Last I checked, this was the Chrome feed, not the Chrome OS feed. I care about one and not the other. I suggest the ChromeOS team get/use their own feed...

Yes, please move to another blog. I am a Chrome BROWSER user and couldn't care less about the poor Chrome OS.

I'm a Google Chrome browser user and don't mind that you post related updates here, like Google Chrome Frame in the past, and Google Chrome OS here. They're all subsets of the same code base after all.

While it would be nice, especially for us Chrome OS users, if there were a separate blog I don't see the snark as necessary to get the point across.

Having said that I really would like a changelog for what's going on in the dev branch. Y'know, since I feel that would also be interesting and such.

"Announcements and release notes for the Google Chrome browser."
We, Chrome "browser" users are starting to suffer because of the changes you make to the browser for the convenience of Chrome "OS" users.

(e.g: The new settings tab page)

The browser made for win/mac/linux is different from the OS.
Do the developers them selves not realize this?
Make a Chrome OS version specifically for the needs of the OS.

Chrome OS is basically just an advanced browser (Google Chrome) though...

Also the font on this news update was so big and out-of-place as compared to other posts. o.O

Yeah guys, the browser is almost identical to the OS, they're not that different.
I do agree though that the OS merits its own blog because of the fact that currently, OS information is only applicable to a certain group of people. I suspect though that Chrome OS will slowly catch up with and eventually become equivalent with the browser, which is maybe why they haven't made a separate blog. (Claim made based on no knowledge of the actual technical intricacies involved to make my proposition possible)

Chrome and Chrome OS are all part of the same project. Don't you think Google put Chrome browser out there to get you ready for (addicted to) the interface of their OS? Google doesn't give you cool free stuff just because they love you--they do it as an innovative business practise (think GOOG-411). Be glad you have a cool browser and stop your kvetching

Apple wished the safari browser was as good as Google Chrome. Thank God Google had mercy on them. If Apple had people as talented as Google they would be way ahead of the game!

Thank you Google

I received my notebook 5 days ago, and it updated to instead of the latest. How would I go about updating it to this version?
