and time. The first icon looks like a smiley, could be some sort of notification service, but we’re unsure so far.
