As you may or may not have noticed, for the past few days I have had a poll up asking about the amount of time on your computer spent in your actual web browser.
I recently found out about Chromium OS. Quite simply, it is an operating system, without the operating system. This may seem silly, but it allows for quick, easy, simple access to the internet. These videos are quite entertaining and can explain much better than I.
