The Chromebook we deserve?
Google's chromebooks seem a little... half assed to say the least.
Why can't they implement some common sense features to make it a full PC replacement?
We as google fans deserve better.
Allow offline downloading of any web app. Just have developers check a box in the manifest to certify that downloading the web page isn't going to cause massive usability problems.
Packaged web apps that run native code need to get here sooner.
Folding in the Chrome web store to the Play Store
Integration of the file system with Google Drive and have 64GB of SSD storage. 16GB is sad.
1600 x 900 13.3" screens, i5 Ivy Bridge processors, Intel HD 4000 GPU, and 4GB of RAM.
Pinch to zoom, two fingers to scroll, 3 fingers swipe to next app, 4 finger pinch to go to apps.
A bottom bar that looks like Android with a back, home, and multitasker buttons and a notification area on the right side.
Two finger swipe gestures should be able to swipe away apps and notifications.
A two finger reverse pinch should expand the notification highlighted by the pointer.
The bottom bar should have a little arrow pointing up next to the multitask button that when clicked or the mouse hovers over it, reveals pinned apps in a dock and the icon to go to apps (like Jellybean).
Two finger swipes should be able to swipe through app screens.
A widgets tab in apps like Android. Make some useful desktop widgets like an email inbox widget that can also craft new emails and replies without opening the app.
Adopt more Holo design aesthetic.
A partnership with OnLive for games.
Better apps! I use stuff like Scratch for program concepts, Camstudio for screen recording, Gimp for photo editing, and Audacity for autotuning. None of these exist in the Chrome store. Get these apps a web app version.
Are there any killer features you'd like to see in Chromebooks?
