New Chrome OS interface in the works


We don't know if this is going to be a permanent change, or just an option, but we've got a little view of a new user interface for Chrome OS. It is called Athena and there is little more to it at this point.

Thanks to Fran├žois Beaufort over on G+ or sharing the news and the screenshot.

This is certainly an early look at the new interface, but we are excited that it may offer some customization and is designed more to be touch friendly.


Let's keep this short today, but stay tuned, I'll be sure to show and explain more as Athena grows and gets closer to launch. I also have a lot to learn and discover with my own new Chromebook. Otherwise, head on over to the code commit for all the nitty-gritty.

So, Chrome OS is just a web browser, right, so why does it need a new interface? (Possible trick question.)
