google chrome

Google Chrome rumors are running wild.  Could it be that this will be the next OS to take on Windows, OSX, Ubuntu, etc.   Hopefully because everything that we have seen so far from the Google camp shows that Google Chrome will be a Google data magnet to everything you do from your x, y coordinates of mouse usage to how fast you type….

Google Chrome OS will be one step closer to world domination……..
