Google today made announcements regarding Chrome, Chrome Web Store and Chrome OS.

Chrome
Google Instant is coming to the Omnibox. V8, Chrome’s JavaScript engine has been overhauled to run complex JavaScript programs up to twice as fast as before.

Chrome Web Store
Today the Chrome Web Store is open for business in the United States. Developers can start uploading their apps now.

Chrome OS
Google is launching a pilot program where they will give test notebooks to qualified users, developers, schools and businesses.

The test notebooks exist only to test the software—they are black, have no branding, no logos, no stickers, nothing. They do have 12.1 inch screens, full-sized keyboards and touch pads, integrated 3G from Verizon, eight hours of battery life and eight days of standby time. Chrome notebooks are designed to reach the web instantly, are easy to share among friends and family, and simply by logging in, all of your apps, bookmarks and other browser settings are there. Setting up a new machine takes less than a minute.

In the first half of next year Chrome notebooks will be available for sale from Acer and Samsung. More manufacturers will follow.

To participate in the pilot program, visit the Chrome notebook website.
