Yesterday I posted about the NEW upgraded version of Vivaldi for Windows and let me tell you, it is now my default web browser. It is that good.
In follow up to that post I decided to try out Vivaldi’s new Android version and again, after some testing and trying, it to is a winner. The Android version is very close to the features of the version for Windows and it is very fast. No hurt in giving it a try…
Vivaldi is a new web browser with an integrated ad blocker, tracking protection, and useful built-in features. Browse with unique desktop-style tabs, end-to-end encrypted sync, dark & private mode. Download for free and browse fast, take notes in the browser, and capture full-length screenshots.

Splashtop Personal (see links below) is the best app I have found that allows me to remote control into a Windows computer on my home network from my Chromebook. Splashtop Personal is FREE and will only work within the same LAN (local area network), such as what most of us have in our homes. One thing to point out… The steps below will also work from your Android phone or tablet.
- If you own a Chromebook that supports running Android apps, download (and install) from the Google Play Store the Android App called Splashtop Personal – Remote Desktop. Open Splashtop and setup an account (requires that you enter an email and create password). You will be sent an authentication email to validate the account.
- On the Windows PC that you wish to control, download (and install) the Splashtop Personal App for the version of Windows you are running. You will be required to enter the email and password again in order to make the connection.
- Once the above steps are completed, open the app on the Chromebook and you should see the Windows computer where the software was installed. Make the connection and you will see the Windows computer screen on your Chromebook. On the right bottom side of the screen you will see a darkened control module that will slide out (when clicked on) that will reveal a bottom button menu and/or a top button menu. From these menus you can manage and control the connection and various options. One thing to point out… To open the “Windows Menu” and to show the “Taskbar” on the remote computer, open the top button menu and double click on the “Windows Start Menu” icon.
I have found “Splashtop” to be the best out there. When I am using “Splashtop”, I feel like I am on my Windows Computer when I remote in from my Chromebook… “Splashtop” also offers commercial versions of their remote software and apps that allow you to access a computer when outside of your home or business.

Was checking things out at Amazon to post on the blog and came across the “HP 10-P018WM Detachable Windows 10 Laptop“, which is a low end laptop that can be used as a tablet. This would be great internet surfing, videos, etc… while we are at home. What I found is that if you scroll down on the page, look for “New & Used (9) from $264.98 FREE Shipping”… The $264 price is an open box “never used” price. I have purchased many items on Amazon by looking for the “New & Used” selection and have not had to send anything back yet. In this case you could save about $70. If you don’t like it when you get it; then, simply return it.

This is a major price reduction on the “Microsoft Surface Pro 6 (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256 GB)” at Amazon… I have no idea how long this deal will last.
