Today is an important day for Google Chrome: Google will launch Chrome Web Store (a marketplace for web apps) and the much awaited Chrome OS. Chrome OS is the first browser based operating system that could replace your desktop if you use it primarily for browsing. It is a fast booting lightweight OS suitable for netbooks and tablets.

Google announced the launch event a few days ago:
“On December 7, we will host an event in San Francisco where we plan to share some exciting news about Chrome. The event will be webcast live on YouTube at: www.youtube.com/googlechrome. Mark your calendars for 10:30 a.m. PST and tune in.”
