Google Launches Fuchsia OS Website

Google | Fuchsia

Google has mostly remained tight-lipped about its new Open Source operating system under development – Fuchsia. After sharing a few details at the last I/O event, it has now quietly launched a developer portal for Fuchsia. This new website also gives away a few important details about the new operating system.
Touted as the Android replacement, all that Google has revealed is that the new OS is based on Zircon microkernel which also provides core drivers and Fuchsia’s libc implementation. Previously, Android chief Hiroshi Lockheimer had disclosed that Fuchsia is aimed at bringing uniformity between all kinds of devices. As per Hiroshi, “Fuchsia is about just pushing the state of the art in terms of operating systems and things that we learn from Fuchsia we can incorporate into other products”.
The purpose of the new website is to teach developers everything there is to know about it. The site makes things much simpler by acting as a hub of information regarding Fuchsia. The website can also be installed on mobile devices as Progressive Web Application. The website is expected to give an initial impetus to the OS. The platform is expected to enable developers to start preparing for Fuchsia and make their existing Android apps compatible with the upcoming OS. This will eventually help Google successfully migrate Android’s Play Store to Fuchsia’s app store in the case Fuchsia becomes a mainstay.
