Chrome 11 and Gmail +’s and -’s

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

I opened up my laptop today and noticed something funny about the Chrome web browser logo.

It seemed to have morphed into even more of an old style camera iris and less of a UFO-looking thing.

Turns out, Chrome had just updated itself––icons included–to v. 11.0.6+.

Maybe this update will fix all of the flashplayer crashes I seem to get with Chrome (usually in Gmail, I might add).

Gmail has also just added a “feature” that lets a user give a + or -, to each “conversation” so that google can get a better idea of “what’s important to you”.

I’m not sure google needs any more information about me, so I’m probably gonna let that “feature” languish.

Webstore for Google’s Chrome

Monday, April 11th, 2011

With the advent of Google Chrome 10 (simultaneously released with Firefox 4) the Chrome App Store is available whenever you open a new tab in the browser.

There are many free apps, most of which are geared towards the Android smartphone users and not the desktop or laptop user browsing at home.

I have focused on the games so far––no surprise there–and many of those have disappointed.

However, if you are a fan of 80′s arcade games you will find a lot there to keep you happy.
