While Facebook is busy blocking Google Chrome's Friend Exporter, the search engine giant unleashes Takeout.

Facebook is trying to block Friend Exporter. It is a Google Chrome extension that enables users to export the contact information of your Facebook friends for use in other services.

The Facebook Friend Exporter lets the user grab several phone numbers or informations from the user’s Facebook friends’ account — directly importing the said informations into Goggle Contacts. However, the tool doesn’t work anymore, but the its developer promises to build and maintain a new version. However, CNET said that the tool might go against Facebook’s Terms of Service, which states “you will not collect users’ content or information, or otherwise access Facebook, using automated means (such as harvesting bots, robots, spiders, or scrapers) without our permission.”

On the other hand, Google still take the opposite stance and launch their newest tool that will let users to export all the user’s data from several Google services. This tool is called Takeout.

With Google Chrome 9 hitting the web, something new comes along -- the Chrome Web Store. Are you ready to redefine your meaning for "program"?

Last Thursday, the latest version of the Google web browser – Chrome 9 – just hit the web. But more than that, the Chrome 9 comes with a variety of new features including hardware-accelerated 3D graphics, Google Instant and its Web Store. It was announced that the Chrome Web Store just opened to everyone in the US, and has been added to the New Tab page.

The significance of Chrome 9’s Web Store is its attempt to redefine the idea of “program” in people’s minds. It’s a thing that Internet users will likely see in the future, as companies like Google and Apple tries to give “program” a new meaning. And in an effort to do that, Google will push the Chrome Web Store harder and harder to be the next big step in using the Chrome OS.

Check out the video after the break to understand more about Chrome Web Store.

Chrome Gets Its Own PDF Viewer

Written on November 05, 2010 by B Waldorf

Viewing PDF file using Chrome causes headache to many people. But finally, Google came up with its very own PDF viewer. It is still in beta so first thing first, switch first to beta.

For the fans and supporters who are way too loyal with Google Chrome, viewing PDF files in the browser is such a pain in the ass. Good thing Google is rolling out a better way to view PDFs on Chrome. Chrome’s built in PDF reader will be available in beta versions only. If you are using the non-beta Chrome then download the beta to get this update.

“To open a PDF document, you’d typically need to install additional software or browser plug-in in order to view it in a web browser. With the integrated Chrome PDF viewer now available in Chrome’s beta, you can open a PDF document in Chrome without installing additional software. The PDF document will load as quickly and seamlessly as a normal web page in the browser,” said Googler John Abd-El-Malek on Google Chrome blog.

Good job for Google for creating such innovation. This does not mean kicking Adobe on the shins but simply finding faster way to manipulate PDFs.

Happy 2nd Birthday to Google Chrome!

Written on September 03, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

After ten years of existence, a new bolder Chrome is unleashed.

Time flies so fast. It’s hard to believe that it has been two years since the Chrome browser first showed up on web. During that time, Chrome undoubtedly took over the 7.5% of the browser market all over the world. It was obvious that Internet Explorer and Firefox took the 60.4% and the 22.9% of market share. But that is 10 years we’re talking, and Opera holds a little less than 2.4%. Impressive performance for Chrome.

Now on its second year, Google has established a stable foundation for Chrome 6. Making itself known as “The Modern Browser”. The Chrome 6 are gifted with lots of improvements but still focused on the Speed and simplicity.

Like the summer release, the version is tagging along the Adobe Flash built in. With the top notch HTML 5, it is simply the browser we need.

With the predominance of HTML 5, we are trying hard not to imagine the cyber world not growing under the wings of Chrome.

Schedule Your Gmails with Boomerang

Written on August 17, 2010 by Japhet Writ

1 person

Boomerang is a Chrome and Firefox Extension that helps you schedule the emails you send and receive for a later time. It's currently in private beta and still working on some bugs. But it sounds promising, isn't it?

If you are having a hard time acting on all the email that gets in your inbox, then Boomerang is for you! Boomerang will let you schedule your emails whenever you want them to reappear. What’s best is that it even works for sent times, so you can postpone delivery of a happy birthday email for a friend, in case you remembered to send it a few days earlier.

Just place a Boomerang drop-down menu in your Gmail message bar, and viola! You can now start choosing your message schedule in a specific time. However, options like in an hour, tomorrow and next week are also available. There’s no need to enter a time stamp or an exact date if you’re not a fan of it. Instead, you can input things like “next Wednesday” or “Today at 5:00 pm.” Just a reminder, Boomerang only shows up when viewing or composing a single message. As of the moment, you can’t schedule multiple messages at once. And since it is still in a private beta, expect some bugs. If you’re using Chrome, the Boomerang button might not show up in message view. Don’t panic! Just reload the page.
