    I know you can use this from Google mobile apps.
    I thought you can also use this from Chrome? Is this possible? Are there any other Google apps like docs that are now using cloud print?

    I've only used it in Chrome (and on my CR-48) and from within Google Docs mobile. I have the print button in a word document, but can't find it in spreadsheets. I have found it to be less than reliable - sometimes a print job will be queued, go through, but never end up being printed.

    Oh, and you need to keep Chrome open all the time on the host printing PC. Close it, and all jobs will just queue up.

    That's kinda a deal killer.

    No kidding. I was curious about how this worked, but having to leave Chrome open all the time on the host computer, as well as having to just leave that computer on all the time, makes this a less desirable solution.
