  1. Yes, I'm actually at the point of paying money to make Google Chrome more tolerable in terms of RAM usage and performance. And so far, it's working out well. I have a love/hate relationship with Google Chrome. On the one hand, I love it a lot. I love the broad ecosystem of extensions, and the compatibility across all the devices I use, regardless of operating system. It's less a browser and more a platform for all I do online. But I also hate it. It's a massive performance hog (and I'm an Adobe Creative Cloud user, so that's saying something). I
  2. How to hide the extension icon (jigsaw) in Google Chrome An extension icon that looks like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle is displayed when you have at least one extension installed in Google Chrome. Google added the icon to the Chrome browser as an experiment initially but has now made it a permanent addition to Chrome. Designed to improve the manageability of browser extensions, it is handy to hide and show individual extension icons, and to access other extension related functions such as opening the preferences of the add-on or removing it from Chrome.
  3. Facebook's API eliminates the trade-off between content loading at once or chunking up work. A Facebook application programming interface called isInputPending will be available in Chrome 87 and may help speed up content loading. The isInputPending API started as an origin trail in 2019 and after feedback Facebook updated. Now the API is available in the Chromium project. Facebook and Chrome engineers worked to move the API through the pipeline. Today, web sites are making a tradeoff between loading content as quickly as possible by doing the wo
  4. Homeland Security cybersecurity agency says update Google Chrome as attackers hone in on new security flaws. Within the space of just three short weeks, Google has patched no less than five potentially dangerous vulnerabilities in the Chrome web browser. These are not your common vulnerabilities either, but rather ones known as zero-days. A zero-day being a vulnerability that is being actively exploited by attackers while remaining unknown to the vendor or threat intelligence outfits. Once the vendor becomes aware of the security flaw, day zero,
  5. In mitigating the risk of the phishing attack variant, Google is following in the footsteps of Safari and Firefox An upcoming update to the Google Chrome browser will tackle the risks associated with reverse tabnabbing attacks. In a tweet dated November 9, Google developer Mike West wrote that Chrome version 88 and beyond would “match Safari and Firefox's behavior of treating target=_blank links as noopener by default”. Chrome 88 is due to be released as a stable build on January 19, 2021. On Chromium’s Gerrit collaboration pa
  6. NetMarketShare announced on Sunday plans to shut down its public browser share reporting tool, which has been available for more than 14 years. Net Applications, the owners of NetMarketShare, is widely known for being a provider of usage share statistics for web browsers and operating systems. According to Net Applications, the data provided by NetMarketShare is a primary source in "tens of thousands of articles and publication". NetMarketShare browser market report The NetMarketShare website is still active, but starting November 1
  7. Google today released Chrome 86.0.4240.183 for Windows, Mac, and Linux to address 10 security vulnerabilities including a remote code execution (RCE) zero-day exploited in the wild. The zero-day was reported by Clement Lecigne of Google's Threat Analysis Group and Samuel Groß of Google Project Zero on October 29, 2020. No details regarding in the wild attacks The RCE vulnerability is tracked as CVE-2020-16009 and it is described as an inappropriate implementation in V8, Google's open-source and C++ based high-performance WebAssembly and JavaScript engin
  8. Google Chrome will now block all offensive site popups Abusive notifications can be used to spread malware or steal user credentials (Image credit: Shutterstock) With the release of Chrome 86 earlier this month, Google is now automatically hiding popups on websites that display abusive notification content to visitors. The search giant first introduced its “quite notification permission UI” back in Chrome 80 and it was later improved upon in Chrome 84 when the company began automatically enrolling sites in its notificati
  9. Google is testing the addition of shopping advertisement cards on Chrome's new tab page Google is testing a way for the new tab page on Chrome to display shopping advertisement cards based on users’ search history and preference. The feature is currently hidden under a flag called ‘NTP Shopping Tasks Module’ (spotted by Techdows) in Chrome Canary which can be enabled from chrome://flags. The flag provides users the ability to even enable recommendations based on fake data for representational purposes. The shopping card
  10. Prosecutors for the Justice Department and state attorney general offices are discussing ways of curbing the search giant's market power as they prepare to sue the company. Justice Department and state prosecutors investigating Google for alleged antitrust violations are considering whether to force the company to sell its dominant Chrome browser and parts of its lucrative advertising business, three people with knowledge of the discussions said Friday. The conversations — amid preparations for an antitrust legal battle that DOJ is expected to begin
  11. Google Chrome 86 is out with password changing improvements and security patches Google released a new version of the company's Chrome web browser on September 6, 2020. The new stable version of the web browser is being rolled out gradually as usually. Desktop users who want the upgrade right away can run a manual check for the update by loading chrome://settings/help in the browser's address bar. Chrome should pick up the update and install it automatically; the version of the browser is revealed on the page as well. Chrome 86.0.4240.75 is
  12. Google Chrome Could Soon Stop Eating So Much Memory It’s not a secret that despite being the world’s number one desktop browser, Google Chrome is a major resource hog, eating up way too much memory regardless of the platform you run it on. But as it turns out, Google has heard all the criticism, so the company is now developing new ways to optimize resource usage in Chrome. As discovered by ChromeStory, the search giant is currently exploring an improvement called “Best Effort Tasks,” which essentially comes down to a new feature that would keep certain tasks on hold

