So Long Google Chrome OS, Hello Gazelle
Take that Google!
Looks like we could have a Browser OS war on our hands. And isn't that what we all dreamed about when we were kids? My Firefox just took down your Safari! ...Or something like that.
About a month ago, Microsoft announced a 'Gazelle' browser project that eerily parallels the Google Chrome OS that was just announced. They don't see it as an outright Internet Explorer replacement, but rather something else.
All signs are pointing to a small, but capable, operating system that boots right into a steroid using browser. Where would Grandmom save her spreadsheets to? Most people (myself included) forgot about Googles 'GDrive'. It's a place where you can save your files to the 'cloud'. Does that make any sense? Imagine yourself using an external hard-drive....that's invisible. That's the cloud.
It's technology like that which make this whole idea more believable.
Pretty soon Grandmom will be able to load up her spreadsheets on her tablet that's rocking Gazelle OS....Or something.
