It works fine.  It's still just a web page.

Minor problems, that most users won't even notice.

Things like tabbing through player game plan page rather than clicking each time, chromebooks put you in a different spot, so you have to hold tab down for a while to get it into the fields you can fill in, etc.

But very minor stuff. It works well for the most part.

EDIT - you also lose some forum functionality. Text only - cannot add formatting, hyperlinking, images, etc.

I haven't had that issue. Are you on a chromebook, or just the chrome browser?

...nor a Windows 8 OS using Chrome browser. I've been using it a few months with no problems on HD or any other websites.

I'd never get a Chromebook because they don't run Silverlight and a couple other add-ons I'd need, but I did take a long look at what they can do a few months ago when I was shopping for a new machine... very impressive for the price point. Have fun shopping.

On my Droid, I cannot read any pop-ups except for play-by-play below the original screen plus a few lines.  I cannot see the team profiles, boxscores, etc.

Browser.  IE works fine for updating practice, Chrome just sits there and thinks until forever.

I can read every popup on my Droid (Motorola) using the standard browser.

I updated my practice plan this morning using the Chrome browser on my laptop. I got the "Success" message in a snap.

Chrome isn't the issue; I have yet to find a site I can't use with Chrome.

its a shame it took 20 years for the chromebooks to actually come out, i think they were one hell of an idea, 20 years ago. but i guess the internet was too small, microsoft too evil. thing is, today you can get a regular laptop for a few hundred, so why do you need a browser-only box? save on software? 

even 10 years ago, i think the internet was big enough, and laptops expensive enough, for a browser based OS to make major headway in the laptop market. but i think today, i just dont see the mass penetration that was possible back then.

DAMN 1300 bucks for a chromebook pixel? well ****, i thought that would be like, the 350 dollar big brother to the 250 dollar regular chromebook. it seems pretty far fetched to be able to sell large quantities of those, when you can get a full featured high end laptop instead. i mean, im rooting for them all the way, but still...
