Google's Leading Edge: Wave and Chrome Operating System

Google Wave, Android, App Engine, Chrome, Google Web Toolkit and AJAX APIs were first introduced in Google I/O Developer Conference 2009 on the 28th of May.

Google Wave is an online tool for real-time communication and collaboration. A wave can be both a conversation and a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps and more. A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when. A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversation, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.

Google once again has expanded its innovation intensively when it launched Chrome OS. Yes, you read it right! Google has now its own operating system.

Google Chrome OS is an open source and lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. It is being created for people who spend most of their time on the web, and is being designed to power computers ranging from small netbooks to full-size desktop system.

Google Chrome OS is the extension of Chrome Browser and is basically an open source operating system concentrating on netbooks.

There have been lots of operating system but what's new about Google Chrome OS? It runs via the use of web and boots in just about 7 seconds. As we all know, collective applications and all software of the OS that we're using today are becoming less useful because of the rapid used and of the powerful existence of the web. Below is the demo video of Google Chrome OS.

The concept and framework of Google Chrome OS works with accessibility, usability and ease of use of different applications on the web. For example, you don't need to save files and documents on your desktop's HDD but stored it directly on the web or say playing music and videos not in your media player but on the web itself (e.g. Youtube).

The Google Chrome OS will soon be available in the market halfway in 2010.

  1. I've been hearing so much about this Google Wave. Do you already have one? Is it any good?

  2. @reyjr: Still I'm waiting for my account to be activated for the Google Wave preview..

    Google Wave is a good communication tool and the future vision of how we communicate live and in real time (that's what I think and consider), and much a do Google Wave is a live collaboration tool to which linking persons (or a group of individuals) discuss certain idea and or a topic and come up with a bowl of good documentation of that topic, vice versa..

    Though it's only a developer's preview, we'll then see (in time) the full potential of this Wave conversation tool..

    And by the way, thank you Sir for being here..

    Happy Thanksgiving..
