Earlier Google revealed about their Chrome OS Specifications and Cr48 giveaway to developers for testing. Now there is a major change in Google Chrome OS by removing the Caps Lock Key from the Google Chrome OS.
Its a major decision by Google to remove the Caps Lock key from the Keyboard.
According to techi.com
In lieu of the caps lock key, Google inserted a search key. What is a more common activity for the average person when at the computer, typing in ALL-CAPS or searching?
Being bold enough to say the obvious, that more people search than type in ALL-CAPS, signifies progress. Evolution. The key is not a necessity anymore. If one were to need to type in ALL-CAPS, the option is still there. There’s just no key on the keyboard.
From the tutorial for the CR-48.
If you really need Caps Lock so you can post an INSIGHTFUL COMMENT ON YOUTUBE, click the wrench, click Settings, and then go to the System section to change the Modifier Key from a Search key to a Caps Lock key.
Oh, and for you power users, here’s a tip: Press Ctrl-Alt-? to display the keyboard shortcuts.
