GigaOM Chrome Show: New hardware hints and a Skype on the web letdown

Google Chrome Headphones

This week’s Chrome podcast kicks off with news that Google is testing Chrome OS on Intel’s fourth-generation chips, which aren’t due out until June. That opens the possibility for more high-end Chromebooks that will have much better battery life. Chris shares his experiences with Chrome OS so far and we answer a few listener questions including one about rolling back to prior software versions.

We have three tips for Chrome OS users while this week’s showcase extension is for the Chrome browser on Windows and Mac computers. Plus: more about that Skype version for the web you might have heard about.
