What Does Chrome OS Mean for Flash

Google Chrome OS Google uncovered a lot of details yesterday about its upcoming operating system Chrome OS. This operating system is based on the the Google Chrome browser and will not have any native applications at all, and even though Adobe is an official partner of Google Chrome OS, this means that Adobe AIR will NOT be supported.

However, in its demo, Google showed how Flash for delivering the gaming experience on Chrome OS – which can obviously be done on any other browser as well. That is not to say that Flash will be the ONLY solution for creating applications and games on Google Chrome as many rich web applications, including these made by Google, are written in AJAX (which may or may not include Flash elements).

You can learn more about Google Chrome OS from Google’s official blog.

    Interesting. I knew about chrome and was very curious about the new browser but I didn't know about an OS. That's amazing, Google is always out there doing new stuff. I was blown away when they came out with the street viewer for their google maps.
    Good to know Chi!
