Following its FAQ page, I came up with the following to let me get going:
term_.prefs_.set('background-color', 'white') term_.prefs_.set('foreground-color', 'black') term_.prefs_.set('font-family', 'monospace') term_.prefs_.set('font-size', 12) term_.prefs_.set('scrollbar-visible', false)
I didn't really mean to, but I ended up not opening any program other than Chrome over the weekend. It was rather a fun experience.
I do have to run a few local programs from time to time (e.g. GnuCash, Gimp, and Kid3 come to mind), and I do not think I can switch entirely to a Chromebook yet, but I should be able to survive for a few days with only Chrome.
