Chrome OS is intended to be a very lightweight, quick-starting operating system whose central focus is supporting Google's Chrome browser. Applications will run mostly inside the browser, making the web — not the desktop — into the computer's default operating system.
It seems to be an extension of Google Chrome itself — an OS designed entirely to support the web browser. Didn't Microsoft have some kind of problem when they deeply integrated Internet Explorer into Windows? How is this any different?
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary saftey deserve neither liberty not saftey." -- Benjamin Franklin, 1759
