What do you like best?

The os is lite and efficient. It can easily run on even a decade or older hardware smoothly. It's easily available and simple to install. The website is user-friendly.

It is mostly for work so it has no other features, and it feels very neat and clutter free. It has a very business like experience on any desktop you use on it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's very difficult to play any kind of media or install any app other than chrome extensions, which make the os very limited.

The os also feels a little clunky at times, unpolished even.

The data is never saved on it and it refreshes everything on every start up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since the os can run on any hardware, the work pcs that have been provided are cost effective yet stable enough for work.

Another benefit is that it's very easy to keep restrictions on the os for only work related websites and other functions Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

At my work, Google Chrome browser is not usable on our computer systems. Therefore, we had Chromium installed as a replacement. I like that I have most of the functionality of the Chrome browser, although with some limitations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't look as sleep as Chrome, and lacks the Google connectivity that you get with Chrome as well. We can't play flash, but that may be a limitation of our system setup and not the browser itself. It does crash occasionally, requiring me to kill certain tabs. Although I prefer the look and functionality of Chromium/Chrome over Firefox, there are some pages/plugins that work with more stability on Firefox and don't always have support on Chromium, so I still am required to use at least 2 different browsers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a good alternative, just be prepared to deal with the lack of Google connectivity, and also Chromium does not support all of the apps and plugins/addons that you get with Google Chrome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have Chromium as an a stand in for Chrome, which is not supported on our operating system anymore. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It would be nice if I could have all these above features, plus a hard drive so I could download and run a handful of programs Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

If you are someone who lives on the internet, has Google as their m=best mate, Chromium OS is the right choice for you. Why buy a 1000$ "Premium" laptop for surfing internet only? Chromium OS is super lightweight and thus laptops shipping with ChromeOS (chromebooks) are cheap as hell. It is easy to use, install and keeps you connected to your favorite apps. The chrome store has many apps to suit your needs. It is much more secure than traditional chrome browser. And best of all is, its Open Source. Google services are very well integrated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Chrome OS is heavily dependent on chrome store apps which IMO are not just enough. There are a lot of spam apps and extensions that destroy the experience. Although some apps like evernote, Pixlr etc are very well implemented. developer tools are provided by Google but lack documentation. It requires a 24x7 internet connection to function. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are someone who lives off the internet and all you gotta do is surf, then chrome OS is definitely for you. Google apps are well integrated. Cloud Storage is your best friend. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The experience of surfing is much better here due to awesome integration of google apps and services. Some apps like evernote are great to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Chromium makes files accessable on any computer. But it is secure. I love to use it to work anywhere for work or to access files from any computer. It's been long overdue. No longer do you have to wait to return to your desktop computer to finish work. I enjoy this software immensely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything on this software, to my knowledge. Still testing it out, but it has worked well in the past years...and I presume this will do just as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would download this for easier access to files from other devices, and it is secure. So you will never lose your data anymore. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes files accessable from anywhere. I love the Cloud! It's made my experience with working and accessing my files for different needs be it business or art much easier to access from other computers or from my laptop or phone. It allows me to connect files easily...and secured. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The whole OS is centered on Chrome, or chromium the open source version of chrome in this case.

Since there's so much emphasis on the always connected aspect of it, this makes it easier to work with Google Docs and other google services easily.

Web browsing is fast and fluid, and I installed it on my SSD, and well, it could handle 100 open tabs at a time without slowing down. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This OS heavily relies on the Internet for almost everything, so your laptop will just be an expensive paperweight when you are out of range of WiFi or a cellular network.

This OS is also underpowered, since all applications that you see are "Chrome Apps" which are built on layers and layers of HTML and JS. If you want this to run demanding applications, such as 3D games and such, you might be mistaken. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if you want to deploy web based applications on a large number of computers, without going through painful full operating systems installs, you should try Chromium OS, it just takes around 10 minutes per PC to set up.

And it 's open source, most bugs are addressed quite quickly Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was testing chromium OS to implement certain web based apps, which provide an online discussion platform for children. I chose chromium owing to the minimal set up involved, and I was able to successfully deploy a prototype on 20 computers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It has much similarities with Chrome, but it is an open source web OS, which has simple look, more secure.

Its installation takes very less time for all the OS's I have used and booting is super fast. Also it makes cloud storage so simple, and has lots of extensions. It provides access to all your google accounts, and syncs your data to cloud which is more safer to store. Support is better like other open source OS's. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Non availability of apps, cannot use it offline always need to be online, high memory usage, has lot of problem with network drivers hence disconnects frequently especially with Wifi. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Simple and best user interface, gives best browsing experience. It's easy to install and boots very fast. Using it is not difficult for the ones who are familiar with Chrome browser. Has good support and lots of extensions.

No need of internet security since it is more secure compared to browsers, this OS syncs all the apps linked to your google account so it is like an android mobile inside your computer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At first I was too impressed with cloud storage, but due to its connectivity issues I am feeling irritated. Since it is a new OS it doesn't have lots of apps, support team should come up with a way to make Android apps fit into it. Also, there are lots of fields which need improvement. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try and for sure you will love it, the best web based OS one can ever come across. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Internet is the one source from which you get viruses and other malware to your system, by browsing in chromium OS which has high security features, I stopped buying internet security. So it is more economical. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Best web optimized OS where wll features of a normal web browser are accessable with great extent. Boot speed is around 3 sec which is fastest according to my experience compared to other OS's. Cloud connection is permenent all time which does not make the data in the system to loose. Syncing data and accessing to google accounts is the plus point which many google users prefer. Installation is damn fast compared to other OS's. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Tends to be focused manily on web interface for which gamers are not focused into the operatin system as we cannot find much of them here. Windows applications will not work here which is one of the major disadvantage. Not much apps and extensions available here which is limiting the user to a particular constraint. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

You can't install proprietary desktop software such as Microsoft Word or Adobe Photoshop on Chrome OS because they are not web applications. You have pay for most of the games.

The startup time of Chromium OS is very fast. It has all the features supported by chrome and is an open source project. It also integrates easily with all the google accounts. We can install many extensions in Chromium OS which are not permitted in Chrome. For instance: Flash video downloader exists for chromium however not for chrome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Chromium consumes more memory when compared to firefox which is also open source web OS. Firefox supports javascript better. The control for the administrator is much better in firefox. Chromium OS is not so supportive for offline usage. It has a slow performance when more tabs are opened. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a user, I prefer chromium more than chrome. Google chrome is just a stable release of Chromium OS with added support from google like crash reporting. If you don't wish to depend on Google, you can customize your own Chromium browser.

But if you wish to contribute for open source project, then go for firefox. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I, as a developer, have tried and used Chromium OS for open source development. But I find contributing for firefox is much more worth than Chromium. Even firefox supports most of the features that are supported by Chromium. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
