While writing this I got an update! This is the version on the beta channel.
0.9.128.14 (Official Build ede4cb9c) beta x86-mario
I originally started to write this about the lack of updates but we shall see what happens. I don’t know what has changed but the following list is my wish list.
- touchpad is just terrible. The gestures only work part of the time. Random gestures seem to happen all the time on maps and other things like mindmeister.com
- sluggish. It really feels like it is getting slower. It could be must me but it just doesn’t seem to be as quick as it was originally.
- brightness buttons stopped working. The update didn’t fix them. The work now. Don’t know what happened.
- Adobe Flash playback could be smoother. Not sure what needs to be done for this. Might not be powerful enough to play decently on a TV output.
- Not sure why but it doesn’t seem like web apps are syncing with my other computers. I had to install scratchpad manually on another computer but I did see imo instant messenger looked available.
- That’s really it for now. I’m still loving it. If I owned a larger company I would definitely want to test the concept of giving them these chrome books and pair it with a virtual desktop like citrix through the web.
