Who has a good, google home page on their desk top? I use "Start" but it could be better, not like the old google version.

Recently I have set my Acer C720 to open a couple of set tabs. This appears to be working on my laptop (Windows 10 technical preview) but not on the Chromebook. Does anyone else have this issue, or have a suggestion to fix it? I've changed the OS channel and it persists after changes, and several powerwashes.

I would like to see even the memory locality on the Chromebook.
This depends on the number of activated extensions and particularly of the open tabs. With only 2 GB of RAM, it can be quickly narrow.. Please check the Task Manger.

Hey, do you know rollApp? This site lets you use ordinary programs like GIMP and (soon) Android Studio (and a lot more) through the internet, so it can be accessed by a chromebook!
https://www.rollapp.com/

It also can be synced with Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive...

Please give it a try and share it with your friends, please. :)

Do you think #Chrome  will ever have a wallpaper selection utility that features rotating wallpapers and bulk-add of a folder of files?

doesn't seem that hard to designate a folder in Drive to be the source of your rotating wallpapers! I hope they add this soon. Thanks +Joshua Lunsford

"Continue where you left off" not working on Chrome OS?
In the settings under "On Startup", I've selected "Continue where you left off" so that the browser will save my tabs when I close it. This works fine on Windows, but on Chrome OS, it seems to just ignore the setting and just show me the New Tab page when I open the browser. 
I'm guessing it's because the browser never actually "closes", just hides away, and thus doesn't remember what tabs were open before ending the process.
Have other people gotten this setting to work correctly?

I've tried setting "Continue where..."....shutting down/boot up......then opening tabs....closing browser and launching again; but those left open tabs aren't automatically showing up.....tho' remain in Recently Closed.....
I'm using Dev OS with no flags having been altered.
Submitted a report.........

New Spotify app for Chromecast
 
When casting a tab with Spotify, do you ever wish it looked nicer?

The following is a new bookmarklet app out that simplifies the look of Spotify and Grooveshark on your tv when casting a tab.  It also pulls album art and description from Last.fm.  One big thing I like about it is the fact that is just a simple bookmarklet, so it uses up just a fraction of the system resources that an extension would.  Important on a Chromebook.

Personally, I am still holding out for an app or button that streams the Spotify service straight from the internet to my Chromecast. However, this app does make Spotfiy look a lot nicer on the tv.

You can find out more about the bookmarklet from the Developer here:

More Acer Chromebook delays
 
Well, the 25th of February has come and gone!

Today was the day that our first retailer, B&H Photo Video, had estimated that they would be receiving the new Acer 15.6" Chromebook models.  As seen in the image below, that is no longer the case.

I gave B&H Photo a call to try to get clarification on the new models and expected arrival date. They contacted their distributor who now states that Acer no longer can give them any idea on when they will get product. So that is where we stand on that model.  I will be sure to let everyone know if that status changes. You can follow along with all the new Chromebooks here:

Problem Connecting to OpenVPN.
Yesterday I was trying to connect my Chromebook to my OpenVPN network. I added certificates, etc. However, the configuration dialog insists that I need a user name and password. Umm... excuse me the whole point of certificate based authentication is that you don't need these.

I can't close the dialog without entering something in these fields, so I enter some gibberish and close the dialog hoping that OpenVPN will just ignore it. However, the Chromebook won't connect and says there is an "Internal error". I have probably done something very simple wrong, but after more than an hour of trying to find an answer on Google I am no further on. Can anyone pint me in the right direction?

+Ron Morell I seem to be having a problem with my ONC file. As you say I don't get any feedback, but I don't get any private networks  appearing in the Connection part of the settings page.

I have checked the ONC file and pretty sure it's correct.

Edit:
Seems Chrome doesn't like carriage returns in keys. Now have Private Networks available in Settings. I'll let yo know how I get on.

Hi, I just want to know if it is possible to use the Kindle Ebooks Cloud Reader on a Chromebook?
I can do that with a chrome browser in windows, but I am not sure if the chrome browser is the only prerequisite for reading Kindle Ebooks over the web.
I think about buying a chromebook and this would help me to convince myself that I need one ; )
I already asked Amazone and got the feedback that it will not work on a chromebook, but I am not absolutely sure about the competence of the responding person.

Please feedback, thaks for your help!

Yes, I use the Kindle Cloud Reader app. With it you can log into your account and all of your ebooks are available to read, at least the few I have are.

Anyone else get the "Stuttering" effect in Youtube videos if Chrome is open for too long?  Used to happen to me, but seemed to fix itself over time.  Asking for a friend...
