- No Function Keys (F1 - F11)
- No dedicated Home, End or Delete Key
- No Caps Lock
What Google has done is given a reference to what a keyboard on a computer built for the web might look like. In place of the typical function keys Google has added a row of keys each dedicated to a function of the netbook. They have keys for:
- Navigate Forward/Back (2 keys)
- Full Screen
- Switch Windows (Same as Alt + Tab which also works)
- Brightness Up/Down (2 keys)
- Volume Mute, Up/Down (3 keys)
Perhaps the one thing about the keyboard that makes it seem like a web based OS is the key map overlay you can display to figure out all of the alternate key options. Home, End, Delete, Print Screen and other options are all available, if you know the right keystrokes. The map helps you to learn them all, and reminds me of the Google web apps which often feature a way to list keyboard shortcuts as an overlay.
|Easy to figure out what different key combinations do.|
As to the lack of CAPSLOCK? Good riddance.
