The newest update to Google's Chrome OS is bringing the browser-based operating system a lot closer to a traditional windowing environment. Development channel (the least stable build) version 19.0.1048.17 adds Google's hardware-accelerated Aura UI and window manager, bringing a desktop, overlapping windows (pictured above), a Windows-style taskbar, and a Launchpad-esque app launcher (pictured below) to the platform.
Can't say I am surprised, Google is acting like Chinese manufacturers right now.
