OMG! Chrome!

Just cos you use Google doesn't mean you have to Google

We shared this yesterday but it lacked a preview. Apologies for any deja vu 
Want to make DuckDuckGo the default search engine in Chrome or on your Chromebook? It's not obvious how to do it at first, but we're here to show you.

+Benjamin Gottfridsson  Options are bad, use the monopoly. Do not experiment, do not try new things. They are bad anyway.

Chrome for Windows XP To Be Supported a Little Longer

Microsoft stopped providing security updates to #WindowsXP  back in April 2014 — yet millions are still using it. To help offer those folks some protection, Google will continue to support Chrome until the end of the year. 
Google has announced that it is extending its support period for Chrome on Windows XP until the end of the year, 8 months more than originally intended.

Googles biggest surprise during its avalanche of new Chromebooks on Tuesday was this: the #Chromebit!

Don't just expect to see one though. Google has reportedly said more manufacturers may release their own Chromebits in the coming months, too!
 
Chromebit, anyone? 
Take the guts of a Chromebox and squeeze it in to a dongle not that much bigger than the Chromecast and you get the Chromebit.

Some great new features are coming to the Chrome OS beta channel very soon — and Google wants you to help test them.

Google Now cards will be integrated with the Chrome App Launcher, Google has said. It's one of several change heading to Chrome OS Beta channel this week.

Regularly available for $149, 304 months post introduction would be huge. Provided all the hardware elements, other than the processor of course, match the very good $199 (list $249?) Asus C200.

And no, I wouldn't be surprised to see it sold for $99 as a loss-leader on Black Friday.

Also, not sure why the preview doesn't appear. I may delete this post and re-share it.

Traffic to this post has gone insane since the feature rolled out to stable. 
 
Don't like Chrome's new Bookmarks Manager? Here's how to disable it and get the old version back.

We wrote this article last year when the feature hit Beta channel users. Now Chrome's new Bookmarks Manager has rolled out to pretty much everyone, Stable channel users will find it useful, too.  
The latest Chrome beta channel release is enrolling more users in Google's new 'enhanced bookmarking' feature, no extension required. But it's not pleasing everyone.

Another addition to the avalanche of Rockchip Chrome devices unveiled yesterday, this one from American computer company CTL.

Pitched at education, the j2 and j4 models feature the RK3288-C processor found in the Chromebit, Chromebook Flip, C201, etc inside a rugged casing designed to withstand classroom wear and tear. 

Pricing is cheap too.

It actually does. Most of my heavy lifting is done at home on my ubuntu desktop. When I am on the go, I need something super light. I also read a ton of PDFs. There were so many days when I kept wishing that my chromebook's screen could rotate in order to accomodate a PDF. My friend also had a Lenovo Yoga but I couldn't justify the price and I hate Windows 8. The size may not work for everyone but I think it may be just right for some.

Open the floodgates! ;) 
Any Android developers are now able to bring their their Android apps to Chrome OS, as Google expands the 'ARC' plugin project with documentation and tools.

If you use Google's Data Saver feature on Chrome for Android or iOS you'll love the search giant's latest Chrome Extension.

When installed and turned it squeezes webpages down by optimising images, javascript and other files so that pages load faster and help save on bandwidth.

Google's latest Chrome Extension is able to compress websites users visit before they're loaded in Chrome, helping speed things up and save on bandwidth.

Google's Chrome App Builder makes web apps a cinch to create.

While aimed more at kiosk web apps, Chrome App Builder makes it easy to create web apps for your desktop too.
A new 'by Google' Chrome app has surfaced in the Chrome Web Store. Its job: to let users make a Chrome app from a website easy as pie.
