Google "Google's Chrome Operating System launch has been delayed, and the platform won't be available to launch on netbooks for at least the 'next few months'. Google CEO Eric Schmidt revealed as much to reporters in a Q&A session at the Web 2.0 Summit Nov. 15, adding that the platform continues to be targeted for devices with a keyboard. Though he didn't provide a reason for the delay, he certainly shredded the rumor that there would be netbooks based on Google's Chrome Operating System launching this month."

One thing doesn't suit everybody. I don't like Android, it is every kind of sloppy half-arsed design and the browser doesn't begin to compare to a desktop browser.

Firefox mobile do, the default one don't. The latest beta of FF became my default browser, it is as fast on my Nexus and have the features I expect from a browser, including extensions.

They can add the same browser to Android.

With Android you can also use an alternative browser.

But it doesn't really matter what you think since Chrome OS will bomb if they ever release it.

You know you have a serious problem when Linux geeks are not excited about a Linux based OS. In fact Linux geeks should be against Chrome OS since it could be used as evidence by OEMs that the public doesn't want Linux on netbooks.

Why would the public want a browser instead of a browser + Android games and apps? It doesn't make sense. This is just some geek fantasy that some Google employee came up with. It's completely unacceptable for typical use. I live in an urban area and I still end up in areas that don't have internet.
