Chrome custom tabs: smoothing the transition between apps and the web

Android app developers face a difficult tradeoff when it comes to showing web content in their Android app. Opening links in the browser is familiar for users and easy to implement, but results in a heavy-weight transition between the app and the web.

You can get more granular control by building a custom browsing experience on top of Android’s WebView, but at the cost of more technical complexity and an unfamiliar browsing experience for users. A new feature in the most recent version of Chrome called custom tabs addresses this tradeoff by allowing an app to customize how Chrome looks and feels, making the transition from app to web content fast and seamless. Learn more in our latest blog post.

Why do they have to require an always on connection for these phone games? I want to play during my subway commute 😥

Ah well, the 3DS version is unburdened by such silliness, at least.

Wait, wait, wait. Let me get this straight - Jeff Bezos was dying to create a phone. Jeff Bezos got involved in creating the phone. Jeff Bezos had an event to announce this useless thing. Jeff Bezos tried to sell it for $700. Jeff Bezos then cut the price in half after few months, then eventually sold it for $80 with Prime membership. And after 13 months, Jeff Bezos knew it failed. So, Jeff Bezos fires the people who helped Jeff Bezos achieve Jeff Bezos' mobile failure, even though Jeff Bezos was told it will fail even before the project was started.

Jeff Bezos for president!
A smart stylus, a portable projector, and a 14-inch tablet have all reportedly been shelved.

Used the Firefly few times. Camera can be used with one hand while phone is locked. Pictures are quite good. email client reminds me of BBRY. I got 3 phones for just over $300 effectively after factoring in the 3 years of prime I got. Our son already shattered one, but it still works. No need to fix the $70 phone. Just throw it away.

So my friend got the Note 5 last night. 

Friend: This phone is so beautiful...
Me: Yeah, just don't shove that SPen the wrong way ;-)
Friend: Psh. I saw that stupid +Android Police video. Who does that? It's so stupid, making a big fuzz over stupidity.
Me: Well, a lot of people might accidentally shove it the wrong way. It's a design flaw. Samsung knew about it, but did nothing about it.
Friend: What design flaw? It's a perfect phone.
Me: Aren't you the same person who laughed at the iPhone bendgate issue, and called out Apple on their design mistake?
Friend: Yeah. That's a major design flaw.
Me: But shoving the SPen the wrong way isn't? 
Friend: Of course not. This phone is perfect the way it is.
Me: Okay. Shove the SPen the wrong way, let's see how perfect the phone really is :-)
Friend: .....
Me: Let's grab a burger? Yeah? Cool.

The moral of the story: Don't be a blind fanboy

+Eli Fennell +Abhilash Bingi +Alexander Gries +Nikhil M You know what's funny? Note 4 had extra plastic at the tip of the SPen, so it wouldn't slide into the phone and break it. But with the Note 5, even after writing a paragraph about it in the manual not to insert it the wrong way, Samsung went ahead with the design flaw. That tells me Samsung is either stupid or just... Stupid.

+Vinoth Ragunathan Yeah just started using it. Though I think it doesn't clean as much "junk" as was reported by Clean Master. Fake reports maybe? 

Though I think I'll just stick with CCleaner now. Use it on my PC as well, so why not on my phone? :)

This was one of the weirdest features of Chrome. Weird because it'll ask if it's OK to go full screen after going full screen... 😕😑
 
The chromium team is currently experimenting with a simplified fullscreen UI. Instead of having an annoying prompt to allow sites to go fullscreen, this new user experience will grant them automatically fullscreen access. A bubble will appear appropriately so that you're still able to exit full screen by clicking on it or pressing <Escape> key.

Give it a try now in Dev Channel or Canary by enabling the experimental flag named "Simplified fullscreen / mouse lock UI" at chrome://flags/#simplified-fullscreen-ui and let the chromium team know what you think of it.
For info, the design document is publicly available at
https://docs.google.com/document/d/10Hm6dstWEY9sOdbENijz70I6Tnbz91mPkNKeteMJ-Kw

Introduction
Hello, world. My name is Vinoth Ragunathan. I have been a designer, technology enthusiast, a dreamer and a code-tinker since I was 14. I've always been interested in that sweet spot of both simplicity and functionality. Both of them on their own aren't as exciting as when they meet together. Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

Definitely a place to visit once every 2-3yrs or so. Nothing special or mind-blowing about this place. The tour is every short and a bit boring, except the water tunnel (Dangerous Lagoon), that was probably the coolest part.
