Latest Dev Update features a new "Report abuse" checkbox in the extensions removal dialog so that you can tell to the Chrome Team why you uninstalled this extension.

Clicking on the "Remove" button when the checkbox is checked will actually open a new tab to the "Report Abuse" Chrome Web Store item page.

Dear developer, enjoy this geeky news! The Programmer Dvorak Keyboard Layout is now available in the latest Dev Update of Chrome OS.

Go to chrome://settings/languages, choose "English" language and check "Programmer Dvorak keyboard" to get started.

"Aw, Snap!" and "He's dead, Jim" tabs are getting a minor redesign in the latest chromium build to make the layout more consistent with the other set of Error Interstitials such as SSL and Malware.

An easy way to see them is to open a new tab to chrome://kill and chrome://crash. You'll notice that icons are now identical - no funny kill-tab icon anymore: https://codereview.chromium.org/1129513002/diff/100001/chrome/app/theme/default_100_percent/common/killtab.png

Chrome throbber animation is being materialized in Dev Channel to bring a nice and consistent look to UI.

You can access it directly by going to chrome://resources/images/throbber.svg. For info, this icon is shown in many places: tab loading spinner, history, clear browsing data, print preview, etc.

Latest Chrome OS Dev Update exposes both received signal strength and transmitted power level for Bluetooth devices during discovery when using the Chrome bluetooth¹ API.

Hopefully developers will use these brand new fields when it comes to rank devices by proximity for instance.

The fileSystemProvider API, used to create file systems that can be accessed from the Files App in Chrome OS, keeps getting better in the latest Dev Update. 

For instance, developers have now the ability to set "multiple_mounts" so that the Files App will allow you to add more than one mount points with the "Add new services" button. Basically, that means opening an app directly from there, instead of launching manually. 

Moreover, if developer specifies "configurable", then a menu item for configuring mount points will be rendered in the Files app.

Make sure you read the updated developer documentation¹ if you're planning to add these features to your Chrome App. I will as you can see² below ;)

+Richard Tan if your NAS drive supports SFTP, then you can use https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/sftp-file-system/ to connect, that works well for me.

The chromium team has just landed the majority of the remaining Chrome for Android code (over 100K lines of code) into the open-source Chromium repository: Chrome for Android is now almost entirely open-source

External Developers can now build a full-fledged Chromium browser by building the brand new chrome_public_apk target.

Check out this page to learn more about the differences between Chromium and Chrome: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/wiki/ChromiumBrowserVsGoogleChrome

The chromium team is rethinking¹ the extensions toolbar UX. A nice placeholder icon is now shown in the toolbar for extensions that don't have an icon so that they don't look like puzzle pieces anymore.

You can see this in Chrome Canary by simply enabling the experimental flag named "Extension toolbar redesign" at chrome://flags/#enable-extension-action-redesign and load any chrome browserAction² Extension with no icon such as the Page Redder Sample Extension³ for instance.

+François Beaufort The Camera and Files icons look so similar. One time, I opened the Camera app thinking it was the Files app, no kidding. At least change the color of the background circle.

How time flies! Chromium hit version 45 and as usual, here are some miscellaneous facts about this triangular number from Wikipedia:

- 45 = 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9
- In years of marriage, 45 is the sapphire wedding anniversary
- Forty-Fives is a trick-taking card game that originated in Ireland. 
- A type of gramophone record classified by its rotational speed of 45 revolutions per minute (rpm)
- 45 is a Kaprekar number, because 45² = 2025 and 20+25 = 45.

+Mike McLoughlin I believe this is due to the fact you use Freon (https://plus.google.com/+FrancoisBeaufort/posts/L3zmATV8BW5) you can see this new screen.
