Native dark mode in Google Chrome for Windows 10 now available in Canary channel

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

The overwhelming demand for dark modes in apps is beginning to see serious results now, to the point where 2019 could be the year we see system-wide dark modes across all the major platforms. Windows 10 has already implemented this, but it relies on app developers to do their part, which Google is now doing for the Chrome browser.

As reported by TechDows, Google engineer Peter Kasting filed a bug report back in May outlining the need for a dark mode in respect of the Windows 10 light or dark theme choice, sparking a discussion on how best to achieve it.

Show off your Chrome dino-game skills with the arrival of cross-device high score sync

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Since 2014, Chrome has featured a delightful little time waster that kicks in when your device doesn't have internet access. It's a game featuring a dinosaur that hops over cacti (and, eventually, other dinosaurs), in which your score increases as you progress through a pixelated desert. Until recently, that score was lost when you stopped playing, but as of Chrome version 72, it's finally saved — and it even syncs between your devices.

Canary Flex weatherproof security camera half off MSRP and only $100 at Verizon

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

Smart home gadgets, especially outdoor smart home cameras, tend to be on the expensive side, but Verizon has pushed out a substantial discount on the Canary Flex, an indoor/outdoor weatherproof HD security camera. Right now you can snag one for just $100 at Verizon of all places, which is half of the $200 MSRP, which Canary is still asking for at its own site.

If you're a newcomer to Canary products, keep in mind that you'll need to spend more to get a membership, which is required to get any real functionality out of the company's products — though it wasn't always that way.

Chrome may get a new way to share tabs between mobile and desktop, plus incognito media notification changes

Friday, October 19th, 2018

In the dark, dank, early days of Android, sending content from your phone to your desktop required either a third-party tool like Pushbullet or Google's Chrome to Phone and companion Chrome to Mobile extension. Thankfully Chrome switched to a convenient "tab sync" multi-device history that allows you to share sites across devices easily. Even so, it's not the most direct system, and according to Chrome Story, a "self share" feature that provides a more obvious workflow may be coming to Chrome.

Network file shares now enabled by default in Chrome OS Canary channel

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

As of the latest Canary build (v70), Chrome OS now has network file shares enabled by default. SMB sharing was previously possible via a flag that was added back in March, although it was quite unstable at that time. It should hopefully perform better now, allowing you to add a file share service such as Samba.

Chrome evangelist François Beaufort announced the news on Google+ and linked to the relevant Chromium Gerrit, adding that it makes viewing a shared folder pretty easy when you've gone through the setup process.

Chrome OS is experimenting with a centered shelf layout

Friday, July 20th, 2018

The team behind Chrome OS is often testing new features via flags, and the latest of these is a centered shelf layout. The concept is pretty simple - the apps you have on your taskbar, called a 'shelf' by Google, get centered with this flag. Fancy stuff.

In this experiment, the pinned apps are on the left, while the other icons are on the right. I would say the change is reminiscent of macOS's taskbar, but it's kind of hard to claim given that this is just a matter of alignment, and it doesn't disappear by default like Apple's does.

Canary partners with Noonlight to introduce Safety Button

Friday, July 13th, 2018

Canary is known for its popular smart home security cameras, but it's now adding a new feature to its app that'll help keep you safe when out and about, too. It's joining forces with Noonlight, a service that integrates with other connected platforms such as Google Home, IFTTT, and Alexa to trigger emergency responses when you're in danger.

With help from Noonlight, Canary is adding a Safety Button to its app that can immediately share your GPS location and personal details with first responders.

Experimental ‘Chrome Duplex’ UI now has a tweaked address bar and easy tab switching

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Google has been working on a new Chrome Android interface for nearly two years now. The first iteration was 'Chrome Home', which moved the address bar to the bottom of the screen. That interface was essentially done, but Google decided to scrap it for unknown reasons. The project was changed to 'Chrome Duplex' in February, with the address bar back at the top and a new toolbar at the bottom (much like Samsung Internet).
