 Google has revealed at least some of the hardware manufacturers it's working with to design and build devices that run the much-discussed Google Chrome Operating System.

With a post to the official Chrome blog Wednesday afternoon, the first official  hardware partners include Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments -- according to the latest Chrome OS update from Google, we are looking at the company's initial play mate prepared to put their heads above the parapet. The co-conspirators for Google’s  its entry into the operating system business. With Adobe's involvement, we can assume Flash support is a given, and the others unsurprisingly have joined the new populace of surfing tools with major  netbook and smartbook players.

There is the noted absence of AMD and Intel. We will have to watch this space to find out if Google has the might to dent the strangle hold of Microsoft.

Chromium is the open-source project behind Google Chrome  Since the initial launch of Google Chrome back in September  Google  have had the Elements and Resources tabs of WebKit's Inspector available.

They are now ready to present Inspector's Scripts and Profiles panels built on top of the V8 engine providing web developers with full-featured Javascript debugger and sample-based profiler in the dev channel release of Google Chrome.


We are also re-introducing the Elements and Resources tabs running out of process for better robustness, security and support for the new debugger and profiler setup.

All of the code in the project is open source, including V8, a new JavaScript virtual machine. You can get Chromium's source code and contribute to the project.
