Chrome OS remains a mystery. It's Google's first desktop operating system, but even today, it's nothing more than words on pages as far as consumers are concerned. We're sure there's internal testing going on as the company prepared to launch the OS onto netbooks in the near future, and now we're seeing even more details to hopefully prove... Read more...
The Web browser battle is seriously heating up. Apple is retooling Safari, Firefox is headed for big things in the next major point release, IE9 is expected to make Internet Explorer desirable again, and Google is finally removing the Beta label from the Mac and Linux versions of Chrome. That's right, there's a new Chrome stable release to... Read more...
Google's own I/O conference in California is wrapping up today, but not before the company goes out with a serious bang. To our knowledge, Google is about the only technology company out there today that is big enough to throw their own party and get people to come, aside from Apple of course. One of the major...

Oh, boy. Internet rumors strike again. Not even 24 hours after the rumor mill "confirmed" that Acer would soon be launching a tablet based around Google's Chrome OS, Acer has stepped forward to address the matter. And the answer, for anxious consumers, isn't a good one. Google's Chrome OS, despite being announced in 2009, has yet to actually... Read more...

My, how the mighty have fallen. It wasn't long ago that Internet Explorer simply dominated the Internet. Everyone used it be default, and no other browser came close in terms of market share. IE was so powerful that the European Union banded together and forced Microsoft to insert a Browser Selection Screen on all new... Read more...
Google has done it once more, and by "it," we mean "turn something in the tech world on its head." BumpTop, a desktop environment that debut last year on Windows 7 and this year on OS X, has just been swallowed whole by the search giant, and while finely laid plans have yet to be made public, assumptions are already...

A lot of things have changed in technology over the past decade. Broadband has replaced dial-up. 1GHz now seems slow. Netbooks are now a reality. Tablets are coming back. Change is everywhere, but some things have sadly remained the same. Printers are still stuck in the stone-age, and ink still costs far more than it reasonably should. Leave... Read more...
In somewhat of a surprise move, Google this week announced it has begun collaborating with Adobe to improve the Flash Player experience in Google Chrome, and as such, has bundled the plug-in with the latest version of Chrome in the developer channel.The implications here are potentially huge. Let's not forget that Google owns YouTube, so the... Read more...
See that headline? If you'd asked us last week if we'd ever use the word "sexy" to describe a browser—particularly a Microsoft browser—we'd have beaten you with a stack of TPS reports. This week, well, it's a different story. The actual IE9 browser isn't available for download yet, but Microsoft has made what it calls the Internet Explorer... Read more...
A ground-breaking event is about to occur in Europe, and it's probably not something that most will expect. It's not some sort of UFO landing or global climate pattern; instead, it's a move by Microsoft that could very well change the browser world forever. Awhile back, the European Commission found it unlawful for... Read more...
With all of this iPad buzz stirring up the tech world over the past couple of weeks, Chrome OS has almost been forgotten. That may have something to do with the fact that Google has yet to officially release the netbook-centric operating system to the public, but still, you'd expect a company like Google to keep the details flowing...

Chrome ended the month of December 2009 with a share of 4.63 percent, while Apple's Safari dropped into fourth place with a share of 4.46 percent.Meanwhile, Internet... Read more...
Google threw a wrench in everyone's expectations when it announced that the Chrome OS wouldn't be widely available to install on just any machine. Unlike Windows 7, which can be installed on pretty much any x86-based machine, Chrome OS will be customized for a specific set of hardware components that Google deems fit. It's an interesting approach,... Read more...
As Google continues on its path to world domination, it's more than just Offline Gmail and Chrome OS getting attention. Just in time for the holidays, Google has announced that its Chrome Web browser is now available (in beta form, of course) for those "other" operating systems. You know, Mac and Linux! We kid, we...

Last week, Google open-sourced its Chromium OS project, more than a year before the operating system is scheduled for release. In doing so, Google hopes a variety of developers and companies will become involved in the project, and has pledged to release regular updates as well as a comprehensive log of bug reports and fixes. We've spent a... Read more...
You know, NVIDIA tends to harsh on Intel every chance it gets, but honestly, it's kind of cute. It's like your brother fussing at you, even though you know he loves you--you just can't help but smile. But when it comes to NVIDIA and Google, now that's a couple we could see going to the senior prom. And if new reports... Read more...
Google's pushing to get more adoption for its nascent browser, Chrome, but hasn't been making serious inroads, particularly in the Enterprise.

Google Chrome Frame... Read more...

Google's Chrome exited beta last December, well ahead of when you might normally expect a Google product to do so. It wasn't, however, because the browser was necessarily ready for prime time; it was because OEMs would not pre-install a beta product on their computers, and Google longed for those deals. It's finally managed to ink such a deal,... Read more...
