Are you big saved tab groups user in Chrome? Google planned to put these in the side panel but that effort is on hold. And I’m OK with that.
I figure most Chromebook users are happy with up to four virtual desks to boost productivity. Google figures I might be wrong. Code is in the works to add eight, or potentially sixteen virtual workspaces to Chromebooks.
Over the last few weeks, code for an upcoming new light and dark theme on Chrome OS has made great progress. Take a look and you’ll see it’s now an easy switch when the feature arrives, likely in Chrome OS 88 for Chromebooks.
The Chrome OS user interface is gaining a little more parity to macOS and Windows as you’ll be able to switch between dark and light modes. Here’s a first look at them.
At long last, the media info and controls on a Chromebook aren’t above the notification stack. The latest Dev Channel of Chrome OS 87 moves them to your choice of two much better places from a user interface perspective.
Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t stand the Chrome OS media playback controls showing at the top of my notification stack. Chrome OS 87 could change that, bringing media controls to the Quick Settings of Chromebooks.
Are you one of those Chromebook users like me, sometimes with dozen or two open tabs? It gets tricky to navigate to the right tab but that appears to be changing with Chrome OS 86 and the new tab search feature.
A new “Global Media Controls” icon looks to be arriving in the system shelf with Chrome OS 86. Might this have to do with Kaleidoscope, the reported video streaming aggregation interface for Chromebooks?
It’s past time that when hovering over a Chrome OS browser tab, the pop-up info looks like it was designed in 2009. Chrome OS 76 brings a much cleaner looking tab hover experience on Chromebooks.
