Notes

For reasons that do not depend on Softonic, you will be redirected to download Google Chrome OS on the author's website.

Chromium OS is only available in source code form. For advice on how to compile the source, see this discussion on the developer's forum page.

Review last updated: 17/03/14

Pros
  • Completely different from other OS
  • No learning curve: it's all a web browser
  • Takes seconds to boot
  • Perfect OS for netbooks
Cons
  • Only available as source code at the moment
  • Very early stage of development

"Get Ubuntu, it is better!"

Unfortunately, Chromium requires an online connection to do anything. If your connection goes down and you still want to access your computer, play a game, or type a paper, then you are SCREWED! Ubuntu, on the other hand, will run weather you are online or not and you can save all your vital information right to your hard drive instead of leaving it somewhere on an online "cloud" where any hackers, google corporate people, police, FBI, or other members of big brother can see all your private stuff (NO, YOU CAN'T TRUST THE GOVERNMENT AND CORPORATIONS). Ubuntu also supports the google chrome browser. Get the most out of your computer and keep your information safe and secure with Ubuntu at www.ubuntu.com

Pros
  • Fast, light weight.
Cons
  • Everything is online. Lose your connection and you are screwed. No privacy.
