Try out Chrome’s new ultra fast search tool for Android before the rest of the world

google search

After caving to pressure from Russian regulators regarding Android, Google is hard at work tweaking its mobile operating system and web browser so that they mesh with the country's requirements. The Chrome web browser on Android will allow users to swap out Google search for something else if they want, and as part of the agreement the company reached with the Russian government, a new search widget has to be rolled out to all Android devices sold in Russia. But in an apparent effort to make the prospect of switching from Chrome as unappealing as possible, the new widget is undoubtedly the fastest way to perform a web search from an Android device. You can try it out now and see for yourself.

Google isn’t afraid of Microsoft’s Chromebook clone, for obvious reasons

microsoft surface laptop

Google's Chrome OS and Chromebook computers are a bit hit among students from high school through college, thanks in no small part to their extreme affordability, ease of use, and overall simplicity. Yesterday, Microsoft announced Windows 10 S, a stripped-down version of its ubiquitous operating system designed with students in mind, along with the sleek, lightweight Surface Laptop. With Microsoft making such an obvious attempt to impose on the Chromebook market, you might expect Google to be on the defensive. Well, they're not, and in an interview with Business Insider, one Google executive even boasted that Microsoft's announcements were "validation."

Chrome adds support for a newer GIF-killing format

GIF alternative: animated PNGs

The internet would not be the same place without GIFs. The antiquated file format is central to our very important online meme culture, but the format itself is terrible. The images are huge, and restrictions on color, bitrate and frames per second all show that the GIF is about a decade past its sell-by date.

Writing an actual format to replace the GIF isn't hard -- it's getting it to work universally that's the trick. Animated PNGs, or aPNGs, just took a big step towards universal acceptance with the latest release of Chrome.

Google is fixing up Chromecast’s ‘Cast a tab’ feature and you can try the new version now

 I’ve been saying it for a few years now, but I really, really like the Chromecast — Google’s simple little dongle for streaming Netflix/Hulu/YouTube etc. from your devices to your TV with just a tap or two. It does what it’s supposed to do, does it well and doesn’t try to do anything more than that. Well… that’s not entirely true. Read More

Irony: Advertising giant Google wants to block ads inside its Chrome browser

Google Chrome Ad Blocker Feature

Google makes most of its money from advertisements. The company also makes the most popular internet browsing app out there, Google Chrome. In fact, chances are you already see plenty of Google ads right inside Chrome, which is probably how Google wants things to work. However, the company is about to make an unprecedented move, one that looks like a shot in the foot: Google intends to build an ad-blocking feature that would be enabled by default right inside Chrome.

Beware Google Chrome scam that could inject malware into your computer

1487792451719

A Google Chrome scam that could infect your computer with malware continues to pose a threat to users, according to cybersecurity experts.

Last month security company Proofpoint warned that hackers can inject script into poorly-protected web pages. The script, which targets the Chrome browser on Windows, rewrites the compromised website on the victim’s browser to make the page unreadable and creates a fake issue for the user to resolve.

Microsoft bombards Windows 10 users with popups for its bad Chrome extension

Microsoft popups

Every time it looks like Microsoft has learned its lesson, it goes out and finds an exciting new way to make people angry again.

Just last week, in response to criticisms regarding data collection on Windows 10, the company announced that it would introduce a new privacy dashboard and simplify the privacy settings set up experience. It's a step in the right direction as the company attempts to regain the trust of its users, but now, a week later, reports are circulating that Microsoft is pushing desktop popups to Chrome users on Windows 10.
