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

If you use a Chromebook or another Google device with a Chrome OS, there are several benefits to using the Chrome 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 the app launcher.

Note: Users of Windows, Mac or Linux platforms will not be able to load Chrome Web Apps. You must be using a Chromebook or other Chrome OS device.
