Is it possible to work from entirely within a browser?
Is it possible to work from entirely within a browser without touching the native OS?
The browser that best fits this way of work is Arc Browser about which I have written previously. It is a Mac Only browser based on Chromium and currently in limited access beta. As such it allows for installation of all Chromium or Google Chrome Apps. Here are the tools that will make it possible to work entirely from within a browser without touching the native apps. These things and applications depend on one’s use case, but mostly these are possible
- Google Docs
- Microsoft Office Suite
Data analysis and spreadsheets
- Rstudio cloud or
- Rstudio hosted instance
- Google Colab
- Google Meet
Programming and code editing
- Meta: here is a page that lists several of these tools, see https://geekflare.com/online-code-editors/
PDF reader and annotation and reference management
- Built in within Chrome
Audio file editor
