Printing Via the Cloud

Google is looking at the possibility have printing via the cloud instead of locally. Using the Google Chrome operating system, you would ask to have a document printed, the request would go to Google Cloud Print, which would route the job to the correct printer, and return the status to the user. No more printer drivers!

Chrome OS is being developed as web-only software, so it makes sense that printing would also be web-only. In addition, devices are now being sold that don’t have printer ports. This would be a great addition for them.
