We are doing exploratory testing against a web-browser based application on ChromeBook.

I have never worked with a ChromeBook laptop before, is there any specifics we need to pay attention on when testing a ChromeBook?

What I can think of are:

  • ChromeBook tend to have a low RAM comparing to other laptops.
  • ChromeBook runs on Chrome OS, which may present a compatibility issue to some applications.
  • ChromeBook is low on hard drive, which may limit on how much you can download from the internet.

Here are some of the issues which may you will face with Chromebook.

  1. Chrome Os is Frequently crashing for No discernible reason
  2. Chrome cannot properly load a web page, it will give you an odd “aw snap!” error that means the web page tried to load but crashed instead.
  3. Sometimes unnoticed issues like plugged-in headphones that may need to be removed before you can hear sound normally.
  4. Chrome OS will occasionally run into a problem where it will keep reloading browser tabs – over and over and over, slowing down everything else.

For more details please have a look Chromebook

  • Have you got sources for any of these issues? All of them seem like speculation, or problems that aren't specific to a Chromebook. For example, "plugged-in headphones that may need to be removed before you can hear sound" - does that not apply to all laptops?
