Google to Build Malware Resistant OS

According to Google's official Blog, Google plans to extend their Google Chrome browser (considered by most security professionals to be the most insecure browser out there) into a lightweight operating system designed to primarily interact with web-enabled technologies.

According to Google "Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web. And as we did for the Google Chrome browser, we are going back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates. It should just work."

I -for one- find this to be pretty *interesting*, given Google's track record when it comes to security, but "It should just work", right?.
