Please, guys - Why don't you update the Google Talk plugin in the ARM Chromebook?! You have been pushing both that Chromebook and Hangouts very hard lately. All the more embarrassing that it is running a very ancient version of the Google Talk plugin. Several Hangouts apps just don't work because of this

On my ARM Chromebook...the Ctl-M shortcut combination does not minimize any windows?

I echo Techlink's comments about Ctrl-M on the ARM chromebook.

Also, what does the "Updated Netflix plugin" mean to the end user? I tried Netflix and it didn't work.
