Over the past several months, many of you have mentioned that you'd like a place where you can:
This site is designed to supplement the traditional Chrome OS Help Center and focus on apps, extensions as well as dev and beta releases.

Just signed up! (time to cross my fingers :)
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Robb||2/8/12 6:00 PM|
oh yeah...this is good stuff.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||TechnoticRaccoon||2/8/12 6:00 PM|
And some of the other great guys in here were nominated by me :)
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||TechnoticRaccoon||2/8/12 6:09 PM|
Hmm, nominating someone else requires you to sign up. But what if you already did? I don't want to spam the system.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||GoingBonkz||2/8/12 7:52 PM|
I will definitely be looking forward to this! I've been a fan of the Chrome OS project since 2009, so it's definitely something I have a lot of knowledge on, and it's definitely knowledge worth sharing.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Jaxcoffee||2/9/12 5:37 AM|
Wardog for sure.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Jason C||2/9/12 5:59 AM|
TC aren't eligible.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||- Melissa Daniels -||2/9/12 9:13 AM|
You should be able to click myself and it takes you to complete. Let me check the form.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||- Melissa Daniels -||2/9/12 9:14 AM|
AH! You're right. All fixed! Thanks :)
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||spartahawk||2/9/12 4:23 PM|
Awesome. Good to see!
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Burns Newby Johansson||2/9/12 7:39 PM|
Nice. Now to spend many hours reading. :)
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Burns Newby Johansson||2/9/12 7:43 PM|
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Jason C||2/9/12 9:02 PM|
Nope we were given the heads up my +Melissa.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Jaxcoffee||2/10/12 5:38 AM|
That makes no since at all. Those who know most can't contribute? Some wiki this is going to be.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Doug Brown||2/10/12 7:05 AM|
Hmmm . . . seems to be a bit empty. Pick me. I'll help you fill up the pages.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Jason C||2/10/12 8:33 AM|
I know that I'm willing to help with any questions, but with the information we're given through Google, they thought it best we not contribute directly to it.
I'll be nominating Gurus and Wizards and others soon though.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||- Melissa Daniels -||2/10/12 5:43 PM|
You guys should start seeing some content in there now :) Thanks in advance! Looking forward to what's to come!
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Ron Stewart||2/11/12 7:03 AM|
So if we have ideas for content that we'd like to see there, what's going to be the best way propose that? Is there somewhere we can suggest topics and/or vote on previously-nominated topics for inclusion?
I'm thinking in particular about content that I am not necessarily the best or most qualified to author. As an example, I'd love to see more documentation about the available flags, along with information about potential up- and down-sides to the their use. Or recommended settings of combinations of flags for certain situations (e.g., if I am interested in squeezing as much of a speed boost out of my Cr-48 on a given channel, what flags should I enable/disable as a set?).
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Canyonsfan||2/11/12 7:48 AM|
I agree with Ron Stewart -- it would be really helpful to have information on flags and plugins.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Jish||2/11/12 8:35 AM|
Signed up. UK contributors are welcome too right?
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||TechnoticRaccoon||2/11/12 9:43 AM|
I could write one up. I do have a decent knowing of how flags work.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||rlw||2/11/12 10:02 AM|
Go for it, it's a wiki, it can always be edited later!
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||TechnoticRaccoon||2/11/12 10:05 AM|
40 flags are usable in chrome os, this is going to take me a while :(
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Brad Wells||2/11/12 6:45 PM|
Great idea. I look forward to watching this thing develop
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Ron Stewart||2/12/12 7:56 AM|
Docs for 40 flags (plus all possible combinations -- OK, maybe just the really good combinations and the really dangerous combinations) = massive good karma points...
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||mls4037||2/12/12 7:01 PM|
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||- Melissa Daniels -||2/13/12 8:38 AM|
Of course. No country restrictions here :)
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Ken Bartos||2/17/12 7:45 AM|
+Ron Stewart, et. al.
We have added information about flags to this page; https://sites.google.com/site/chromeoswikisite/home/what-s-new-in-dev-and-beta The Chrome team appears to be as concerned about speed as you and I. They already have them optimized. The available flags are more about different experiments and most are disabled by default so I wouldn't go turning on any of them unless you really need the feature they are intended for and then be ready to restore your system if something goes wrong (read that as; have a current restore image handy & nothing important on the file shelf).
