The Chrome browser is rapidly gaining fans and developers are responding by creating apps that will help keep you productive in Google’s browser. Add these 21 apps to a Chromebook, and you’ll have great tools for working anywhere.
Some of these apps, like Citrix Receiver, will run only on a Chromebook. Most, however, will run in the Chrome browser on any OS, and some are just links to a Web page.
Google Chromebooks, by the way, keep gaining features that make them more appealing as thin clients in a business setting. The latest update to the Chrome OS brought VPN and secure Wi-Fi support (802.1X), in addition to speed boosts. As more and more companies offer Web versions of popular desktop software, an Internet-only laptop like the Chromebook becomes a viable solution for a mobile workforce.
