  • Surprise of the century: Microsoft doesn’t like Google Chrome IE Plugin…

    Whenever someone takes your work that you spent many months developing and nurturing like a small baby child and then goes and rips the guts out and calls it home is rather disturbing and maddening. Such are the feelings Microsoft is feeling after the Google Chrome IE plugin we recently talked about. The plugin essesentiall allows Google Chrome to run inside of a frame within IE. All in all it makes using IE much less painful and actually worthwhile. Microsoft however sees it differently and...

    So your corporate IT policy requires you to use the ever popular though web standard deficient and downright pokey IE? Well, now's your chance to give them the sly finger and have the last laugh. Google has released a rather clever little plugin for IE that will allow you to run Google Chrome 3 inside a frame within IE. The IE Google Chrome Plugin allows IE to make use of a whole host of open source technologies with one of the more popular goodies being HTML 5. Of course, IE isn't really ...

  • Chrome version 3 officially released.

    While some of you may still be chugging along on Chrome 1.0, or, if you're like me running a beta build of 4.0, the announcement of version 3.0 becoming officially declared "stable" will have multiple meanings. For some, it will be time for a big update. For others, it will be old news. Regardless of which category you fall in to, Chrome has accomplished quite a lot in the year (plus a few days) that it's been available. With dramatic speed improvements -- 150% in javascript since beta 1 t...
  • Opera Mini 5: The Next Generation in Mobile Browsing

    Packin' a mobile device that either doesn't have a browser that's up to snuff or simply prefer the processing power and light load of Opera Mini? Good news...perhaps. A new teaser on Opera Mini's site shows the simple tagline: "The Next Generation in Mobile Browsing". What will it bring to the hot mobile browsing front? Will it decimate all other competitors? We'll just have to wait a little longer as all of that information is relegated to "coming soon" status. See, it may not be the gr...
  • Chrome: 1 Year Later

    **Image taken from Mashable** Look back in time to the year 2008 (so long ago...I know) and try to remember when a little browser called Chrome was released into the spotlight. At first, there was a ton of fanfare and downloads as geeks and even non-geeks alike rushed to download this new hyped up browser. After the hype faded, it seemed that only geeks and internet junkies kept using Chrome. Through the trials and tribulations this past year, Google's wonder browser has accomplished some ...
  • Sony *hearts* Google: All Sony Vaios to come with Chrome Browser pre-installed…IE gets the shaft.
    by Mike
    Posted September 1st, 2009 at 9:39 am
    While Microsoft's dominant position on the browser market has been the un-toppable empire, the age of IE is finally (and thankfully) starting to come to an end. Over across the pond in Europe, Microsoft now has to include other options in Windows installs for browser downloads. However, stateside here we're taking a slightly different approach. Since there aren't any legal boundaries here, manufacturers are taking a different approach. Sony announced today plans to include Google's Chrome ...

    Browser junkies or those of you who aren't quite down with IE, Firefox, or some of the other competitors in the market who take a special liking to the big red O have reason to go through this Tuesday, September 1st of 2009 a bit happier. The final verision of Opera 10 has been released and is ready for you to give it a full flogging. The most notable feature you'll notice at first is the more polished interface that looks less 2004 and more 2009. Some would call it very Safari-like. To ea...
  • Download Offline Google Chrome installer [How-to]
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 1:07 pm
    Google Chrome is my new favorite browser. I like the style of it, the speed, and the way it renders web pages. For me, it's all good. However, the one thing that bugs me about Chrome is that Google only offers an online downloader meaning if you're in an area void of any internet connection, you're out of luck. However, there is a super simple way to get the entire download in one file so you can install it on internet-less machines 'till your hearts content. Want to know how? Come on in...
  • ChromePlus: Adding IE-tab support and so much more to Google Chrome since…NOW
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 8:07 am
    Even though Google Chrome doesn't enjoy as much success as IE or Firefox, it is still a very capable browser that in it's current Beta 3 form is of the quickest browsers around. It's lightweight while still looking relatively stylish. I personally like the style though some may find the playskool-ish style a bit to childish for their tastes. Moving on, one thing that draws people to Firefox are extensions, extensions, and more extensions which allow you to customize Firefox to the moon and ...
  • Google Toolbar not supported on Google Chrome (What?)
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 8:46 am
    Minor mixup perhaps? If you're a Google Chrome user and just so happen stumble upon Google Toolbar eager to try out the screen real estate properties, you're going to find yourself pretty bummed out and if you happen to have a tail...prepare to have it hanging low and center. While it isn't a big deal in the slightest, the fact that two Google products don't work together is rather humerus. As this little image and story spreads, expect Google to fix the issue rather quickly. But for now, ...
  • RIM gobbles up Torch Mobile. Webkit BB Browser on the way?
    by Mike
    Posted August 24th, 2009 at 10:30 am
    While I currently use an iPhone (for the time being) and am setting my sights on Android as my next purchase, I still have a place in my heart for RIM and their beloved BlackBerry. Even though the OS looks and operates as if it were written in 2004, the sheer simplicity of any type of messaging on a BlackBerry is hard to knock or challenge. Since the iPhone and Android have ushered in browsers that are actually worth doing any type of mobile browsing on, BlackBerries have struggled to keep u...
