The Chromebook, first impressions

devrel 26 giu 2023

As you may have seen in my previous post, I recently got myself a Chromebook. After spending some time getting used to the device, I have to say I'm impressed. It's fast, lightweight, and integrates seamlessly with Google's ecosystem.

One of the first things I had to try was using my Ledger Nano device for FIDO authentication, also called two-factor authentication, which is required to log in to my Google account. To my surprise, it worked right out of the box without any hassle.

As I started dive deeper into the Chromebook workings, I began to look for tips and tricks to make the most out of it. That's when I discovered the developer mode, which I promptly activated. However, this resulted in a reset of the device and I had to start the configuration process all over again.

Thankfully, I found some amazing resources on YouTube to help me out. Adrian Twarog's videos on Chromebook tips and tricks were incredibly helpful, and I highly recommend checking them out if you're new to the Chromebook world.

Now that I've got my Chromebook set up the way I like it, I'm excited to dive deeper into its capabilities and see what it can do. Stay tuned for my next post, where I'll share my experiences using the Chromebook for my daily activities.

See you then!