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Selden||2/18/12 7:09 AM|
I haven't looked at flags for a while, but I noticed some welcome improvements in Google Chrome 18.0.1025.32 beta, namely a list of which OS's a flag is applicable to, and a redundant Sorry, this experiment is not available on your platform. Nice going!
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||JLakad||2/18/12 7:00 PM|
Selden on the wiki there is a nice explanation regarding each flag type and if it will do you any good to enable it.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Jish||2/19/12 12:49 AM|
Melissa I'm having trouble signing in on the Wiki. I'm signed in to my Google account but it still says "sign in" at the bottom of the page and when I click it I'm directed to a multiple sign-in page. Any ideas?
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Ryan Hellyer||2/27/12 11:20 AM|
Thanks for this. It's really handy to see what's coming up in the dev and beta branches.
I suspect this will be a fairly small wiki. Chromebooks are pretty simple, so hopefully not too much stuff needed to keep people informed. Handy to have what information we do want all stashed in one easy to access (and update) spot though :)
A section on setting up Chromebooks to dualboot will be of interest to many people. Not sure if that's the sort of thing you want in a Chrome OS wiki or not though.

|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Brady Dale||3/9/12 6:46 AM|
I just got mine! It's so exciting. I have wanted one of these since the rumors started to circulate when Chrome first started taking off! I actually won mine in a contest Google Philly ran, which is so dope because I could not justify buying one. But I promise to help spread the word about them and brag and brag about how cool it is.
I find it beautiful and small. Even though I know it is nothing but web, a part of me still wishes there were a desktop, even if the desktop just had icons that related to your apps. Still, it's awesome.
Two weird experiences so far. I turned on CAPSLOCK somehow and it took me a while to figure out how to turn it off. Got it now (obviously).
Also, I wanted to take a photo with the build in camera (I have a Samsung Chromebook) on Facebook to go with my "I'm a Chromie Now!" Status update, but Facebook could not find the built in camera. I have no clue what to do about that.
Still, very excited. I love Chrome. This will be a great second computer. I can't wait to add some apps and etc. Also: chiclet keyboards - why do they build keyboards any other way? So great.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Ken Bartos||3/9/12 7:07 AM|
Brady, to get your camera working on Facebook go here http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager06.html and select always allow for Facebook.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Kenneth Endfinger||7/7/12 10:07 AM|
It hasn't been updated in a while. I am waiting to get added so I can update it.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Rej||7/9/12 3:05 AM|
I am too much interesting to the new chrome device I would like to give some my idea to share here…
Chrome device connected to TV.! And another product Google TV also android Phone.
Merge all with a single box and connect to monitor/projector/TV.
If possible to merge single unit… this technology will boost google feature…
Unfortunately I don’t have any Google TV or chrome device…
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Mark||7/28/12 9:56 AM|
Just popped in and noticed this new wiki-wicked guide. Excellent. ::Mr.Burns::
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||KIPPY||8/13/12 6:40 PM|
Hi am a new user...how do you turn on the volume?
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Masonicmoron||10/19/12 2:29 PM|
Welcome to Chromebook Central please could you start a new thread with your question
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||chung vu||11/19/12 8:47 AM|
Can I install audio editing software ?
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Joe Ellett||11/19/12 9:08 AM|
No, you cannot install any programs whatsoever.
What you have available to extend the functionality of Chrome OS are extensions, available at : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/home
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Michael McGuire||11/30/12 4:43 AM|
It would be nice for members to have a way to flag responses they think should be in the wiki.
Does the Groups API provide the group owner/maintainer the ability to search based on a flag; i.e. the up/down votes? If so, then there could be a wiki vote flag that the wiki maintainers could search on for inclusion candidates.
|Re: Introducing the Chrome OS Wiki||Mark Goho||4/6/13 9:39 AM|
Hey Melissa, I got an invite to be a contributor a week ago or so but haven't heard anything since. Any idea what's going on?
