The new browser will focus on making the computer an interface between the web and the user, making speed a priority, and making the browser the main application in the OS. The official press release states, "Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010.""
