Chrome OS also doesn’t support launching external applications from browser links, which runs very contrary to how Android apps handle links. For example, if you were to click this link for Fallout Shelter on an Android device, it will open directly in the Play Store so you can install it with one tap.

It’s amazing it took us this long to add one of our all-time favorite apps to the pack, but it’s here: F.lux is a genius little app that sits in your system tray and change the color temperature of your monitor based on the time of day. As the sun sets, it gives your screen a slightly orange tint so you aren’t taking in all that blue light that can disrupt your sleep and cause eyestrain.
