#79 Chromebook - Browsers you can install on Chrome OS

Hi ya!

Have you ever used the browser, Chrome? Do you like it? Not like it? Like it enough where it’s usable but not really your type of browser?
Well, if you’re on Windows (for example), and don’t like Chrome much, you can always install another browser like Firefox, Opera, etc.

But what if you’re on a Chromebook? Can you install Firefox? Opera?

The simple answer is yes.

The complicated answer is it’s complicated.

If you have vanilla Chrome OS, then you can’t install any type of browser other than what’s already been installed - Chrome.

If you have Linux installed on Chrome OS, then you can install any browser that is supported by Linux.
