10 great productivity web apps for your Chromebook and Android phone

Web apps come in all forms and shapes, but Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are some of the best as they're basically a marriage between native applications and websites. On Chrome OS, they come as close as can be to proper programs, many complete with offline support.

How to make Android use the DNS server of your choice

The Web as we know it today is powered by a technology called the 'Domain Name System,' also known as DNS.
