  1. Google has fixed 23 security vulnerabilities in Chrome, including three high-risk flaws, and handed out $9,500 in rewards to researchers. Among the vulnerabilities that the company fixed in Chrome 35 are use-after-free flaws and an integer overflow, all of which are rated high. Google didn’t disclose the details of all of the various security vulnerabilities, but of the eight that it listed in its advisory, those three are the most serious. The full list of vulnerabilities patched in Chrome 35 will be published later, but here are the ones that Google has published and received bug bounties: [
  2. With one of the largest eBook collections, Amazon is the place to shop for many paying readers. However, eBook pirates can now get their fix at the popular store too, via a new Chrome extension that places links to pirated copies into Amazon's pages. As one of the largest online retailers, Amazon is the go-to store for many people. Amazon became big by selling books and in recent years eBooks have become some of the fastest selling items. However, pirates are now directly targeting the company’s successful business model. With a new Chrome extension pirates are entering Amazon, effectively
  3. Google’s desktop Web browser has inched past Firefox in market share calculated for June 2014 by Net Applications. Chrome went from 17.7% in May to 19.3% last month. That said, Internet Explorer still reigns supreme according to this particular data set, hovering above its competitors with a whopping 58.3% market share in June. Chrome was up to 17.1% in June 2013, after which point it lost some market share, only to get it back and actually start making advances again this May. On the other hand, over the past year Firefox has pretty consistently managed to lose market share one mon
  4. A recent report shed light on a major bug in Google’s Chrome web browser that causes the batteries in Windows laptops to drain much faster than normal. In fact, the issue could cause laptop batteries to die 25% quicker. The bug causes laptops’ processors to wake up and look for tasks 1,000 times each second instead of 64 times per second, as they should, and users have been advised to avoid using Chrome on Windows machines if they value battery life. But help is on the way: A new report states that Google has acknowledged the issue and is currently working to fix it. A report on Thursda
  5. Google's Chrome browser has started to block downloads of the popular BitTorrent client uTorrent. Those who attempt to download the software are told that it's malicious and harmful, hinting that the website might have been hacked. With millions of new downloads per month uTorrent is without a doubt the most used BitTorrent client around. However, since this weekend the number of installs must have dropped quite a bit after Google Chrome began warning users away from the software. According to Chrome the BitTorrent client poses a serious risk. “uTorrent.exe is malicious and Chrome has block
  6. Just imagine, you are sitting in front of your laptop and your laptop is listening to your nearby conversations. What if the recorded audio from the system’s microphone is being instantly uploaded to a malicious website? Google has created a speech-recognition Application Programming Interface (API) that allows websites to interact with Google Chrome and the computer’s microphone allows you to speak instead of typing into any text box, to make hands-free web searches, quick conversions, and audio translator also work with them. In January, a flaw was discovered in Google Chrome that enabled m
  7. By Ron Amadeo - Jan 18 2014, 10:10am AUSEST Once in control, they can silently push new ad-filled "updates" to those users. One of the coolest things about Chrome is the silent, automatic updates that always ensure that users are always running the latest version. While Chrome itself is updated automatically by Google, that update process also includes Chrome's extensions, which are updated by the extension owners. This means that it's up to the user to decide if the owner of an extension is trustworthy or not, since you are basically giving them permission to push new code out to your browse
  8. By Casey Johnston - Jan 28 2014, 7:00am AUSEST Updates turned some Chrome add-ons maliciousnot all browsers allow that. Customers complain about activity tracking in CRXMouse on Chrome, a particularly invasive add-on. In a recent revelation by OMG Chrome and the developer of the Chrome extension Add to Feedly, it came to light that Chrome extensions are capable of changing service or ownership under a users nose without much notification. In the case of Add to Feedly, a buyout meant thousands of users were suddenly subjected to injected adware and redirected links. Chromes regulations fo
  9. By exploiting bugs in Google Chrome, malicious sites can activate your microphone, and listen in on anything said around your computer, even after you’ve left those sites. Even while not using your computer - conversations, meetings and phone calls next to your computer may be recorded and compromised. While we’ve all grown accustomed to chatting with Siri, talking to our cars, and soon maybe even asking our glasses for directions, talking to our computers still feels weird. But now, Google is putting their full weight behind changing this. There’s no clearer evidence to this, than visiting G
  10. Google has removed two Chrome extensions from its store due to the way they were serving ads to users. The extensions in question, Add to Feedly and Tweet This Page, both started life as useful additions to Google's web browser, but were soon serving users pop-ups and other intrusive ads. The reason for the sudden change in behavior? In Add to Feedly's case, at least, it was purchased from its developer and quickly began serving ads to its 30,000 users. In a blog post, Add to Feedly developer Amit Agarwal describes how he got an email presenting "a four-figure offer for something that had ta
  11. A few months back, Google had released an extension for Chrome that would allow you to use search simply by using your voice and saying the phrase “Ok Google”. Now, that functionality is being built-in to the browser and is available first through the new beta. If you install or update to the latest Chrome beta, you will be able to do a voice search from the Google homepage or from the new tab page. You can use it the same way you’d use it on your Android phone, by starting with “Okay Google” and then saying your query. You can also use it to set a timer or a reminder. You will just h
  12. By Sanjeev Radhakrishnan Friday, January 17, 2014 Cross-platform app development is more important than ever. 10 years ago, you just whipped out your Visual Studio when you needed a client application, but not anymore. With “app-ification” going mainstream on Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac, what is a developer to do? Web apps are a good solution some of the time (except for that little detail called IE!). But what about when you need the features and performance of native code, across platforms? And you’re a startup with a small team and impossible deadlines? Well, at MobileSpan we’ve been
  13. Google will release an update to the mobile version of Chrome, which promises to decrease data usage while browsing by as much as 50%. Google announced the upcoming changes to its browser Wednesday in a blog post, saying, "Chromes data compression and bandwidth management can reduce data usage by up to 50% while browsing the web on Chrome for Android and iOS." To reduce data usage, users must enable the data-savings option in Chrome's "settings" menu. After enabling this setting, users will also be able to track the amount of data they're saving each month. This update, set to roll out over
  14. By Tom Warren on January 14, 2014 05:53 pm Google started dropping hints about its Chrome OS-like plans for Windows 8 back in October. At the time it was merely an experiment in the developer version of Chrome, but today Google is rolling out a new user interface to all Chrome Windows users alongside a noisy tabs tracking feature. The new "Metro" mode essentially converts Chrome for Windows 8 into Chrome OS. Just like Google's full Chrome OS, you can create multiple browser windows and arrange them using a snap to the left or right of the display or full-screen modes. There's even a shelf with

