Getting better all the time, Chrome OS still has long way to go

CNET
1 March 2011
  • Summary: Chrome OS struggles with the delineation between apps and Web sites, even though they are fast growing together. Great for students and casual home use, the day is coming when it'll be competitive, but it's not yet a replacement for a more mature OS.
  • Cons: Chrome OS continues to be hamstrung by familiar limitations: popular cross-platform programs like Skype don't work, Chrome is terrible with large numbers of tabs, and non-Google sites can't be easily integrated as apps.

  • Summary: Chrome OS struggles with the delineation between apps and Web sites, even though they are fast growing together. Great for students and casual home use, the day is coming when it'll be competitive, but it's not yet a replacement for a more mature OS.
  • Pros: Chrome OS continues to mature, as regular updates bring rapid improvement to the browser-based operating system. New changes we like include Google Play integration and 100GB of Google Drive storage for free.
  • Cons: Chrome OS continues to be hamstrung by familiar limitations: popular cross-platform programs like Skype don't work, Chrome is terrible with large numbers of tabs, and non-Google sites can't be easily integrated as apps.

Google Chrome OS review

Stuff.tv
11 May 2011
  • Summary: Whether you just take the odd look at Google Maps or run your whole life with its online organisers, chances are you’re familiar with Google’s apps. Chrome OS takes this ubiquity to its logical conclusion, reducing an entire operating system to a browser and a bunch of Google accounts. That simplicity means it can run on very basic hardware, with all the storage and number-crunching handled by Google’s servers.
