ChromeOS ssh has gone! (sort of)
I’ve no idea when this happened, and I’ll admit that the advice it gives is advice I’ve mostly being following anyway for quite a long time, but it seems that ssh in the ChromeOS terminal has been removed. This is what just happened when I tried to use it just now:
To be fair, Chrome Secure Shell is pretty damn good and has served me well for the past couple or so years, working well on the Chromebook and on Windows 7 and 8 (and also now on the Mac, although I’m tending to use ssh in its native terminal more).
I wonder if any other of the limited features of the ChromeOS terminal (in non-dev mode anyway) are going to go the same way?
As an aside to the above, something kind of ironic happened as I was writing this. I opened Chrome so I could preview the post as I was writing it and I suffered one of Chrome’s rather common extension crashes. Look what one of those extensions was (and I wasn’t even using it at the time):
Not exactly the best advert for the non-optional replacement.
