Google is trying to help you bring your whole computing life in to a bunch of browser tabs with Chrome and Chrome OS. Even though heavy computing on tabs is not here yet, they have successfully ported some of the useful stuff to tabs, like your settings and bookmarks. Now, the latest addition is the task manager UI.
Latest version of Chromium has this feature available ( with a command line switch for now ) and we will soon see this in the browser and the OS. You will visitÂ chrome://taskmanager to view this new task manager.
Update: A recent update has changed this toÂ chrome://tasks
A task manager for all the open tabs in a browser was a novelty that Chrome brought in with it’s first version. Now, they have polished a little bit further to make it more sense in the browser scene.
Oh, speaking of the task manager,Â In Chrome’s Task Manager, right-click the column headers to see what per-page metrics you can monitor. Try it !
Google Talk Plugin – Now Replaces Gmail Chat Window
I noticed something different on my developer build of Chrome. I have this Google talk app, which currently works only in Chrome OS with fullÂ functionality, but I had it installed anyway. From today, when I hit chat on any contact from gmail, instead of Gmail’s native chat window, this app loads up in a panel like form ( but it behaving like pane though …)
stay tuned for more update on this !
