Google Offers Peek at New Fuchsia Operating System

Google is the company behind Android, the most widely-used mobile operating system in the world. Now, according to Ars Technica, Google's secret project has a new user interface (UI) which is a card-based design for managing multiple applications.

According to HotFix, the UI of Fuchsia is now known as Armadillo (artist's rendering above). Fuchsia developer Travis Geiselbrecht has said that the OS isn't a "toy thing" or a "dumping ground of a dead thing that we don't care about anymore".

It is an open secret that Google has been working on a new operating system. So, an app written with the help of the Flutter SDK can be made to run on Android, ChromeOS, iOS and Fuchsia too. Specifically, where Fuchsia OS lies in the mix of things in relation to Android and Chrome OS. You can check his video above showing off the UI for the operating system, or hit up Ars Technica for a full preview of what Fuchsia could look like on smartphones. One can also expand the user profile by tapping on it to access various options like Volume, Airplane Mode, Auto-Rotate, battery and SIM info, etc.

Or Houston could use 6-8 athletic power forward Montrezl Harrell , who has played only sparingly in the postseason, to fill in. Harden shared the same sentiment and called on other big guys to step up with the untimely sidelining of the Brazilian center.

He offered minimal responses as he was advised of his rights and the charges that could send him to prison for 10 years to life. But Cummins' sister, Daphne Quinn, told NBC News on Sunday that she believed her brother had far less nefarious intentions.

With Armadillo, different cards can be dragged around for use in a split-screen or tabbed interface. And speaking of apps, the cross-platform Flutter SDK will allow Android developers to quickly port over their apps to Fuchsia.

This suggests that Fuchsia may not only grow to become a successor to Android, but something new that merges it with the desktop functionality of Chrome OS.

It is unclear what Google's plans for Fuchsia and Magenta are for now, and a finished version may never see the light of day. Maybe we'll hear more about it soon. This would be flanked on the top by individual "Story" cards - roughly equivalent to recent apps - as well as Story clusters, which make use of a "non-Widget class" called Panel to track the "size and position of a Story's window in its StoryCluster's StoryClusterWidget". LittleKernel is created to be used in embedded systems, giving some credit the other rumours claiming that Fuchsia is intended for some of Google's specialised hardware, like the OnHub router. Google is certainly not being very secretive about Fuchsia as all the code is sitting in plain view, but that doesn't mean we will see anything official in the near future. The feature is called Copy Less and will allow user to copy text from one app and the phone will automatically offer the suggestion to paste it at the next place you start typing in.
