Snaps of Google Chrome OS

TechCrunch recently published a blog post that has a few snaps of what the Chrome OS may look like. The post has a bunch of pictures, one of them showing a cover flow like window switching. It looks quite good.

The post says that the open-source community, Chromium, working behind Chrome OS, has been uploading photos since quite a long time.

Chrome OS has some interesting desktop management system called Panels. Also, if you see the second photo on the TechCrunch post, you see a part of the Chrome browser. See the small tabs on the left? The first one is GMail, which also shows how many new messages you have. The second one is a shortcut to Google Calendar. I have a snap here:
