The Chrome browser on Windows 8 has had a Chrome OS-like view for a while, but it now looks like that OS-within-an-OS option is spreading to other platforms. François Beaufort notes that Chrome Canary now has an experimental "Chrome OS mode" for Windows 7 that drops you into Google's web-based desktop, complete with an app launcher; you'll even get Google Now notifications through the app. There's no telling when (or if) this full-screen mode will reach polished versions of Chrome, but you can try it in Canary today if you're willing to live on the bleeding edge.
