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.

Chrome for Android adds offline downloads for everything

Chrome for Android Offline Downloads

Netflix a few days ago rolled out a feature that makes binging even better. Offline movie downloads let you watch your favorite shows on an iPhone or Android device even when there’s no internet. You only have to download them to your device and go about your day. But what if you could also download everything else on your mobile device, to consume without worrying about internet connectivity or data caps?

Google’s next major Chrome update will reduce RAM consumption by up to 50%

Chrome Update
Google's Chrome web browser is widely regarded as the best browser in the world... probably because it is. Chrome is feature-rich, fast and extremely versatile thanks to a terrific ecosystem of third-party extensions. Other browsers from Microsoft's Edge to Mozilla's Firefox have been gaining in certain areas recently, but no other software offers the all-around experience Chrome affords. Of course, nothing is perfect and that goes for Google's web browser, too. As anyone who uses Chrome knows, it can be a huge memory hog, especially for users who leave multiple tabs open all the time. There's good news to be had, though: An update is coming that should have a dramatic impact on resource consumption.

Microsoft used fudged tests to pretend the Edge browser is actually good

Browser Battery Life
The inbuilt Windows browser, whether you're talking about Internet Explorer or Edge, mostly exists to be the butt of bad jokes. But Microsoft has greater aspirations for Edge, and it's working hard to make it a real browser. It's made grown-up browser things like extensions and an engine that isn't lamentably slow, and it's all kinda coming together. But not fast enough, which is why Microsoft had to "intelligently" use test results to make it seem like Edge is a competitive browser. For shame, Microsoft.

Hell yeah, Chrome is finally going to block Flash

Flash Chrome
It's been years since Flash did anything useful, unless you count munching on all my RAM as 'useful.' Just like the Java plugin before it, Flash is dying a slow and ungraceful death, and Chrome is trying to help it on its way a little. In a blog post today, Google announced the next step in ridding Flash from Chrome. Starting with Chrome 53 in September, the browser will automatically block background Flash content. In December, Google will go further, and only show the HTML5 version of websites. If a site is Flash-only (because apparently that's still a thing!) you will have to specifically enable Flash for that site. Or, y'know, go back and make a note never to visit again.
