Virtual desktop computers come to Chrome OS. The first glimpse of how this goes to work came up in February, and now there is a new video on how the function is developed. And it looks amazing.
Because Chromebooks have grown in both function and popularity, this is a feature that many users have requested for myself. If you are able to switch between multiple screen layouts for different missions, there will be a problem improving the workflow on Chrome OS, and the implementation shown in the video looks great.
All that said, this is still a very early and, above all, unfinished appearance on how "virtual desktops", as they are called, will work. First, we know that the number of desks will be limited to four. It's understandable, especially considering the lightweight hardware available in most Chromebooks. Comments on the video also note that desktop buttons or mini-views have not yet been implemented. Again, it is understandable as this is still very much in development.
While we get a better look at how the function should work, there are still many unanswered questions. For one, how much of a hit will this have on the system – especially lower Chromebooks? I have been able to tie my Pixelbooks 8GB of RAM on more than one occasion with a little more than a lot of Chrome tabs, so I can only imagine how it will be when I can keep multiple apps open on multiple desktops.  Secondly – and probably the more significant question – when can we try it? As if Chromebooks "Kevin Tofel points out, it will probably be Chrome OS 76 early. I'm just happy to keep my Pixelbook on the developer channel, because this is a feature that I absolutely can't wait with [via About Chromebooks]

In some interesting scientific news, scientists have found that the "water world" exoplanet completely covered by a large sea – is not only common in our galaxy, but has more water than imagined. We talk massive water here; potentially thousands of kilometers deep. Of course, the world of science is still technically hypothetical, but the new research, combined with computer simulations, shows that planets that were previously considered to be gas with thick atmospheres are actually water worlds. Neat. ! [Gizmodo]
