So I just gave a #Gemini client a try on my #Chromebook. #Lagrange is a really nice browser and runs quite well. It's really nice how #ChromeOS integrates with #Linux apps as well. I can click on a Gemini link in my #Mastodon #PWA and it opens in Lagrange seamlessly. Likewise, if I click a #web link in Lagrange, it opens right up in my main Chrome OS browser. Chrome OS is a Linux distro, change my mind! Best of the web, best of Linux, best of #Android. Love it!
Every six weeks is like getting a brand new computer with #ChromeOS. So many new features to play with in version 88 both in stable and behind flags. Most of them I already knew about from my tablet though which is on beta channel. In case you haven't already figured it out, I am a total #Chromebook nerd!
Linux Hot Take
#ChromeOS is a #Linux distribution. Yes it's a weird one but that's why I like it. To me it's kind of like Qubes OS only lighter. Everything is sand-boxed and isolated and I love it, and #opensource #web #apps run wonderfully on them. Plus I can securely run all my favorite Linux apps. Love it! I might start trying my hand at web development next which is super easy on #chromebooks nowadays.
Linux Hot Take (Disagreements Must Be Constructive)
God, I wish Chrome OS wasn't so delightful to use. The fact that Google uses it as a spy machine is pretty unsettling. I did take some time yesterday to block as many of the Google tracking features as I could find. I'll have to find out where the read/write screw is though so I can try installing Linux on it or something. #SurveillanceCapitalism #Google #DeleteGoogle #ChromeOS #Chromebook #Linux
I'm sorry but Firefox has never worked for me, Chrome has always worked better and is more secure. Sure, Google can be a real tyrant sometimes but they did make a good product. With a few settings tweaks and extensions I can limit the data Google can collect on me and there is always Chromium for the Open Source purists out there. There, I said it. #browserwars #firefox #chrome #chromeos #chromium #opensource #google #technology
