Windows 10 is catching up with all the other operating systems by offering better support for ARM processors, but this means third-party developers will also need to work on making their apps faster in the new ecosystem. Google now seems to have begun work on Google Chrome for Windows 10 on ARM, with a little help from an unexpected ally.
I am a proponent of ARM laptops, simply because of their long battery life and fanless operation. While I personally do not use Chrome, there are many applications that rely on it, such as Discord, which I do use every single day to hang out with friends and play games. Slack, which I personally don’t use but is a hugely popular application, also uses Chrome.
Most programs are coded for x86. Since most things in Linux land are open source, they can just be recompiled for ARM.
Though I would love an ARM laptop, for what I use my laptop for, it’d have to be beefier than your flagship phones are…
The ultimate would be if there were such a device that could be my phone, or if I plugged it into a dock, I could still use my dual-4k monitor setup with mechanical keyboard
