Plugin : Use Google Bookmarks instead of normal bookmarks on Google Chrome

With this post, we are starting a new section on chromestory.com, the plugin news tips and reviews section. You will see more plugin/extension/addon, whatever you call it, in coming days.

Last month or so, a visitor asked me how to use Google bookmarks on google chrome instead of regular bookmarks stored on the computer. There was nothing available that time, but now, we have a plugin that will add a  bookmarks option. When I found this plugin, I tried to find the visitor who asked me this question, so that I can email the link, and I couldn’t find it. So, this is for you, whoever asked for the plugin, sorry for not saving your email address.

Plugin Link :

Before you start installing it, a warning : Installing this plugin will remove all your existing bookmarks. So, its better to backups them before installing. I have left a note to the plugin developer, to add some kind of popup or notice before deleting bookmarks.

After you install the extension, you will get another “star” symbol, on the right hand side of your address bar, next to the go/stop/reload button. You should use that button instead of your regular bookmark icon, to add it to your google bookmarks. And yea, you should be logged in to your google accounts, to save them in to your google account.

This way, your bookmarks are saved on the cloud, yes, on your google account, and whenever you need it, wherever you need it, open them using google bookmarks on any browser, and when using your chrome browser, save them quick and fast, and in a single mouse click.

PS: Since this is the first plugin post, its not fully organized. I would love to hear from you, if you need some kind of format on plugin posts, what all info you need covered etc.

Leaked Photos of Google Chrome OS Netbook or Tablet Computer ?

chromebook  Leaked Photos of Google Chrome OS Netbook or Tablet Computer ?

google chrome os netbook leaked

We do not know how far this is true, news is spreading about the leaked images from Google’s Chrome OS, that’s being developed. Here is some info.

AUTHOR AGREED THAT THEY WERE FAKE PICTURES

The OS installation was performed on a Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop to show it can install quickly on laptops from late 2007 to early 2008. The install from Vista to Google Chrome OS Dev Beta was only 10 minutes and was very elegant. Only one restart required.

A wizard asks you for basic info on the first boot up. Google was still in progress of developing the wizard so we just skipped most of this. Google at the moment installed only the Google Talk application. They did this because the Rep said “At the current time, Google has not completed compatibility tests with some laptops and netbooks.”.

This beta was extremely stripped down. However, it was amazingly fast. They did one reboot and it rebooted from Desktop to Desktop in about 25ish seconds.

There is a button on the Chrome Bar (At least that is what the Rep called it.) that is basically the blue center of the chrome logo. This button pulls up a Start Menu clone essentially. The Reboot, Programs, and Main Directory is located here.

Google Chrome OS powered netbooks, the future ?

We were busy porting android to netbooks, thinking Google will develop their mobile OS android, in to a normal operating system, working on netbooks, laptops and even desktops. Now, the news it out that its not the android OS, but the Google Chrome OS. For many, its only a name change. Everything else remains the same, Google is building an operating system, that’s the big news. But how big is this news ?

Microsoft, this is big news for you

Yes, not in the good way, but still this is a big news for you people. Microsoft found themselves lucky when there were reports of people returning Linux based netbooks, and windows XP doing better in netbook market. Busy working on windows 7, making it light enough for netbooks, here comes the shocking news, Google Chrome OS.

Linux may not be popular among non geeks,  but Google sure is, and that’s what worries MS. ( if they are worried at all .. I mean, its not easy to break Microsoft’s market share, something that they earned over many years ). If google chrome OS is going to use Google Docs, Google Reader, Google Search, Google Talk ( With video chat ), and many others google products, people will not have tough time switching to the new OS. Because, they are familiar with all these things, and  if Google integrates them in such a way that they work seamlessly online and offline, that’ll be a big thing and people will fall for it.

So, Google Chrome is something bigger than Linux and ubuntu to worry about sir.

Netbook prices will go down, and the demand, up

Simple economics, when the price is lower, demand will go up. Netbooks minus the cost for XP = more demand for them, replace XP with Google Chrome with Google Chrome OS, then you get a low cost idea for a Netbook. What if Google subsidizes netbooks with their operating system ? Hmm, that’s a point …

Acer is a company that does much better on the price factor than any other laptop/netbook making company. There are many companies looking for a chance to reduce the price, and get rid of XP from their netbooks. Intel’s moblin OS was such an effort. So, this is very much possible.

There are much more possible, with Google Chrome OS is out. What you think will be it’s future ? Share here …

Now, there is a twist in the story : Google Chrome is an OS !

I am passionate about Google Chrome, and that’s why I started this blog. I was very much passionate about Google Android, because I thought it will become an operating system for netbooks and laptops very soon. I used to imagine how it will be, when Google releases an operating system.

Now, the story of Google Chrome has a twist. It’s going to become an operating system. It’s not Android that will see being developed as an OS for netbooks and laptops, but that’s ok, we will  still get an operating system from Google.

What is Google Chrome OS

I know that you have already read enough about google chrome operating system from various sources. Still, this post won’t be complete without mentioning what it is.

Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we’re already talking to partners about the project, and we’ll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.

That’s from the Official Google Blog.

Vow, it’s linux based, and I am linux fan too, okay, so I love linux, I love chrome, and I love the fact that google is building an operating system .. all this love with be expressed through chromestory.com in coming days. You will see news, and updates about the new OS, yes, chromestory.com is not just about the browser anymore …. it will be about the new operating system, news tips, and whole lot of information. And the forum ? It will be developed as Google OS Help Forum.

The Door of secrets is open … it’s time to explore more !!

Hi, from Google Chrome, I’m on Windows 7 !!

Hi friends ! this is your buddy google chrome speaking. I wanted to tell you about this small trip that I am taking to Windows 7, a new operating system from Microsoft. I feel proud when I see my name listed on the all new taskbar of windows 7, along with media player and IE 8.

I reached here fine, and the journey was smooth and fast. I was expecting some issues landing here, since I am not so used to this enviornment. But, things went well, download, installation and setup, all worked fine. Infact, I am writing this note to you all from my place in this windows 7 island ! It’s so beautiful around here, really.

I had to change my looks a bit, you know.. you may not recognize me at first sight, if you come here for now… I don’t have that blueish look that I used to have when I was on Windows XP. I have changed my looks according to the theme here, you see I must look a native, as long as I am here right ? But if you guys prefer my blueish looks, you can definitely do that when themes are officially announced.

Even Though this is a 64 bit capable laptop, it’s using 32bit windows 7 on here. It s not making any difference, but I just wanted to note that, for the record.  Anyway, this windows 7 thing is beta, right ?

Did anyone else try google chrome on windows 7 ? Did you find any error message ? Need help ? please drop me comments, and help questions are welcome on our new forum
