Last year, we compiled a list of 15 tips and tricks to get the most out of Chrome on Android. The browser has plenty of hidden features, either tucked away behind flags or simply not pointed out by Google. Since that post was published, several of the features we highlighted have been removed (like the Chrome Home UI), and new ones have been added.
As such, we thought it was time for another Chrome tips and tricks post. So enjoy, and let us know in the comments if you know anything we didn't cover!

Google’s Chrome OS has evolved into a robust operating system with a niche focus. I have been using Chromebooks for a while now, from the “glorified web browser” days to the current all-powerful Play Store time. This page is my collection of Chromebook tips. I regularly update this list, adding new tips as they are added to Chrome OS. If you are a new Chromebook user, this is the perfect place to start!
Traditional Viruses are non-existent on Chromebooks and other Chrome OS gadgets but other threats can and do appear on the platform thanks almost entirely to Android, according to a recent report published by Malwarebytes Labs. Chrome OS has been capable of running Android applications on devices supporting Google Play since 2016. Although not all apps function properly or display correctly and a lack of root permissions generally limits what those can do to the underlying OS, that brings forward malware that's already on Android handsets and tablets. That means that, in addition to threats found across all browsers in terms of extensions and malicious ads or websites, user data theft and credential theft -- primarily through phishing -- is possible. The creation of a botnet, crypto mining, and other forms of resource mismanagement is a possibility as well as ad fraud and scams involving fake applications.

Goodness gracious, 2018 has been one heck of a year for Chrome OS.
Over the course of the past 12 months, Google's oft-overlooked "other" platform has evolved and expanded to the point where it's almost unrecognizable from its 2017 form. Chromebooks today boast a totally reimagined user interface, with more Android-like elements than ever and a strong focus on touch-friendly gestures and design. The software's current incarnation has a true tablet home screen, a phone-like floating virtual keyboard, and system-level integration of Google Assistant (in the midst of rolling out broadly right now).
