Will Google Chrome OS support other browsers than Chrome?

By | July 12, 2009

It’s almost a week old news that Google plans to release an own operating system based on the Chrome browser in the next year. After thinking about it for a while I came to the point were I have to ask the following question:

Will Google Chrome OS support other browsers than Chrome?

Basically a lot of people complained about Microsoft that they are bundling their own browser Internet Explorer with their operating system. But what about an operating system which basically IS a browser? Is it different, or will it be possible e.g. to install a Firefox to Chrome OS?

I dont’t know the answer yet, but I’m very curious if Google will become a second Microsoft in terms of OS.

    @kubararu: yes it is open source but an OS is not only for people who have knowledge of programming their own OS version. If Google, Linux etc. want to break Microsoft’s market power they have to provide an easy to use OS for the non-techis.
