Version 43 of the Chrome OS Beta Channel has dropped this morning. There’s the usual array of performance improvement and bug fixes, but for those of you interested in a bit more detail; Google have posted some “highlights” in their Google Chrome Releases Blog one of which particularly is going to be a big benefit to those of us that spend lots of time on our Chromebooks.

  • Autofill settings for credit cards from Google Wallet
  • Enable always-on “OK Google” from anywhere when screen is unlocked on new Chromebook Pixel
  • Physical keyboard auto correction
  • Material design for Virtual keyboard UI

So now all I need to do is get my hands on a new Chromebook Pixel to try out the changes.

Does Google’s continued updates to Chrome OS give you confidence to venture into the Chromebook world, or is there something missing that’s preventing you from doing so?
