Chromebooks (and Chromeboxes) Can Now Open 7z, ISO, RAR and Many Other Newly Supported Archival Formats

I have written often about the many advantages of Chromebooks. (That includes Chromeboxes as well.) Now there is news from Google: Windows has supported these for decades, so it’s awesome to see Google’s operating system have some much-needed feature parity for users who receive zip files or other formats from their co-workers, peers, or even family members. Now, with the release of ChromeOS 101, this is finally coming to the masses!

Formats supported include:

7z

bz2

crx

gz

iso

rar

tar

tbz

tbz2

tgz

This update will be rolling out to all ChromeOS operating systems in the next few days.
