    Very much so, especially since the latest update brought Play Store support to many more models. Google still calls it beta, but I've been running several productivity apps on my Flex 11 with no major issues.

    I would be very interested in such a forum.

    My ChromeOS device is used daily at all times throughout the day.

    I haven't experimented too much, but Word and Excel are running fine. The Youtube app is a good workaround for playing 1080p/60 content without the massive dropped frames that you would experience when using Chrome. On that note, it blows my mind how Google has still not yet optimized this type of playback on its browser for low-power devices, yet Edge works perfectly.

    Chrome is lagging behind Edge by quite a bit. I'm frankly surprised. I may end up transitioning to Edge full-time since I currently use Firefox when plugged in and Edge while on battery. I tried Chrome briefly but I couldn't put up with the horrible UI and poor performance. (No idea why it runs like crap on my system)

    Unfortunately, Edge really isn't an option for me, as I rely pretty heavily on Google services, for which Chrome obviously has the best overall integration. The cross-platform syncing (Windows, ChromeOS, Mac, iOS) works flawlessly, and it supports VPN.ac SecureProxy. The latter works on Firefox as well, but I'll be in the cold ground before I touch that abortion ever again.

    I use edge, Unless something does not work correctly....I get surveys from time to time and linking in edge does not work, but it does in chrome....So I use it then.

    We'll get the Chrome OS forum created soon, I put the request in today. Thanks for the feedback.