  14. Brief: Here’s why Mozilla Firefox should be your choice in the effort to protect your privacy and in keeping the internet healthy and an open place. Browser choice is a very personal thing. I notice that people have a sort of, love towards the browser that they have been using for a long enough time. What I mean by “love” is that it is quite difficult to make someone change their default browser. Ask Microsoft, they have tried. Let’s say your favorite browser is Chrome. Now even if I tell you that some xyz browser consumes 30% less memory than your Chrome, I
  15. Google is introducing a small but important update to its Chrome browser, one designed to prevent consumers from being swindled by underhanded or unclear mobile subscription services Some web pages invite visitors to input their mobile phone number in order to subscribe to some kind of service, such as a mobile game, but it’s not always clear how much they will be charged or even if that they are being charged at all. This is enabled by a service known as carrier billing, something that allows users to bypass more laborious subscription methods by having a fee charged d
  16. Google Chrome is the most popular browser in the world. Chrome routinely leads the pack in features for security and usability, most recently helping to drive the adoption of HTTPS. But when it comes to privacy, specifically protecting users from tracking, most of its rivals leave it in the dust. Users are more aware of, and concerned about, the harms of pervasive tracking than ever before. So why is Chrome so far behind? It’s because Google still makes most of its money from tracker-driven, behaviorally-targeted ads. The marginal benefit of each additional bit of infor
  17. Google is working with Qualcomm to brings ARM capabilities to Chrome. Doing so would dent Microsoft Edge as the browser continues to battle Chrome’s dominance. Over the last year, Microsoft has been working with chip giant Qualcomm on Windows 10 on ARM. The idea is to make PCs more affordable by blending the best aspects of desktop computing and mobile tech. Now, Google is once again challenging Microsoft directly with its own ARM integration for Chrome desktops. Windows 10 on ARM has had mixed results so far, not least because Microsoft’s app is
  18. Google Chrome to Get Tab Grouping Feature One of the new features that Google is working on for Chrome browser is called tab grouping, and according to a new report, it’s already being tested in the Canary version of the app. Originally discovered last year, tab grouping would technically make it substantially easier to work with multiple links from the same page, all in the same screen. As the typical Google Chrome user keeps increasing the number of tabs they work with at the same, such improvements would certainly come in handy for tab management. As reported b
  19. Chrome to show warnings when accessing mistyped domains. The Google Chrome browser is set to add a feature that will warn users when accessing sites with domain names that look like authentic websites. The feature has been in the works for quite some time at Google and is a response to the practice of using typosquatted domains or IDN homograph attacks to lure users on websites they didn't intend to access. For example, crooks often register misspelled versions of popular domains, such as paypall.com, or they'd use domains with Unicode characters like
  20. Google Chrome Will Support Another Key Windows 10 Feature Microsoft is pushing hard for its Windows Mixed Reality platform, and the company could soon get some help to make this effort successful from none other than its long-time rival Google. Because as it turns out, the search giant is currently looking into adding support for the mixed reality platform to Google Chrome using the WebVR standard. This technically means that users will be able to browse the web with Google Chrome with a Windows Mixed Reality headset, though for the time being, such capabi
  21. Google Chrome Will Block Websites from Detecting Incognito Mode A future version of Google Chrome will block websites from side-stepping the existing implementation of the Incognito mode to determine whether users are browsing the web in private mode or not. The Incognito mode in Google Chrome improves user privacy when loading websites, making it harder for advertisers to track them and deliver relevant ads. And because Incognito has become such a popular way to prevent tracking, many advertisers turned to a simple trick that allowed them to determine whether this p
  22. How to Use Google Chrome to Link to Text on Page As I reported only a few days ago, one of the new features coming to Google Chrome users is support for links that point not to websites, but to the actual content on a specific page. At this point, this is technically possible if the link is created based on an anchor or an iframe, but with this new Google Chrome implementation, you’re allowed to create a link that would point users straight to a specific word on the page. While it might sound a little bit confusing at first, the whole idea behind this new feature is
  23. Google Chrome Is Finally Getting a Feature That All Big Browsers Already Have Google Chrome is currently the number one browser on both desktop and mobile, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s also the app with all the features one could get. In fact, Chrome has been missing several key features for a long time, and one of them is a reader mode that would make it easier to read articles and long texts on websites. If you’ve used Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari on a Mac before, you probably noticed they all come with a built-in rea
  24. Google Chrome to Copy Another Firefox and Microsoft Edge Feature While Microsoft has already surrendered in the browser world and decided to move Edge to the Chromium engine, it doesn’t mean that this application doesn’t come with advanced features that are worth copying. And by the looks of things, Google totally agrees with this, as the company is getting ready to borrow another idea from rival browsers. This time, it’s a reading mode that’s already available in Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and even Vivaldi, and Google apparently wants this feature to be part o
  25. Google Chrome to block automatic downloads initiated from ad slot iframes Google continues its crusade against "drive-by download" attack vectors. Google Google developers plan to add a feature to Chrome that will prevent advertising slots on a website from triggering automatic file downloads in users browsers. "We plan to prevent downloads initiated from ad frames that lack a user gesture to prevent unwanted drive-by-downloads," Google developers said
