Welcome to Chrome Story. I am happy to see you here on my blog. I started using Chrome on the very first day of its release. In fact, I made it my primary browser that day and never stopped using it. I also started using Chrome OS and Chromebooks from the very early days. Chrome Story is my way of exploring and sharing Chrome and Chrome OS related news and tips.
I have written more than 3300 articles on Chrome Story. Most of them are news stories and “How To” articles. Some however, are very detailed resources. If you are a blogger, you’d call them “cornerstone content’ or “evergreen content”. This page showcases the best of Chrome Story.
If you are new here, this is where you should start. Let’s get started with Chrome OS and Chromebooks, shall we?
