The Chrome Book (Fifth Edition): The Essential Guide to Cloud Computing with Google Chrome and the Chromebook

LOTONtech Limited

NOTE that this book has now been superseded by the newer book "Your Chromebook" by Tony Loton

Welcome to the brave new world of cloud computing—a world in which locally installed programs and local data are replaced by applications and data in “the cloud”, which can be accessed from anywhere in the world using any compatible device. A world in which everything is centered on the Google Chrome web browser running on an Android phone or tablet, a Windows PC, or a dedicated Chromebook computer.

Now you don’t need to worry about installing and configuring software, backing up your data, or protecting your computer from viruses. And you don’t need to worry about having access to your important documents and other files while travelling.

Now in its Fifth Edition, The Chrome Book is the Essential Guide to Cloud Computing with Google Chrome and the Chromebook. This most comprehensive and up-to-date edition is packed full of information, tips and tricks to help you get the most from your cloud computing experience with the Google Chrome web browser and (optionally) the Chromebook computer.

Welcome to a new way of working…

..and playing.
