Chrome OS 83, which is also on the developer channel, has an updated Linux terminal, bringing with it a range of new features, including new themes and customization options, according tomedia Android Police. Chrome OS app is available for Chromebook users who use Linux features.
This feature provides a complete Linux development environment where they can easily install popular open source software such as GIMP, LibreOffice, Firefox, and more.
Android Police says the terminal application on Chrome OS has barely changed since the Linux container was first released, and it’s just a single window with text. In the new version of Chrome OS 83, the Linux terminal brings a series of changes, offering new tabs, preset themes, customizable text colors and fonts, and cursor options.
The subject settings portal has also been improved. Previously, you could set it up with the shortcut, Ctrl-Shift-P, and now the tab bar now includes a menu button that takes the user directly to the theme selector.
In addition, one of the highlights of the new version is the new tab layout, with built-in terminal programs that provide support for multiple labels.
There’s no doubt that this terminal tool is more user-efficient and customizable for those who use Linux on Chrome OS. Users who run Chrome OS on the Developer Channel will soon be able to get updates.
