I am unabashedly a strong proponent of Chrome. It’s my go-to browser, and I even picked up a Dell Chromebook 11 a couple months ago to do essay writing on. While I find it great that Chrome ties into Google’s services nicely (and is a rock-solid browser), it’s the number of apps made for it that really sell me. That said, I recently discovered there are a few Serial Terminals available for the platform.
Available for free, the Diginow Serial Terminal lets you interface with everything from old computer hardware to newer Arduino boards. Although there are a number of other terminal applications available, this just happened to be the first one I installed and it seems to do a good job at what it advertises. It will most likely even replace my use of Putty’s serial interface, and may just make me dig that Arduino board I have out of storage to give it another try.
So if you’re in the need for a good serial terminal, you don’t have to look much further than your browser.
