    Yes its true.Day by day the growth of Google Chrome over the internet is increasing and the day when Google becomes No 1 in Web and Technical field is not so far.
  2. you guys sound like a hen house.

    Cloud computing is the way forward weather you like it or not.

    Hardware heavy pc n laptops will be history,The PC of the future
    will be a solid sate workstation with minimal hardware
    and google is in place to accomodate this transition.

    I'm starting have doubts about your ability to grasp what others have been saying all along, 'we've been here before, with the idea of thin clients' and the only addition is this cloudy stuff (read storage, and not very secure at best) from google; and rest of the offering is plainly rubbish.

    I don't even use the Chrome browser... I'm all for alternative OS (excluding OSX) but Windows is just far too adopted. I mean MS started deploying it to businesses over nearly 30 years ago, and Google thinks they're just gonna take over in a few. Hilarious. I bet if there is an adoption it will be less than 1%.
  5. This guy is dreaming I would not trust Google with the name of my cat let alone business data

    I won't trust my data to a "cloud" nor use an OS I can't install programs on (I think Google sees what Apple is doing and wants a big slice).

    Now here's a man who has so obviously read Steve Jobs self help manual, "How to fall in love with the sound of your own voice, each and every time you open your mouth"! .. :rolleyes:

    Cloud computing is the way forward, but perhaps only for the perennially dull, or those who don't know the difference between, "weather" and "whether".

    For example, "you don't need a whetherman to know which way the wind blows", is dead wrong.

    I wish that those with opinions of such obvious gravity, would learn how to speak English. How's that for an opinion?

    I think the whole cloud concept is a bad one at present. The cloud only makes it easier for hackers. It provides a one stop shop for user data and identity. These companies need to stop forcing the "cloud on the public"; it is unfortunate that many will opt-in due to their ignorance and gullibility.

    side note: An ad company giving us an os that requires cloud based storage of personal data and web usage. I am a sceptic.

    Big thumbs down for Chrome OS.
