    The First Pics of The Google Chrome OS Beta for Devs!!! (Leaked)





    It's not much, in fact, these screenshots are incredibly easy to fake. Still, a hastily constructed WordPress blog has been setup to host what are claimed to be the world's first screenshots of Google's new Chrome OS -- hailed as both a Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X killer or a Google FUD generator depending upon who you're listening to. As the story is told, a Google representative demonstrated a private beta build of the OS to an anonymous Acer parts supplier yesterday, presumably somewhere in Taiwan. The picture above was grabbed breathlessly while the Google rep was distracted. Highlights of the demonstration break down as follows:

    • The "elegant" install on the Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop took about 10 minutes and 1 restart
    • Reboots desktop-to-desktop in about 25 seconds
    • It was "amazingly fast" in its stripped-down beta form
    • The blue orb on the auto-hiding "Chrome Bar" along the bottom of the UI is essentially the start menu
    • Navigating the file system can be done in "exploration" (like Windows explorer) or "browser" (search based) modes
    • The Chrome Bar can also host a search bar if configured
    • Future Chrome OS netbooks will feature an iconified Chrome key on the keyboard similar to the Windows flag key

    Of course, it's a long, long time before this OS appears on next generation ARM and x86 smartnetbooks -- second half of 2010 according to the Goog -- so who knows what the interface will look like by then. One more image after the break.

    Default [Fake] First Screenshots of Google Chrome OS

    [Fake] First Screenshots of Google Chrome OS



    [UPDATE] The person claiming the leak has confirmed that the info and screenshots are fake.
    Recently we posted about "Google Chrome OS", a new OS from Google which is set to launch in 2010. It would be open source OS and would focus on simplicity, security and speed. It'll run on both x86 and ARM chips. It'll run within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel.
    Now it seems that someone has leaked a few screenshots of this new OS which is under testing atm.
    The owner of "Chromeosleak" blog claims that he works for a company which supplies parts for Acer laptops and a Google rep visited his company and showed a demo of Google Chrome OS.
    Here is what he says:
    The OS installation was performed on a Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop to show it can install quickly on laptops from late 2007 to early 2008. The install from Vista to Google Chrome OS Dev Beta was only 10 minutes and was very elegant. Only one restart required.
    A wizard asks you for basic info on the first boot up. Google was still in progress of developing the wizard so we just skipped most of this. Google at the moment installed only the Google Talk application. They did this because the Rep said “At the current time, Google has not completed compatibility tests with some laptops and netbooks.”.
    This beta was extremely stripped down. However, it was amazingly fast. They did one reboot and it rebooted from Desktop to Desktop in about 25ish seconds.
    There is a button on the Chrome Bar (At least that is what the Rep called it.) that is basically the blue center of the chrome logo. This button pulls up a Start Menu clone essentially. The Reboot, Programs, and Main Directory is located here.
    The navigation uses two options. “Exploration” or “Browser”. Explanation is much alike the Windows Explorer. The Browser uses search options. In Browser Mode, the Google Chrome Browser comes up and you can search and also use the “Most Visited” features for your files. This part was rough feeling and Google Stressed this Dev Beta is extremely early and has much to work out.
    There is a clock on the Chrome Bar. It is very stationary and looks very plain. However, it does work.
    The icons are large but can be shrunk and grown to your preference much alike the dock in a Mac. May we also note a new icon for Google Talk. Strange but that is how it is.
    Also, a internet wizard is very quick and shows a signal bar beside the clock.
    The Chrome Bar also auto hides. It can be brought back up by the Windows key and Space (The Rep Mentioned in Google Chrome OS laptops this key will actually be a fully colored and 3D Chrome Logo in some Netbooks)
    The rep also mentioned some of the Linux aspects including the option to have a status bar on the Chrome Bar for Devs.
    In addition a search bar can be implemented on the Chrome Bar. Programs appear in a Windows 7 Esque icon fashion.
    And here are the screenshots of Google Chrome OS Desktop containing Google Talk icon and Chrome Bar:









    That's all. We can't say whether this info and screenshots are legit or not but its definitely interesting read. Comments are welcome...
