Not many people are aware of this fact though, but it’s true – Google is providing the Linux based support for the Chrome OS users. Even though the process is going slow, it is happening! This application support is mainly targeted towards the developer people out there, but there are a few apps that can benefit the normal users as well. We are going to check them out here.
Best Linux Apps for Chromebook 2019
Our ultimate goal is not to offer you the best Linux apps, rather suggest the options which are way better than the Android or Web-based apps.
Yes, you guessed it right. This application is similar to the Microsoft Office or Google Doc. However, these apps won’t open any kind of file format. They also don’t offer much offline support too. Get the LibreOffice that supports a massive number of file formats including WPS Office, Microsoft Office, StarWriter, etc.
Visual Studio Code
Once you have used the Visual Studio editor, you may not like any other coding editor. It comes with the auto-complete feature for popular language, debugging, GIT support, etc. You can increase the functionalities using the extensions and by adding more themes.
Yes, you can get the Slack – desktop chat app now for the Linux platform as well. Currently, the app is only made available in the beta version. You can use this version and send in your suggestions and feedback to the developers.
This is an Email-support made by the GNOME project. Most of the email apps provided by the Android don’t support well with the large screens. If you are in the search of a desktop-support email client, then you can go with the GEARY application. It has a clean user-interface, and probably the best choice in the lot.
FireFox: Desktop Browser
Chrome is the main browser for the Chrome OS, but it’s always good to have one different browser running as well. No matter if you want to test a website or just feel to try something different, you can install the FireFox and browse away.
