Google's Chrome OS runs on Chromebooks built by different manufacturers. Various applications can be installed via the Chrome store but there's no straightforward way to install Tor.

How could one set up Tor to run on a Chromebook or any device running Chrome OS?

(I'm not looking to just proxy Chrome through another Tor'd device like this page suggests, even though it is a decent idea.)

Have you considered something like tails? Can the device boot a USB? – Neil Neyman Dec 14 '13 at 15:21

Currently it seems like the only options involve either using a proxy on an external device as you listed, or rooting and dual-booting a linux distro (eg chrubuntu) on the chromebook.
