I'm pretty impressed by the speed and usability of PWAs. They have a ton of functionality (offline data storage and access to a device's sensors / camera, to name a few) and behave like native apps in terms of resizing.

AMD is looking to get its chips into Chromebooks, which will take on Intel's up-to-now lock on the devices from an x86 perspective. Kahlee will run on AMD's Raven Ridge processors and support 1366 x 768 displays.

I’ve already showed how to run full Linux apps on a #Pixelbook using Project #Crostini but this video explains both what Project Crostini is and how it works.

Google Smart Lock can manage and remember your passwords on a #Chromebook, but it can actually generate strong passwords for you too.

Here's how to set it up and use it.

Lots of work to be done yet but I like what I see so far!

Looks like the Files app on #Chromebooks will get a new "Manage in Drive" option that redirects to Google Drive for advanced options.

Although I haven't seen the issue on my Pixelbook, I saw some folks on forums and social media saying their device was randomly rebooting every few minutes. The good news is that Google has fixed the Pixelbook reboot issue with a minor update to version 65 of the Stable Channel.

Here's how to check your Chrome OS platform version to see if you have the fix.
