Hi guys! Happy Saturday to you all! I am excited. I am going to buy a Chromecast (too late to the party!) and an HDMI to VGA converter to set it up with my PC monitor. I will update you all soon about how this goes!
This week’s list. I have started adding interesting Chrome commits that I noticed during the past week.
- Chromebook Sales Rose 32 Percent During ‘Back to School’ 2014: Strong Chromebook sales thanks to schools and colleges!
- This App Makes It Even Easier to Install Android Apps in Chrome: It’s really easy to port Android apps to Chrome OS now. Here is a new Android app that lets you convert installed apps or a locally stored APK.
- Introducing a Major New Update to the Pocket Chrome App: My favorite Android/Chrome app, has an update for Chrome. Looks and works better now!
- Samsung exits laptop market including Chromebooks: ??????????? ???????
- Chrome Apps for Mobile : Now with a faster dev workflow and a modern WebView: The developer workflow for Chrome Apps for Mobile is now significantly faster and simpler with the new live deploy feature. With live deploy, you can instantly preview the Chrome App you’re editing, running right on your Android or iOS device.
- Disable New Incognito Window command for guest profile: Chrome for desktop is also getting a “Guest Mode” like Chrome OS. This commit talks about removing the Incognito mode from the Guest Mode since both are the same thing. (Thanks to Craig Tumblison for clearing that one for me!)
- SRT Bubble: When Chrome finds malware on your PC, it will tell you about the new Software Removal Tool.
- Mute Your Tabs: Looks like we are getting a “mute this tab” option soon!
Now, here is a video for developers, some cool tricks using the Chrome developer tool.
