Why should I use Chrome apps for EBSCOhost, EBSCO Discovery Service or Explora?

If you use Google Chrome, there are several benefits to using the apps:

  • Apps install quickly, without restarting your computer or browser.
  • Your apps are always available when you sync apps across multiple computers.
  • Apps are always up-to-date because they are hosted on the web.
  • Apps won’t crash your computer. If you have trouble with an app, close its tab.
  • You can easily find and open the app using app launcher.
