Chrome custom tabs has been slower than molasses for me. Ugh. Please give users a choice of how they want to open the link +Luke Wroblewski​. Also, you can't share to other networks or even the built in Android share menu with custom tabs. What an oversight.
 
G+ Android Update 7.2.0
Today we're starting to roll out our third Google+ Android app update of the year. This release has several bug fixes and three new features. Specifically:

* 29 bugs fixed
* 10 accessibility issues addressed
* Faster and safer browsing of Web sites (info below)
* Search history and autocomplete
* Tap on the bottom bar to scroll to the top of Collections, Communities, and Notifications

When you tap on a Web link on Google+ we now use Chrome custom tabs to pre-load Web sites, which makes viewing content much quicker. If you are signed in to a Web site in Chrome, you will also be signed in when you visit the same site in Google+. Other features like saved passwords, autofill, and Tap to Search are also available in custom tabs (http://blog.chromium.org/2015/09/chrome-custom-tabs-smooth-transition_2.html) .

While there’s lots of great reasons to use Chrome custom tabs in Google+, we’ve given you a simple way to turn them off as well. Just un-check "Enable Custom Tabs” in the Google+ Settings menu.

As always more updates are on the way so please keep the ideas & issues coming by using our Send Feedback menu item. Thanks~

Every time you type in a query in Firefox’s Awesome Bar, the autosuggest feature shows you a list of matches from various locations such as your browsing history, bookmarks, and currently open tabs. Here’s a simple way to refine those search results: use a search modifier. Let’s say you want to search for links related to…

World gone mad
 
People lose their minds over the wrong things. A city getting poisoned by it's own government and barely a notice. A football player doesn't feel like talking and that shit is on every other tv and radio station.

This probably fits the priorities of many main stream viewers. Namely they could care less about poisoning a city if it's not their water supply but will go ape shit over the superbowl.

Your Ultimate Library/Study/Den/Office/Man,Lady Cave/Theater/Bar/Sports Bar

The video tour at the end is inspiring, and your mind will wander...

There's no denying that Jay Walker has one of the most incredible private libraries on the planet. Heck, the whole house was built around it. The question is: what would your space look like? What would be your "must-have's" for your own Jay Walker-esque room(s)?

I always imagined mine as having a #steampunk  meets the future feel to it, with a nod to Gothic times. I like the look of this space, but it would have to be much more visual for me. Monitors, TVs, a theater room attached, maybe as a subterranean basement. I'd want secret passages throughout, leading to other anti-chambers. Add in a planetarium, and archaeology artifacts rooms, and I'm smiling.

I'd want a hidden speakeasy, completely done on 1920s style, and a deeply hidden wine cellar. I'd want nods to sci-fi and Star Wars, and Indiana Jones and I'd want it to truly be a place for one or a hundred people would feel the most relaxed they've ever been. So it would, of course, need plenty of plush seating (like you see in Barnes & Noble stores), plenty of open tables for discussion, and it would have to be the most technologically wired room on the planet, with unheard of download and upload speeds. That's my dream room.

What's yours? Be specific. Think about it for a bit, and carve out your dream for us!

Justice Department sues Ferguson over civil rights violations

The U.S. Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against the city of Ferguson alleging the police department and court system engage in a pattern of violating the constitutional rights of residents. The suit comes a day after city officials approved a revised agreement it had negotiated with federal officials.

Honey Badger don't care 
I had completely forgotten about my Pottermore account until I heard that the script for the upcoming play will be released soon. 

As it happens I registered on the original Pottermore and didn't realize they had changed it and I had to go through the whole sorting process again. 
Hufflepuffs value hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play. The house has produced its share of great wizards – not least Newt Scamander, author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

"I think you mustn't tell your body, you mustn't tell your soul, 'I'm going to retire,'" Dee told The Associated Press in 2001. "You may be changing your life emphasis, but there's still things that you have in mind to do that now seems the right time to do. I really don't believe in retiring as long as you can breathe."
