Put frankly, it has been a scary couple days to start 2018 when it comes to computing in general. If you’ve been around basically any tech site on the internet, you’ve likely come across the latest mega-issue plaguing what seems to be every device on the planet.
The bad news? It’s incredibly widespread. The good news? Your Chromebook may already be patched and has the ability to employ a new feature that will help mitigate your vulnerabilities. Let’s talk through a couple things you need to know with regards to your Chrome device, Meltdown, and Spectre.

Can't live without a particular Windows program? Here's the trick for running it on your Chromebook.
For many users, cloud-based Chromebooks offer a great mix of simplicity and affordability, free of some of the hassles associated with Windows PCs. But of course there's a downside to that: Google's operating system doesn't run Windows software.
If you occasionally find that to be a problem, particularly when you're out and about, there's a solution. Chromebooks can access Windows apps, and in fact can run Windows proper -- after a fashion. (Pro tip: This works with Mac and Linux systems as well, but for purposes of this tutorial, the focus is on Windows.)

Android apps are finally expanding to just about everyone with a recent Chromebook, but they’re still not “done.” There are still a lot of limitations with Android apps on Chrome OS, but one of the biggest flaws is about to be fixed in Chrome OS 64.
Since their debut on the platform, Android apps on Chrome OS have had the limitation of pausing activity whenever they are not in focus. There are exceptions to the rule, like Spotify, but apps with real-time data and various games pause whenever you click out of the window. For those coming from other platforms, that can be seriously annoying.
However, Google is fixing this very soon.
