Ok, so probably a fake, but after yesterday’s Google announcement of it’s new OS already we have a seen a few screenshots leak onto the web.

The story is told that a Google representative demonstrated a beta build of the OS to an anonymous Acer parts supplier yesterday, and Acer were on the released list as official Google partners today…

Google Chrome OS Screenshots

Apparent highlights of the demonstration are:

  • The “elegant” install on the Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop took about 10 minutes and 1 restart
  • It was “amazingly fast” in its stripped-down beta form
  • The blue orb on the auto-hiding “Chrome Bar” along the bottom of the UI is essentially the start menu
  • Navigating the file system can be done in “exploration” (like Windows explorer) or “browser” (search based) modes
  • The Chrome Bar can also host a search bar if configured
  • Future Chrome OS netbooks will feature an iconified Chrome key on the keyboard similar to the Windows flag key

Who knows what time will bring…
