    Back in February, commits to the Chromium codebase revealed that Chrome OS could soon run Linux applications using a container. Though it was possible to run Linux application in Chrome OS using the crouton, it only works in the developer's mode.  Perhaps the new Google's solution might presumably work better and doesn't require Dev Mode to be enabled. Today we see more evidence of this feature, and it appeared in the Chrome OS Dev channel. According to Reddit users, a new Terminal app has been added to the app drawer, and clicking it opens a dialog explaining the feature. This feature is very much identical to the concept posted to the Chromium Gerrit in February. However, the when trying to install the terminal app, it returns an error which indicates that the feature is not functional yet. But it is very interesting to see Linux app support come together, but we need to wait for some more time before the feature goes official. Source | Via

    Google started rolling out 'My Saves' or Saved pages in the last September. It is a mish-mash of your saved bookmarks while browsing search results in the Google app, and Maps lists. However, Google is starting to replace it with 'Collections.' Since it is a server-side rollout, it is entirely upto Google whether or not you will be able to see the more modern interface where the saved lists are now called "Collections in the Saved pages either through the Google app or by navigating to google.com/save. It will be laid out more compactly, and tapping on any collection opens up a list of cards, but unlike before they're now spanned in two columns instead of taking up a row each. However, the functionality doesn't change, it remains the same, you can create a new collection and move items between collections, you will get automatic lists from your Favorites and Google Maps lists, but you can't search through your items or share an entire collection. Other changes include the ability to choose a cover photo, add a description to a collection, and have automatic lists for recipes, videos, jobs, and more. As we mentioned above, it is a server-side roll out, so not everybody will get to ...
