Late-nite poll: Is no Flash on Chrome a non-starter?
Wednesday 08th of February 2012
So we've finally got a Chrome browser on Android. Huzzah. But it's missing Adobe Flash support. Uh, not huzzah. That is, for some. While Flash is going the way of the dinosaur -- an extremely slow-moving, refuses-to-die dinosaur -- being phased out it is. And for that reason, says Adobe, the new Chrome browser for Android doesn't support it.(And let's face it -- while Flash may have an expiration date, nobody actually knows what it is.)So is that a deal-breaker for you? Will you stick with the (current) stock Android browser, or a third-party browser, to get you through the interim?Is a lack of Flash on the Chrome mobile browser a deal-breaker?
Chrome Browser hits Android without Adobe Flash support, it isn't coming Either
Tuesday 07th of February 2012
Many of you lucky kids that either have official build of Ice Cream Sandwich or one of the various ROMs floating around built on it, have already picked up the Chrome beta web browser. Judging from comments on other sites, twitter and G+, people are really loving it. One thing is missing though, Flash support. you can complain all you want, but Flash support just won’t be making its way to the new fancy browser anytime soon. Android was lucky enough to get an update to Flash after the launch of ICS and they have no plans to do any work for the new browser from Google. Adobe suggests that if you need Flash content then you should open the page up in the default browser or another browser that has support.Adobe will continue to move forward with Google with HTML5 and other members of the Web community. So it isn’t a total lost cause, they are moving forward, just in new directions that won’t necessarily require a separate app install in order to function well.Were any of you surprised to hear this news?Via Adobe
Google Chrome browser will soon be available on Android
Monday 03rd of October 2011
One of the biggest mysteries of Android is why the popular Chrome browser isn’t available on Android and mobile phones- We still don’t know the answer to that question, but we could soon see the popular desktop browser make its way to the Android platform.It looks like an Android-friendly version of Chrome is in the works, and could be available soon. The information was revealed in documents on the Chromium website. The documents includes changelogs and comments by Googlers who are working on the project.Maybe Chrome for Android will be one of the new fe…Continue Reading HereGoogle Chrome browser will soon be available on AndroidJonathan Radande – droidmatters.com
JAM with Chrome music web app makes its debut on Chrome browser
Friday 09th of November 2012
Skype, Gtalk, and other new means that bring people virtually closer together pretty much dispel the myth that a long-distance relationship simply can’t work. But we’re not here to start a counseling session, rather to talk about a new experiment — with a similar concept — that Google has introduced for budding musicians, JAM with Chrome.JAM with Chrome is a new web application that lets you and your friends (all three of them) play music together on Chrome browser. Since the jam session is done in real-time, make sure you have a good Internet connection if you don’t want to mess a song up and get kicked out of the band.There are 19 different music instruments that you can choose to play, such as acoustic guitars, drum kits, keyboard, and more. It’s probably best to stick with the “easy mode” and its very helpful autoplay functions if you’re just starting, while the pro can choose the … “pro mode”.Check out the embedded video above on how Jam with Chrome works. If your friends aren’t interested in joining, you should get new ones or start a new solo

New Chrome 19 Beta For Windows, Mac and Linux – Adds Open Tab Sync For Android
Thursday 12th of April 2012
Google has released the latest version of their desktop browser — Chrome 19 beta — for Windows, Mac and Linux today. Normally we wouldn’t feature desktop software like this on an Android blog, but the latest version of the browser has been added extra support for Chrome Beta on Android 4.0 devices.When browsing from your computer, a new “Other Devices” option has been added to the bottom of a new tab window, allowing you to pull up your Android Chrome tabs and access them at your leisure on your desktop. And it doesn’t just pull up the tab, but that tab’s history as well. That way you can navigate forward and backward in that tab’s history on your desktop. Pretty revolutionary stuff.The developer’s build of Chrome 20 was also released which now features the Chrome to Mobile option for sending desktop pages directly to your Android 4.0 device. You guys can grab the new Chrome Beta here. Happy browsing![Google Chrome Blog | Via Cnet]
Get an Android-style theme for your Google Chrome browser
Thursday 04th of March 2010
If you are like me and Google is slowing taking over everything you know (in a good way), you have probably downloaded and tried out Google Chrome. One of the great things about Google Chrome has always been the custom skins. While surfing the net and checking out new themes for Chrome, one by the name of “Robot Theme” jumped out, and after taking a look at it I noticed it was basically an Android theme for your browser. While the theme isn’t an exact Android theme, it is pretty close and pretty slick looking when applied to the Chrome browser. Check it out, and let us know what you think of it, or if you know of any other Android related themes for your browser. [via Android and Me]
Chrome browser issue: samsung mobile bookmark default
Saturday 15th of June 2013
I have the updated chrome browser in 4.1.2 Note2. When I open a new chrome browser, the default is "Samsung Mobile" bookmark. I need an additional keystone to go back to my custom bookmark page which is one folder level up. Any way to change the default bookmark page? Compounding the issue, I can't move or remove the Samsung Mobile bookmarks folder nor can I edit the contents of that folder.
Motorola Connect Chrome Browser Extension Goes Live Before The Moto X Announcement
Thursday 01st of August 2013
Motorola was probably hoping to save at least a few surprises for its Moto X press event in New York later today, but someone at headquarters pulled the trigger a bit early. The Motorola Connect extension went live in the Chrome Web Store late last night, and it's currently available to install. Not that it will do any good: you'll need a Motorola DROID MINI, DROID Ultra, DROID MAXX, or the Moto X to use it. The Connect extension allows owners of the latter DROIDs and the X to see phone calls and texts on their desktop browser or Chromebook laptop, using Chrome's fancy new notification system. You can reply directly to texts, but calls will still need to be handled with the phone itself. It should work no matter where you are or what network you're on. From the extension description: Motorola Connect allows you to see text messages and calls coming into your Connect enabled phone on your computer’s Chrome browser. You can read and respond to texts using your keyboard and even know who’s calling before deciding if you should reach for your phone.Motorola Connect is curren
New Chrome Browser
Friday 17th of January 2014
The new Chrome browser allows you to use data compression in the bandwidth management setting. I've been using it a day or two with 30%+ savings, and no apparent hit on speed (actually it seems faster).
