If you actually watch the video, you'll find that the browser (at least in the video) does look like a modified version of Google Chrome. If it supports the "apps" that Chrome does, we now know just what Android 3.0 has in store for us.

That way you have an OS that runs both Android and Chrome OS apps.

If you look at some of the existing Android browsers like Dolphin, they do tabbed browsing. And Chrome OS "apps" are nothing more than web sites. Nothing a bookmark in any browser can't handle. Pinning might be useful, and I'm sure it will show up in various browsers in short order.

Like I said, there is really nothing in ChromeOS worth porting to Android.

Actually, maybe the vast majority of Chrome OS apps (which also work in standard Chromium) are nothing but Web sites, but there are some that are installed as Chrome extensions:

Now I don't know about you, but it's these kinds of apps that in my opinion *need* to be ported.

Um, Android already has several very nice calculators (RealCalc is my favorite) and I can't imagine needing to write a document on a phone. If you're doing it on a tablet, GoogleDocs already works on Android. And if all you need is a text editor, Android has those too.
