  • ChromeMusic: Each cloud-based application, in this case, Google Music, gets its own full window.

  • Chromfilesystem: While ChromeOS is designed so that you'll spend most of your time on the Web,
    you can save and use files on a Chromebook's built-in solid-state drive.

  • ChromeDoc: The bad news is that you can't do everything you'd want with local files. For example,
    if you try to open a Word document file from the file manager, instead of launching it in Google Docs,
    you get a message telling you to upload it to Google Docs. That's not terribly helpful.
