  12. Google chrome OS will never be able to beat Microsoft OS. Google has hyped it so much that now people has so much expectations from it.

  13. As far i heard about Google's OS is that they don't need programs installed into local computer. Instead of installing the program will run from server. The idea is nice but did u think what happens where the net speed is slow? I think Google already thought about that :).

  17. Definitely one of the best browsers of today's time, and in my personal experience and opinion Google Chrome can withstand Firefox because of it's user friendly and "non-laggy" environment and even if you have a Pentium III computer you can run Chrome on it, unlike firefox that if you have low specs of PC it will definitely laggg to hell! Anyway thanks for your post i totally appreciate it, and btw im a Google Chrome Advocate.Thanks!
