Google released a Linux-based open source project called Chromium OS. The operating system designed to work exclusively with web applications was released in November of 2009. Chromium is a downloaded OS, however, Google Chrome OS can only be found on specific hardware.

The OS interface takes on a minimalist approach that resembles Google's popular webrowser.

Chrome OS can be found exclusively on Samsung and Acer products here.

Google stated the average computer user spends 90% of the time on the internet in a browser. Checking email, chatting, reading news, watching videos, playing games and buying things. Thus making your web browser the most important program on your computer.

Google has the idea of using cloud technology saving all documents and files to the web, in the commercial linked above Google explains there is more space on the web than on any hard drive in any personal computer.

Because there are no programs running on a Chromebook there is ZERO need for any AntiVirus programs.
