Facebook has poached Matt Papakipos, the lead engineer behind Google's important Chrome Operating System initiative.

Papakipos, who last November introduced Chrome OS as a fast-loading cloud operating system for netbooks, announced the move in a tweet on Twitter June 28: "Now that Chrome OS & WebGL are in good shape, it's time for something new. I'm going to work @ Facebook!"

Google commented: "Matt made great contributions to Google, and we know he'll do the same in his next endeavors. We wish him the best."
