  1. Google makes it easier to test experimental features in Chrome The company wants to collect more feedback on future updates. Thomas Trutschel via Getty Images It turns out increasing the cadence of Chrome updates isn’t the only change Google has planned for its web browser.

  2. Chrome extension turns on YouTube captions when eating noisy chips A new AI-powered Google Chrome extension will automatically turn on YouTube extensions if it detects you are eating noisy chips. I doubt few people have not experienced hearing a movie, TV show, or video while someone next to you is loudly eating chips. To make it easier to watch YouTube videos, creative agency Happiness Saigon partnered with Frito-Lay to create the 'Lay's Crispy Subtitles' browser extension that automatically enables YouTube captions when it detects
  3. Google speeds up its release cycle for Chrome Image Credits: Jaap Arriens/NurPhoto / Getty Images Google today announced that its Chrome browser is moving to a faster release cycle by shipping a new milestone every four weeks instead of the current six-week cycle (with a bi-weekly security patch). That’s one way to hasten the singularity, I guess, but it’s worth noting that Mozilla also moved to a four-week cycle for Firefox last year. “As we have improved our testing and release processes for Chrome, and deployed bi-weekly security updates to

  5. Tile Tabs WE makes it easier to display tabs side-by-side in Firefox and Chrome Remember Tile Tabs in Firefox? The classic extension for the browser added capabilities to it to display multiple sites in a single tab. Tile Tabs WE is the successor of the extension, and since it is based on WebExtensions, compatible with all recent versions of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. WebExtensions APIs don't provide options to display multiple sites in a tab, and that is the reason why Tile Tabs WE uses the next best thing, windows, for its operations. T
  6. Google Chrome's FPS meter shows frame rate again after complaints Google has brought the FPS (Frames Per Second), or frame rate, reading back to the Google Chrome FPS meter after users were upset about its removal.

Read pages in a distraction-free mode, print or save them with the Reader View extension for Firefox and Chrome Many modern browsers have a feature called reader view, that presents web pages in a distraction-free layout. So, if a page has a cluttered sidebar, annoying ads, or a lot of elements which take the focus away from the article, you can enable reader view to get a better experience.

Tip: check out my reviews of Tab Manager Plus, Search all Tabs, and

Third-party developers are able to customize Custom Tabs so they match the style of their app. One tweak allows them to add a button to the app bar, just left of the overflow menu.

  25. Google Chrome fixes antivirus 'file locking' bug on Windows 10 Google Chrome has fixed a bug that enabled antivirus programs on Windows 10 to lock newly created files.
