This release includes a couple of unique Chrome OS features, such as an Applications screen, but, for the most part, the user experience is identical to using the Chrome Web browser.

The other Options menu items are the same as those in the Chrome Web browser. Here, you can change the search engine to Bing or Yahoo, but you can’t change the browser. (Right now, it looks like Chrome will be the only browser available for Chrome OS.)
