ChromeOS,[8] sometimes styled as chromeOS and formerly styled as Chrome OS, is a Linux-based operating system developed and designed by Google. It is derived from the open-source ChromiumOS and uses the Google Chrome web browser as its principal user interface.

Google announced the project in July 2009, initially describing it as an operating system where applications and user data would reside in the cloud. ChromeOS was used primarily to run web applications.[9]

All ChromiumOS and ChromeOS versions support progressive web applications (such as Google Docs or Microsoft Office 365). ChromeOS (but not ChromiumOS) from 2016 onwards can run Android applications from Google Play.[10] Since 2018, ChromiumOS/ChromeOS version 69 onwards also support Linux applications, which are executed in a lightweight virtual machine[11] with a Debian environment.[12][13]
