Chromium's architecture is three-tiered, consisting of "three major components":

  • The Chromium-based browser and the window manager
  • System-level software and user-land services: the Linux kernel, drivers, connection manager, and so on
  • Firmware4


Chromium OS was first made available in compiled form by hobbyists More organized efforts have emerged over time, including a few manufacturers that have shipped devices with the operating system pre-installed

Builds and forksedit

By May 2010, compiled versions of the work-in-progress source code had been downloaded from the Internet more than a million times The most popular version, entitled "Chromium OS Flow", was created by Liam McLoughlin, a then 17-year-old college student in Manchester, England, posting under the name "Hexxeh" McLoughlin's build boots from a USB memory stick and included features that Google engineers had not yet implemented, such as support for the Java programming language5 While Google did not expect that hobbyists would use and evaluate Chromium OS ahead of its official release, Sundar Pichai, Google vice president of product management now the CEO said that "what people like Hexxeh are doing is amazing to see" Pichai said the early releases were an unintended consequence of open source development "If you decide to do open-source projects, you have to be open all the way"5

Hexxeh's work continued into the following year He announced "Chromium OS Lime" in December 2010,6 and in January 2011, released "Luigi", an application designed to "jailbreak"/"root" the Google Cr-48 "Mario" prototype hardware and install a generic BIOS7 The developer made the builds available in virtual machine format on March 13, 20118 With no official build of Chromium OS forthcoming from Google, Hexxeh's "vanilla" nightly builds of Chromium OS were the principal resource for people wanting to try Chromium OS Hexxeh stopped uploading his builds on April 20, 2013

More recent versions of Chromium OS are available from Arnoldthebat, who maintains daily and weekly builds9 along with usage guidelines and help10 In July 2012, Chromium Build Kit was released It automatically compiles a developer build and installs Chromium OS on a USB drive11

In 2015, New York City-based Neverware produced a Chromium OS fork called CloudReady aimed at the educational market, with the intention of extending the life of older PCs and laptops1213 A subsequent version can dual-boot Neverware and the Windows operating system14 In 2016, Nexedi released NayuOS, a fork of Chromium OS precompiled for several Chromebook computers The operating system provides Chrome OS-like capabilities without storing data on Google servers It optionally removes the Google login and provides additional developer tools1516


Some devices have shipped with Chromium OS preinstalled In May 2011, Dell Computer also released a new build for the Dell Inspiron Mini 10v netbook, following up on an earlier build released almost 18 months earlier The build did not support audio, but was bootable from a USB drive17 Other devices include the Kogan Agora Chromium Laptop by the Australian company Kogan18 and the Xi3 Modular Computer, introduced by the company of the same name1920 In late 2015, a team headed by Dylan Callahan released a beta Chromium OS port to the Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computer21

Trademark disputeedit

In June 2011, ISYS Technologies, based in Salt Lake City, sued Google in a Utah district court, claiming rights to the name "Chromium" and, by default, Chromebook and Chromebox The suit sought to stop Google and its hardware and marketing partners from selling Chromebooks22 The suit was later dismissed and, as part of an undisclosed settlement between Google and ISYS, ISYS abandoned its trademark efforts
