Chrome Mac, Linux, and Extensions coming this year! Chrome OS still 2010 though, but source is up now

Chrome OS looks like... Chrome! (Shocking.) Looks like those TechCrunch screenshot leaks turned out to be real.

Chrome OS has "panels" -- small persistent windows. Good UI alternative to dealing only with tabs.

ALL your data on Chrome OS lives in the cloud. Showing a book-reading usage scenario. Browser windows can pull out like Exposť in OS X.

Google: "We want Chrome OS to feel more like a television than a computer. Just push a button and it's on." Uses custom PC firmware.

Chrome OS won't be out until probably this time next year. (Unless you get and compile the open source starting today!)
