Problem with Chrome OS: if a site (let's say the Save button on the Twitter appearance settings) has a browser compatibility issue, then you're completely out of luck.

Ya - I've read that Chrome has captured anything from 13 - 20% marketshare in recent months. I've used it exclusively for about a year now, and it's amazing for Web developers since it force-updates to the latest version. (This is actually a sticking point for many internal systems since they might break on updates ... which is why IE still rules that world.)

But it's still very nice to be able to switch to another browser kit in case a site you're on just isn't rendering properly. It's also nice to have an accessible harddrive ... ;)

"O. Kevin Vincent, chief counsel of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration added: We think it’s a scary concept for the public ... They ought to be petrified of that concept."
15 year old kids driving SUV's on the highway = scary.

Drunks coming home from the bar on the interstate = scary.

Self driving cars with hundreds of thousands of miles of testing + [I'd imagine] millions of miles of simulation that react in fractions of a second ... I'm pretty cool with that.
