The Chromium team is working on browsing the web in VR with a Daydream View headset, and the first set of features is available to try out in Chrome 61. So far this allows users to view and interact with any website in VR, follow links between pages, and move between 2D and immersive viewing for sites that support WebVR.

Users can give this a try today by navigating to any site in Chrome and then simply putting the phone into their Daydream View headset.

This is just the beginning for web browsing in VR so stay tuned, there’s more to come!

The chromium team is currently thinking about showing only content settings that have been changed away from default in the Page Info bubble. This make it much easier to see which permissions you have granted specifically to a website.

Try in today in latest Canary 🐥. Note that you can always see all website permissions when you click "Site settings" button in the Page Info.

I really enjoy the "answer cards" in the new Chrome OS launcher these days: Press the Search key and google for anything that could be in the Knowledge Graph to see these useful cards: "dalai lama", "tintin", "dwight schrute", "walk off the earth", etc.

Chrome OS users can monitor in real-time their CPU usage, memory and zRam statistics thanks to the new internal page chrome://sys-internals in the latest Canary 🐥.

For that, enable the experimental chrome://flags/#sys-internals flag, restart Chrome, and enjoy watching real-time resource consumption.

This is the kind of nit I love! The cursor on top of the video is now hidden when native video controls fade out to give users a more immersive experience. Yes, this is exactly what do YouTube, Netflix, etc. already and this becomes the default behavior for all videos starting in latest Chrome Canary 🐥.

You can give this a try by watching some videos at www.webmfiles.org/demo-files/.

I work on Chrome Audio/Video 📺 these days and I love it! I get to learn new exciting things every day and this makes me happy.

Today I would be thrilled to get your crazy thoughts on what the Chrome team could do to make your media experience even more delightful. I'm thinking codec, VR, 360, live, HDR, PiP, autoplay, mute, bugs, nits, etc.

🔉 Please share in the comments your dreams, +1 the ones you like, and share this post. I'm looking forward to read them!

Material (re)Design for the download shelf is being added in the Chrome Canary 🐥 for Mac as we speak.

Enable the experimental chrome://flags/#mac-md-download-shelf flag, restart Chrome, and download some files from the Internet to enjoy this new shelf!

What an awesome news for tinkerers like me! Chrome internal UI can be inspected with DevTools the same way web developers do today with websites. My favorite way is to enable the flag chrome://flags/#enable-ui-devtools, restart Chrome, open chrome://inspect/#other, click the UiDevToolsClient "Inspect" link and I'm good to go!

I can navigate nodes, edit some of their attributes, play with how Chrome could* look like, and so on. Note that this feature is only supported in Chrome OS, Linux, and Windows for now.

Check out https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/dev/developers/how-tos/inspecting-ash to learn more about what you can do and what to expect in the future.

Renaming external USB flash drives in Chrome OS will soon be possible for everyone as the team is currently implementing that feature in Canary 🐥 behind the experimental flag chrome://flags/#enable-external-drive-rename.

Note that you can use the same <Ctrl> + <Enter> shortcut keys combination to rename folders and files and your USB drive now.

Quick question: How do you name your USB sticks?
