Google continues to promote its Chrome operating system.  It announced (December 7) that Acer and Samsung will release new laptops in mid-2011.

These laptops will come with free wireless connectivity.  They will boot up on seconds.  In addition these devices will support the concept of Web computing where consumers use online applications rather than applications loaded on their computers.  The Chrome laptops will run on the Internet rather than running an operating system on the hard drive.

If successful, this will threaten Microsoft’s Office applications.  Chrome browser is third behind Microsoft and Firefox.  But it does have 120 million users.
