Before you get drown into the waves of news items explaining what Google Chrome is and what it is not, let’s not forget one of its most Â important feature Â which might make it click among Internet security geeks, like us.
The Official Google Blog explains why Chrome OS is very a secured OS by saying that since all apps that you will use will be living within the Chrome browser, Google has made sure that security was given utmost priority.
So, unlike traditional OS, Chrome OS will contain each app within a security sandbox to make it harder for malware and viruses to get in. Â In addition, the Chrome OS is a self-fixing system, meaning it will automatically reboot and fixes itself once compromised.
For more details on how Google Chrome OS will treat security issue, Â watch the short video featuring Google’s Security Engineer Will Drewry.
