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.
