What it is: Google Cloud Print is a great way to share your printers with someone else; all you need is the Chrome browser.
A friend needs to print something? They could send you the file, you could save it, open it and hope it looks the same, doesn’t contain any malware, you have the same program and version, and then print it. Or they could install the necessary drivers, software, and then come over and configure a new printer. Or, you can just share the printer with them (like you do any google doc), and it will appear in their list of printers available to them (at least from Chrome). No additional software to install, no special configuration, just select that printer in the list of available printers.
