With Google all set to win with Chrome, it will be interesting to wait and watch. Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) — According to John Gapper the columnist from The Financial Times, chrome the new, eagerly awaited web browser from Google cannot replace Windows. Though chrome has the capability of reducing user’s dependence on these operating systems, it cannot replace Windows, Linux or Apple’s OS X completely.
Designed to be a Windows killer, chrome is all set to be a powerful browser which can replace most of the functions of an operating system. 1990s saw Microsoft setting forth on its browser war and sending Netscape packing. Chrome, according to Dapper is all set to be a software application which is powerful enough to make OS players jittery.
Irrespective of the threat from chrome, Windows has seen a rapid fall in its popularity. Selling more due to being pre-installed by manufacturers of computers, Microsoft has been trying to get this operating system to its feet for quite some time now with Bill Gates sounding the alarm bell years’ ago through his memo to the company executives.
It does not make much of a difference to the users of course as to the operative system they use. Be it Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Apple’s Safari, all the user needs is to browse as well as send and receive e mails. The same is true with other software applications like powerpoint, spreadsheets or even Apple’s iTunes.
The battle of 90s among two top executives in Microsoft saw James Allchin win against Brad Silverberg and Windows monopoly continued to be protected as the company. With Google all set to win with Chrome, it will be interesting to wait and watch.
