Chrome OS and Android merging???

Chrome OS and Android merging???

If it does merge, I hope it is the other way around and that Android folds into Chrome and not the other way round as the wall street journal post suggest.

Chrome OS already allows android apps to run via ARC (App Runtime for Chrome) and it works pretty well. My app (simple as it is) required 0 new code to get it running in Chrome. Even though it is not supported on Windows/Mac, it works perfectly well.

Chrome is missing apps. Get ARC working well with Play Services and you have a very power platform.

Also as Chrome was built around always getting updates, you will always have the latest version of chrome, with the latest Runtime version. No need to wait for stupid updates to come your way.

I think one thing that is needed in the Android SDK is better UI elements for HTML and CSS. I think the development in polymer could help and if that is then integrated into the API it will really help.

I don't see the logic going from Chrome to Android. It doesn't make sense...