    Chrome 32 v Windows

    By Paul Thurrott Jan. 15, 2014 Google extends the middle finger towards Redmond, again The latest update to Google's web browser, called Chrome 32, adds a number of useful new features and changes, such as the ability to mute individual tabs (perfect for annoying web sites). But Windows users are going to notice two more dramatic changes, neither of which are very welcome. Google describes some of the changes in Chrome 32 in a blog post. But the big changes for Windows users are sort of glossed over or at least deemphasized. The first of the two Windows-based changes applies only to Windows
  16. Prashant Prabhu On 7th February, 2014 Tired of animated GIF images that take forever to load? Check out these Firefox addons, which make the wait bearable. Or, if you’ve spotted a video that could be the next viral GIF on the Web, read on for an addon that lets you convert HTML5 videos to GIFs. We’ve got alternatives for Google Chrome, too GIF Delayer A GIF that hasn’t finished downloading often starts from the beginning and keeps playing in loop. GIF Delayer helps you avoid these headache-inducing short loops by hiding the image until it has been downloaded completely. Once you install
  17. There are a number of different ways to do this, but when you get down to it all they all do the same thing, which is change your IP address so it looks like you’re in another country. Some use proxy servers, others use VPNs, and there are hundreds of different options in each category. But arguably the easiest way to unblock movies on Netflix and take a peek at what’s available in other regions is to install a browser extension called Hola. Here’s a quick rundown of how to do it: Download and install Hola for your browser of choice and complete the free sign up process if you’re prompted to.

    [Infographic] Browser Wars

    According to New Relic’s data, which analyzed more than 16.8 million page loads from early October through early November last year, BlackBerry 10 devices loaded web pages in 1.55 seconds on average. The second-fastest web browser, Opera Mini 4.2, wasn’t even close, with page load times that averaged 4.78 seconds. In other words, the BlackBerry 10 browser is more than three times faster than its next-closest competitor. Apple’s Safari browser on the iPad came in at No. 3 with an average page load time of 4.91 seconds, and no other native web browser was even included in New Relic’s top-9 r

  20. Google is changing the way its browser handles PDF files, starting with the Chrome Canary channel. Citing security concerns, the company wants Chrome to open PDF files by default, bypassing any third-party programs such as Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader. The modification was first noted by developer and Google open-source Chromium evangelist François Beaufort. He points to a Chromium code review that argues browsers, rather than PDF applications, should handle the opening of such documents. Google’s argument is worth quoting in full: PDFs in particular are safer to open in the browser. This pat
  21. Hi all: I realized I have different versions of Chrome on my work's laptop and PC, at home. In laptop I have 32.0.1700.41 m Aura but at home is 31.0.1650.63 m. If I go to About Google Chrome it looks for new version but says it its up to date. I downloaded Chrome from official page but it installs 31.0.1650.63 m again. Really don't know why in the laptop the version is newest when I didn't configure any special in Chrome. Thanks

  23. Google on Tuesday updated Chrome to version 30, patching 50 vulnerabilities and paying outsider researchers $27,000 in bounties along the way. The Mountain View, Calif. company highlighted only one change in the newest desktop Chrome: Image search. "Starting this week, all Chrome users will be able to search by image," said Kibeom Kim, a Chrome engineer, in a short post to a company blog. By right-clicking an image displayed in Chrome, then selecting "Search Google for this image," the browser will show other image results culled from Google's search engine. Google typically calls out only som

  25. Google’s Chromium team never ceases to amaze. Its latest project is a Chrome app-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) codenamed Spark. The new app was first noted by developer and Google open-source Chromium evangelist François Beaufort. Here are his observations for the new IDE project: It is built with Dart, the “new language for scalable web app engineering”.It contains a GUI widgets library powered by PolymerIt’s public on GitHub and therefore interesting for anyone who wants to know how Dart and Polymer can be used to build the next generation of Chrome Apps.
