    Are you an plugin person? Users of Firefox no doubt know about and/or use one or many of the countless plugins available for Mozilla's mobile crawler. Everything from easily finding torrents to listing email messages in the browser title bar can be had with these browser add-ons. On the Google/Chrome side, end users have been clamoring for plugins ("extensions" on Google's side) since the browsers release a little over a year ago. As is customary, Google has been working at break neck pace, ...
  • Google Chrome for Mac within days…maybe even hours….

    The few Mac users out there actually waiting for the official beta won't have much longer to wait. The evidence is in the "Mac Chrome Status Page" -- or what was the Status page. It has since been revamped and now displays "Mac OS X Roadmap". The weeks and weeks of waiting will soon be coming to a close. I guess those last 8 bugs that were keeping Chrome in that developer stage weren't so bad after all. (Or the devs never slept, ate, and wore diapers....) Of course, also seeing verbiage th...
  • Chrome for Mac to come in a tad underweight…

    I can't wait for Google Chrome on Mac. Almost since day 1, it replaced Firefox as my main Windows browser and over the last couple of weeks each build release has inched closer and closer to perfection. Granted, I use perfection loosely, merely using it to describe a "finished", stable product. While we can expect a Chrome 4 for Mac of some sort in the next couple of weeks, it will be far from perfect, finished, or full featured. Features such as bookmark manager, mutli-touch gestures, gears...
  • Chrome OS revealed!

    Google junkies and all around simpletons with curiosity bouncing off the charts in regards to Google's Chrome OS can finally have some visual treats to munch on. Taking a quick glance above, you can see that it's a lot like the Chrome browser. To some that's good, to others it's bad. It's highly effective though. After going through several different live blog events, the ease at which you switch between browser tabs and applications tabs really does blend the whole desktop/cloud line. But ...
  • Latest Google Chrome 4.0 beta brings 30% speed increase, cross-computer bookmark syncing

    I love Google Chrome. So much so that I even use the nightly builds on my MacBook Pro. On my Windows machine, it's Google Chrome 4.0 beta all the way. It's extremely fast and efficient. But it's getting faster. The latest build, Chrome brings a 30% speed boost compared to previous versions. Now again, Chrome is already fast so a 30% boost in this sense is roughly a couple tenths of a second. You're not going to notice it like you would going from say IE 6 to Chrome 3.0. Regard...
  • Chromium coming to Mac before ball drops into 2010?
    by Mike

    If you haven't been following the daily builds of Chromium for Mac, you may not realize just how far along the browser has come. In it's current form it has pretty much replaced my need for Safari on my Mac, though occasional crashes and glitches to rear their ugly head from time to time. Though such things are expected on a beta product that isn't supposed to be released until 1H of 2010. Contrary to earlier reports however, Chromium Mac users may be getting an early Christmas present fro...
  • 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...
  • Just in case you were wondering…Chomium latest build *barely* misses perfect Acid 3 test
    by Mike

    While many people could care less about acid3 tests and numbers, it is no doubt a reliable way to determine whether or not a browser will render the content of the web correctly or not.  As websites become more feature rich and packed full of content, having a browser that doesn't follow proper HTML rule and displays everything in a jacked up manor is not a pleasant site to say the least.  While Chromium for Mac is still in a very early stage, it has come a great ways since it was first re...

    Google Chrome fans who have been desperately waiting for some Google love for there Mac now have a small reason to start the day off a tad happier.  If you a mildly techie, the latest builds of Chromium for Mac are actually pretty good.  If you live and die by Flash and aren't the greatest with DIY installs, you still may want to hold off a bit longer as flash isn't yet supported out of the box.  Speed wise it is fast.  Very fast.  Safari 4 beta would be a good example. is th...

    Those Mac users and Chrome hopefuls who are waiting for their chance to use Google's wonder browser natively on the Mac's still have a bit of a wait ahead of them. According to a "state of the browser" address by several bloggers and developers working on the Chromium (Mac verision) browser have said that they would be "very surprised and unhappy" if there wasn't a functioning public version by fall. Yes fall. It seems so far away. So far they have cocoa shell wrapped around Chromium but i...
  • Google Chrome now available in 2.0 flavor

    The little browser that everyone had high hopes for and hyped up has done just "ok" if usage numbers are taken into account.  However, for a techie like me, Chrome has proven to be a fast reliable browser that I use daily.  Good news for all Chrome users out there as Chrome has been given a new badge called "2.0 beta".  In actuallity the change is that big that it needs a completely new version number but I digress.  What you will notice immediately upon browsing is the noticeably faste...
