Google Chrome OS Update, Changes Bring VPN Support & File Manager

When Google released the Chrome OS-based CR-48 notebook many long-time computer users took a while getting to grips with the new cloud-centric operating system, well today we are hearing that a new update for the OS has been rolled-out and with it came some major changes.

Prior to the update Chrome OS offered no way for you to properly access and manage locally stored files, the update is said to add file management support which allows you to view, edit and move files and folders which are stored on both local storage and and external storage devices. Also this allows you to easily select and upload files.

Enterprise users were probably wondering whether Google would both adding VPN support, well this new update has added just this and should allow people to share files and folders which are stored on a local network rather than the cloud.

The changes are two fundamental parts of any modern-date operating system and are great for those of you who do not want to fully commit to the cloud just yet, we wonder if Google have any more major changes in store for us over the next few months.

What features do you think Chrome OS needs?
