Google Google has just unveiled its Chrome OS operating system during a press event at the company's headquarters, and it's pretty much exactly what we expected it to be: a streamlined Linux kernel booting straight into the Chrome web browser. The code is available starting today.

Cached documents? For use by... offline web-apps? Nope. Your data lives at someone else's datacenter. And what good would having the data do you without the applications... which also live at someone else's datacenter?

You need to do a little research, methinks. It's possible today to support offline web apps, and local storage of data. Funny enough, Google have done much of the work around that area... almost as if they thought it might be useful for a browser-based OS...
