Chrome OS is evolving at a rapid pace these days and that includes a large number of UI and UX changes that bring the operating system more in line with Google Material Design. Even the yet-to-be-announced Crositin Project for Linux apps on Chrome OS is getting the MD treatment with a polished look to make […]
Tips & Tricks
Of all the things we share with our readers, we get some of the most positive feedback concerning our tips & tricks articles. As many aren't fully familiar with the ins and outs of Chrome OS, these articles provide interesting and useful info for new and experienced users alike.
We’ve been talking about Chromebooks, Linux, containers, and running all of them together for quite some time. The dream? A simple, user-facing solution for running native Linux apps in Chrome OS. After all, Chrome OS is basically just a customized distro of Linux, so all of this isn’t that much of a stretch. For some […]
With Chrome OS 65 rolling out a few weeks ago, we promised to cover some of the new features that were included in this latest update. Keeping to that promise, we wanted to do a super-quick video showing how to get the animated avatars up and running. The process is insanely simple and surprisingly fun!
At the end of 2017, an odd bug showed up in Chrome OS that caused some issue with users’ ability to control the size of elements on the screen in Android apps. For many of us, until the bug began being pointed out, we didn’t even think about resizing the display for Android apps. After […]

Google has, in various ways through the years, attempted to allow users to pull text from images. Be it Google Drive, Google Docs, Translate or some other service, there have been some pretty solid tries to convert images to text by Google. To this point, none of them have been viable, useful tools for actually […]
Another day, another Chrome OS UI tweak. If I’m being honest, the frequency of these UI changes probably excites me more than anything at the moment when it comes to being a Chromebook user. I love the idea that our OS is evolving and changing right under our feet. I also love that Google is […]
I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time online. Between getting work done, learning new things, watching videos, engaging in social media or just having fun, I find lots of stuff online I want to share or comment on every day. Many times, I want to share a website or picture […]
Let me say this up front: using Google’s image search to steal images and use them as your own is at best dubious and at worst theft. That being said, there are plenty of legitimate uses for the now-defunct View Image button that used to accompany images when searched on Google Image Search. I’m not […]
Sure, Smart Displays were all the rage at CES back in February, but that doesn’t mean the biggest display in your home isn’t getting in on some of the Google Assistant love as well. Not long ago, Google rolled out a feature for Chromecast and Google Home that can give all of us a bit […]
We have a few articles now talking about this much-anticipated feature finally making it to Chromebooks. We’ve tracked it from a commit to the Dev Channel to the Beta Channel and now on the Stable Channel.
