HOT : Download Web App for Chrome !
I am obsessed with blogging. I spend most of my day online browsing, tweeting and Blogging. I use Chrome and Chromium 100% of the time. ( of course I have a regular job too, blogging is just my hobby, but I take it a bit seriously;) )

What is Google Chrome : The Browser and OS

Google chrome was announced initially as a browser, a fast, and elegant browser. Later, Google revealed their plans for developing a complete operating system named Google Chrome, for netbooks initially, and then for laptops and desktops. It will be based on the Linux kernal. will serve as your source for everything about Google Chrome browser and the OS … you can expect news, reviews, features, help articles, tutorials and much more …

My Chromebooks

The first Chromebook I owned was a used Cr48. I posted a lot more about Chromebooks after I got this one. Later I upgraded to a Series 5 550 3G, mostly because I wanted to preserve my Cr48 in working condition :)

    You should post about dragging tabs side by side. I haven’t seen that in any browser before and it’s really useful. [via

    And post about some bookmarklets because it seems Chrome is flirting with this bookmarklets.

    This is what I have

    “Rename this tab…”
    javascript:(function() {document.title=prompt(“Enter Page Title”,document.title);})();

    “Email this page…”

    To change the MailTo client to GMail in Windows XP, (this opens a Chrome app window)
    I opened up explorer
    From the menu select Tools> Options> File Types
    Locate URL:MailTo Protocol
    Click Advanced
    With the ‘open’ action selected, click edit
    Paste this action.
    “C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –app=

    I don’t know how much weight you have on the Chrome developers but I think there should be an optional AutoFill buton like the Home button and open my history even when I’m not connected to the Internet.

    And I agree with about everything on this suggestion page.

      thanks for sharing. I will look in to this :)

      «“Rename this tab…”
      javascript:(function() {document.title=prompt(“Enter Page Title”,document.title);})();»

      It doesn’t work. Even this way:
      javascript:document.title=prompt(“Enter Page Title”,document.title);

    As mentioned on twitter.
    I have a problem when trying to use Friendfeed on Chrome.Chrome freezes when I click on a link and whilst this briefly happened with Twitter when I first installed Chrome,it has not happened with anything else.If you have any ideas about how to iron this out i would appreciate it.By the way technically I am on the novice side when it comes to software. :) Thanks for any help you may be able to give.

    • chrome story

      usually, restarting should fix these kind of issues … hmm since it’s still being developed, the best thing would be report a bug .. which you did :) I will wait for more from you.

  • Vikas

    A full blog and forum on Chrome, ahem! Subscribed to your feeds. All the best.

    • chrome story

      Thank you !!

  • Loclynn

    Would love to see you bring us more in depth news on Chrome OS such as a better how to resource for Chrome os features. the help forum is cool, but you are very good at telling the chrome story. so within your help page it would be cool to get striate to (howto’s ) on doc’s calenders, earth, 3-D sketch up library excreta. Google has so many things going but seeing it as a cloud OS is sometimes lost in all the excitement.

    • chrome story

      hey ! thanks for the tip ! will keep working hard to bring you the best here !

      and about the forum ..

      I am not getting enough time to manage it :( if few people among you can jump in and engage with the community, it will be fun !

    I’ve successfully added web apps to my canary build of google chrome, but aside from the large icons, there is no difference between the apps and the websites they link to. There is still an omni bar and the tab background looks the same (not the short one that I see in all the pictures). What’s the deal??

    • chrome story

      there is some more things being developed … but, most of them will be like a normal website,

      differences may be, it can be purchased, can have subscriptions etc, and soon, at least on the chrome os, it can access native hardware to increase performance etc ..

      • dberm22

        Right…but I still have the Omni-bar, and the tabs look the same. Have you tried this on canary?

  • Joshua Santos

    I love your blog, keep up the great work!

  • chrome story

    Hi Dinu :)

    Here’a the Wayanad info you asked for!
    We stayed at the Government Guest house at Sultan Bathery, Wayanad. Ph: 04936220225

    It’s a sprawling bungalow, with palatial rooms, palatial gardens and a very friendly staff! They made sure we were comfortable, served us the yummiest of food and didn’t even shush us while we were singing away at full throttle close to midnight. 😀 😀 We stayed in those huge rooms for just Rs 250/- per room!

    Check out the post here…for some pics of the Guest House.

    Have a FAB time at Wayanad! :)

    Best regards,

    • chrome story

      thanks a tonne !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Vector

    Thanks for the interesting blog! 😉

    I wanted to give you some advice for imporvement:

    1. Please adhere punctuation rules when you write something. Punctuation symbols like “!”, “?”, “:”, “,” should always go immediately after the word. They should not be divided by a space. For example:
    «Lorem ipsum !» — incorrect, «Lorem ipsum!» — correct;
    «Lorem , ipsum ,» — incorrect, «Lorem, ipsum,» — correct;
    «Lorem ( ipsum )» — incorrect, «Lorem (ipsum)» — correct;
    «Lorem ipsum ?» — incorrect, «Lorem ipsum?» — correct;

    If you think that’s not important — you are wrong.

    2. Pleas use more readable fonts for timestamps of your blog posts. Now you use the Lobster face as I understood. In combination with upper case, light gray color and small size it becomes absolutely unreadable.

    Thanks. Hope you’ll understand me right… :)

    • chrome story

      thanks a lot! changing the font now 😀

      • Vector

        Oh, yes! I see it now! :)

  • eli

    on the canary version of chrome, u can move around the app icons in the new tab page

    • chrome story

      yep :) its there in the dev version too 😀

  • kurtextrem

    In Chrome Canary Build, there is a new about:flags entry. I think this is the mode, which Google used on the All about Chrome Keynote!
    “Compact Navigation
    Adds a “Hide the toolbar” entry to the tabstrip’s context menu. Use this to toggle between always displaying the toolbar (default) and only opening it as a drop down box as needed.”

    I like it!

    • kurtextrem

      2 Updates:
      Chrome Dev Channel is now on 13.x but no entry for changelog is done on
      and in about:flags there is a new entry: “Web-Audio
      Enables the Web-Audio-API”

      • Dinu

        thanks !I saw that update .. will watch it closely :)
