Suggests you to ditch the Internet Explorer. Well, here is something to kick start your morning. According to one of the redditors, the New York Public Library suggests its uses to ditch IE and use Google Chrome instead.
This man is safe, for now…
Your dreams come true with Google Chrome.
If you always wanted to use a stylus or even a joystick to steer your web experience, now you can as the latest Google Chrome release includes a support for two mice or any other devices that can be plugged to your computer.
Thanks to a new multitasking feature, two users can surf the web at the same time and on the same computer. If that doesn’t sound too exciting, you can always play a video game while pretending to do something productive.
You can download Google Chrome Multitask Mode from the following web site and yes, it was April fools joke, the most useless day in all year.
Google funded study confirms.
Accuvant, the US based research, firm has published a new study, which compared security features of the three most popular web browsers: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox.
As it turns out, the search giant funded study has made a conclusion that Google Chrome is the most secure browser out there, followed by Internet Explorer and Firefox.
After such claims, Mozilla has decided to respond with the following statement:
“Firefox includes a broad array of technologies to eliminate or reduce security threats, from platform level features like address space randomization to internal systems like our layout frame poisoning system. Sandboxing is a useful addition to that toolbox that we are investigating, but no technology is a silver bullet. We invest in security throughout the development process with internal and external code reviews, constant testing and analysis of running code, and rapid response to security issues when they emerge. We’re proud of our reputation on security, and it remains a central priority for Firefox.”
So here you have it folks. Despite continuous IE bashing in various communities, it still managed to beat Firefox in a non-biased study.
What do you think?
With the growing popularity of HTML5 games and applications, it looks like Google has a vision of its own.
According to the EDGE, during the Develop Liverpool conference in London, Google’s developer Paul Kinlan has announced that Google Chrome will receive gamepad support tin the first quarter of 2012. In addition to that, it will feature a support for cameras and microphones that don’t have to be plugged in.
While not many details were revealed, it is known that the search giant is already working on the next instance of its Google TV service, with the hardware set to debut sometime next year.
Why add gamepad support anyway? If our speculation stands correct (and only time will tell), we guess that Google Chrome will be an essential part of Google TV, offering its users an ability to play HTML5 games on their TV with a gamepad attached. Think about it as Google’s version of a gaming console.
Makes web a beautiful place.
Google Chrome has recently unveiled a recent project of their own, called “Johnny Cash Project”.
What is it all about? The search giant has asked Johnny Cash fans from all over the world to come together and create a memorial music video for his last recording.
The final result is amazing and can be viewed in the following page.
Most Desktop and Mobile Platforms: There's no shortage of digital comic book readers out there, but new service Graphic.ly stands apart: instead of downloading CBR files, you build up a library from their web store and sync it across all your devices. More »
First person shooters are next.
As of today, it will install games without your permission. However, manual removal is possible.
Ever finished firing off a lengthy email and wondered, "Dang, I wish I knew how many WPM that was"? No, me either. But still, as a guy who writes a lot and often gets asked by people how fast I can type I just may give Typing Speed Monitor for Google Chrome a try and see what it tells me.
Install the extension and it takes residence in your browser actions area. As you type, it'll record your speed and monitor how often you press each key. In addition to good ol' QWERTY, Dvorak and Colemak keyboard layouts are also supported. TSM's pop-up heatmap provides detailed stats about your typing including CPM, WPM, total time, and keypresses per key.
No, 61 really isn't that great... But go easy on me, it's six o'clock in the morning and I haven't had any coffee yet.
Maybe I should re-read Jason's post on how to touch type like a keyboarding ninja...
Hitler thinks that Chrome, his favorite browser, is the fastest. But he is about to discover that he is wrong, and his generals will experience his wrath!
Remember those Chrome speed tests? Well, apparently the guys at Opera saw them too, and wanted to one-up Google. The only issue was what approach to take. Google's tests are apparently very well funded and are done by a large crew of dedicated professionals.
PR budgets and relative size differences being what they are, Opera wasn't left with much of a choice but to play the underdog card, ... and they played it hard.
In a highly scientific speed test, you can see a couple of overdone Norwegians trying to pit the Opera browser against the time it takes to cook a potato. I don't want to ruin the end, but let's just say that Opera does come out on top.
As luck would have it, there's one in the Extension Gallery now! Air Hockey features three difficulty levels and it's good, mindless fun right inside your browser. Yes, this is pretty much just a a Flash embed in an iFrame, but it's still enjoyable. As a bonus, Air Hockey keeps tabs on your best score so you can feverishly flaunt your repeated dominance -- or remind you how badly you suck at the game.
Nothing like the feeling of emasculating yourself against a computerized opponent by scoring an own goal....
