Google Chrome OS for Tablets Not Happening Anytime Soon

Written on May 12, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

If you’re a tablet owner who’s anticipating the Google Chrome OS for your gadget, you might want to delay your expectations a little bit.

Even with the recent number of indications the Google may be readying the Chrome OS for tablets, the company says that its focus as for now is on notebooks.

Many were surprised last month when Google modified the Chrome OS’s source code, adding multiple adjustments for touchscreens and tablets like a new touch-optimized page.

Furthermore, when interviewed by Mashable on Google‘s plans for Chrome OS after notebooks, Google Chrome SVP Sundar Pichai said that “Chrome OS is agnostic to the hardware it runs on.“ Simply put, Chrome OS can easily be installed to tablets, desktops and other Internet-connected devices.

Meanwhile, Google is not totally neglecting tablets. Last Tuesday, Google launched the latest version of its tablet-optimized OS, the Android Honeycomb 3.1. At least there’s more to look forward to from Google Chrome OS.

Firefox 4 is Finally Here

Written on March 23, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Mozilla is, after all, still up against its increasingly tough competition, as it officially releases Firefox 4.

After months of development and several beta releases, Firefox 4 has arrived, promising faster and easier web browsing.

With its first beta made available back in July 2010, the new Firefox version now has a better interface — making it appear more streamlined and user-friendly. New features include improved “doorhanger” notifications and Firefox Panorama — a feature that lets the user organize tabs into windows called “groups”, application tabs, and a redesigned extension manager among others.

Microsoft may be back in the web browser game with its IE 9, and Google’s Chrome browser is gaining popularity worldwide, but the ‘leaner’ and ‘quicker’ Firefox apparently holds up well against its competition.

Google Chrome OS – The Things You Need to Know

Written on December 20, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

"Most of all, we are obsessed with speed. We are taking out every unnecessary process, optimizing many operations and running everything possible in parallel. This means you can go from turning on the computer to surfing the web in a few seconds. Our obsession with speed goes all the way down to the metal. We are specifying reference hardware components to create the fastest experience for Google Chrome OS." ---Google

Google changed the world. It made things easier, made lives lighter. One click on the search engine and everything you need is right in front of you. Call it spoon feeding but who wouldn’t want an easier access to things? From a search engine, to a browser and now an OS. Coming very soon is Google’s latest project, the Chrome OS. Speaking of the Chrome OS, what’s the drama behind this new thing? Will it make computers and laptops faster? Will it give people different web experience? Let AllWeLike help you with the questions that bug your brain about Chrome OS.

So, what is Chrome OS?

Chrome OS is Google’s venture on the operating system platform. It’s a forthcoming operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications and based on the open source Chromium OS project.

Chrome OS, unlike others, will not be available as a download to run and install, although Chromium OS can be compiled from source by anyone. Chrome OS will only ship on specific hardware from Google’s manufacturing partners. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, resembling that of the Chrome web browser. Because Google Chrome OS is aimed at users who spend most of their computer time on the Internet, the only application on the device will be a browser media player.

Chrome Gets Its Own PDF Viewer

Written on November 05, 2010 by B Waldorf

1 person

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.

Get Your Gmail Trends with Graph Your Inbox

Written on September 14, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Graph Your Inbox is a genius idea created by Bill Zeller. It tracks what is trending on your Gmail account with the help of search queries, and presenting then in a bar graph form. Now, you have more reason to manage and process your inbox in a more adept way.

Graph Your Inbox, a creation of Bill Zeller, is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to graph your Gmail activity over time. It searches your Gmail account via keywords, phrases, sender or receiver, and label, presenting a related data as a bar graph that charts the frequency of messages month-by-month and day-by-day.

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.

Drag and Drop on Google Mail

Written on August 04, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

Google makes life easier with the drag-and-drop function on Gmail.

Google saves the day! Saving file attachments from your e-mail had been tiresome for lazy bones out there. But with Gmail? We’re happy as a bee because it’s hassle-free.

Google has added a new feature to Gmail that lets you drag-and-drop attachments to your desktop. If you click on the Download link for your attachment you’ll see the new text prompting the “drag the file to desktop” instead of downloading the attachment. Cool, isn’t?

We tried the new feature and yes it’s good. Its easy to use. The glitch is, it’s only available to Google Chrome.

Google started adding drag-and-drop last April. A month after, it can also be used on images as well. Thumbs up Google!

The Canary Build: The Most Experimental Chrome Version Yet

Written on August 04, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

1 person

Pardon my mentioning of the obvious, but Google is thoroughly speed-conscious. Google Chrome's Dev build releases updates and awaits feedbacks from developers and early adopters on a weekly basis--but the search giant says even a week is too long to get feedbacks and then work on the iterations.

So, fast and furious the team created the Canary Build, the most experimental and riskier version of Chrome yet. Whereas the Dev channel’s update frequency runs for a week, the Canary Build will frequently release builds and will be too unstable it can crash anytime on you. With the Canary Build, Google can forgo manual testing on updates.

Developers who are bent on helping out the Chrome team in testing new features, you are exactly who Google needs, and expects, to be trying out the Canary Build. Google says they tailored this build for users who “are comfortable using a highly unstable browser that will often break entirely.” If you are the person who “like[s] to live on the bleeding edge,” this should be your ideal build of the third most popular web browser in the world.

There is a little bump on the road though, because Canary Build only runs on Windows as of its release. Well, for Mac and Linux users, we are pretty sure Google will be snappy in making things more exciting for you too!
