These web apps will revolutionize your Chromebook experience

Chromebooks are great (I'm writing this article on one!), but they're different than the laptops you're probably used to.

Nothing can be more frustrating, not to mention disheartening, than arriving at a place only to discover how inaccessible it s. It is nearly impossible for one organization or company, even for Google, to keep track of all that information, which is why the search giant is now tapping all Google Maps users to at least help people prepare better.
