LogMeIn - What I Learned
I used the Netbook I had at night to look at the web and when traveling for general access. My primary non-browser program was Filemaker Pro.
I purchased the Chromebook to better work with my main computer when traveling, using LogMeIn - The paid version for $69.96. Essentially a one person business, I had been considering matching my desktop web design machine with a heavy-duty portable, and the Chromebook seemed like a good compromise.
1. I set my main machine to 1280x800 resolution to match the Chromebook and auto-hide the left side task bar to save screen space. I close down all the programs and reopen them so they are full screen at the lower resolution.
2. I did not realize that the Chromebook has a full screen "function" key on top. Once clicked, the system works great.
I was also concerned about cookies and history with Chrome and the Chromebook, having used Firefox saving only a few cookies and eliminating the LSO's with BetterPrivacy.
I installed HistoryEraser and that seems to do the same on the Chromebook, plus using the guest login enables Incognito for any web browsing.
