Audio support is coming to Linux apps with Chrome OS 74

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

I've come to love using my Pixelbook over the last few months, thanks in part to support for Linux applications. Though it's still in its beta stages, I find it incredibly useful. Interestingly, it seems that Google is looking to address one of the limitations: the lack of audio playback for container programs. Based on a some official Project Crostini documents, we might see support for this in Chrome OS 74.

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Microsoft recently made some changes to the "Task view" in Windows 10. As of the Spring 2018 update, it includes Windows Timeline.

Now, you can add Chrome tabs to the list thanks to Redmond's new Web Activities extension. Just install this, and your Chrome tabs will sync to Windows Timeline and other products like Microsoft Launcher for Android.

Chrome testing colorful new setup screen to welcome aboard users

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Google appears to be testing a new welcome page for its Chrome browser. The change jazzes up the previously boring, mostly blank white page with a splattering of colorful shapes, larger text, and bigger buttons — though it seems to be in a very limited rollout for the time being.

They say that first impressions are important, and that's especially true when it comes to the so-called welcome or start-up screens for an app or service.

Monday, February 18th, 2019

You're probably familiar with anchors — the hashtags on the end of links that take you to a specific part of the link (like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_(operating_system)#History). Anchors are handy, but the page has to provide those anchors.

Google removing ability for sites to detect Chrome Incognito Mode

Saturday, February 16th, 2019

While Chrome already sandboxes each tab you have open, Incognito Mode takes further steps to protect your privacy. Cookies and other locally-stored data are erased when the session ends, and history is never recorded. However, sites have been able to use well-known workarounds to determine if they were running under Incognito Mode, and Google is finally addressing them.

The FileSystem API was introduced by Google in 2010, and allows sites to create their own virtual file systems for reading and writing local data.

Chrome might allow users to share links to specific sections of pages

Friday, February 15th, 2019

You're probably familiar with anchors — the hashtags on the end of links that take you to a specific part of the link (like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_(operating_system)#History). Anchors are handy, but the page has to provide those anchors. Google is currently experimenting with a new anchor method, where users can create links that will take someone to any given phrase or sentence on a page.

A commit to the Chromium Gerrit, spotted by Chrome Story, reveals that a new "enable-text-fragment-anchor" flag is being added.
