Tip: Add Aditional File Systems to Chrome OS

Leo Laporte's tip on This Week in Google 353 is for adding additional file systems to Chromebooks. This includes Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, FTP, WebDAV, and more. So if you have a Dropbox account, for instance, and want the files to show up as part of your file system, you can just add it.

If you have a secure FTP server running, this would be a great way to add additional storage for your Chromebook. To do this, just open the "Files" app in the launcher menu. Click "add new services" in the sidebar and then you'll have the option to browse the Chrome Web Store for available services.
