This book has been a great help to me in moving to the Google Chrome browser.
This browser does not have a menu bar at the top of the screen so that you don't initially know how to get things done. Nor is it intuitive. Nor can I find a complete manual on how to use it. The big benefit of having no menu bar is that you have more desktop space.
This book has 3 main parts.
Part 1 is a general introduction.
Part 2 - Taking Chrome Browser for a Spin - has 3 chapters:
Chapter 3 - Browsing the web with Chrome is ever so clear and gives you the start you need.
Chapter 4 - Customizing Chrome and
Chapter 5 - Surfing with a Net: Security and Privacy
The rest of the book is Part 3 for users of Google Docs, Gmail, Google Reader, Google Calendar, Google Maps and Picasa Web Photo Albums.
A major advantage of Chrome is that whatever you type in the address bar immediately also accesses Google Search. This saves you a lot of time and aimless wandering.
It is a great browser and I have now made it my default browser.

This easy to understand book covers all the basics of Chrome - and then some. Definitely worth purchasing if you want to master the best browser out there! It's full of little tips and secrets that I had no idea about.

Reading this book a good way to understand what is roaring down the pike. Turns out the future is already here and you don't have to wait for Google Chrome laptops to experience it. The Chrome browser will get you on the cloud right now and help you understand what is going on. Read this well written and clear book to get started today. It's a manual to the future of computing.

If you want to know more about using Chrome this book is a good resource. It shows you how things look on your screen when you click on an icon or a tab, walks you through menus, etc. The Chrome OS updates itself so there may be some things in this book that are no longer current, or you may have a different version, such as the version I have with Logitech's Revue Companion Box with Google's Smart TV. But I find it very helpful because it provides definitions and explanations that I can't always find with Google Search. I'm still reading the book, but I find myself saying, "Oh...THAT'S what it's for..."

Chrome OS is the absolute easiest operating system to use, and this guide is truly unnecessary (no matter how technologically incompetent you might imagine yourself to be). Also, with the continual updating of the operating system (every couple of weeks), most of what this guide describes is several versions out-of-date.

Comprehensive account of how to use Chrome OS and primary Google products. Doesn't pretend to be an under-the-hood manual; but provides everything you need to know to get up and running in these products.

This book had lots of good information, and I thought I was going to be able to get a jump on the game while I waited for my Chromebook to arrive. When it did arrive, I discovered the book's information was way out of date, and a lot of it's illustrations, and instructions were no longer current with the current state of Chrome OS. I had to stop reading the book a quarter of the way through, a just explore the OS on my own, and watch as many of the latest youtube videos as I could.

The author gives information that is useful to both newbies and experienced users alike. It is to bad that the book is out of print now and hard to come buy. I recommend this to anyone looking to speed up their google experience.
