a Google event taking place in San Francisco. From what we knew, this event was expected to focus on Chrome OS, but it seems as if there’s more to tonight’s event at 6 PM. According to TechCrunch, the Front End Engineering Open House (as the event is called) will feature “presentations on Google Maps and Chrome OS, YouTube will be unveiling their new look and showcasing YouTube 3-D.”

Did you get the last portion of that sentence? YouTube will be unveiling their new look and showcasing YouTube 3D!? Of course, let’s not confuse things by saying that the new look or the 3D version of the world’s most popular video sharing site will go live tonight, because it’s not.

At this point, we know about as much as you do with regard to this event. To make matters worse, Google has banned the press from attending, which doesn’t make this very much of an “open house.”

They were banned because PC World spilled on the event.

Trying: code.google.com/chromeos with a French browser redirects me to : code.google.com/intl/fr-FR/chr ...

Public website going live soon ?

To restate what was already quoted in the OP <<Of course, let’s not confuse things by saying that the new look or the 3D version of the world’s most popular video sharing site will go live tonight, because it’s not.>>

Case closed? Sounds weird to me... don't see why TC would provice a fake quote, “presentations on Google Maps and Chrome OS, YouTube will be unveiling their new look and showcasing YouTube 3-D.”

Anyways, has anybody else noticed rounded corners on YouTube videos? I started getting this a couple days ago i think. How new is it?

For me it's about 3 days old.
