First Look at “Make Page Mobile-Friendly” in Chrome Dev for Android

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

It sounds like there are still a few bugs to work out, but at least Google is making an effort to keep up with Mozilla regarding solutions for mobile friendly page apps.

Mobile-Friendly View is a new feature of Google Chrome Dev for Android that users of the mobile browser can use to turn pages that are not optimized for mobile access into pages that are. Not every web page on the Internet is optimized for mobile access. This is especially true for pages that have not been optimized in a long while. While you can usually access these pages on mobile devices, you will more often than not notice that it is difficult to access the main content of those pages.


On May 1, Extensions Not Hosted in Store will be Disabled for Windows Chrome Users

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

If you’re a Chrome user and you’ve installed third party extensions, get ready to see them disappear … unless you update to Chrome Dev or Canary.

Google Chrome has powerful extension support that is second only to Firefox’s in the browsing world. Up until now, Chrome users were allowed to install extensions from the official Chrome Web Store, and also from third-party sources. A third-party source in this regard is any website that is not the Chrome Web Store. This includes userscripts on, or the popular Media Hint extension that enables you to bypass country restrictions on select media sites on the Internet.


Google Chrome Hanging on Startup

Friday, September 21st, 2012

If you’ve been having problems with Chrome crashing during start-up, you might want to check out this article …

For the past two days I have been noticing a issue with Google’s Chrome browser. Whenever I would start the browser, it would hang for a couple of seconds before the tabs of the previous session were loaded. This happened even if I had only one tab open that needed to be restored, so that I was pretty certain it was not caused by tab overload. I also tried switching to load the new tab page only on start up of the browser, which also did not resolve the issue. I’m experiencing hangs not only in Chrome Dev but also in Chrome Canary, which are both installed on a Windows 7 64-bit pro system.


Google Chrome Dev Hits Version 7

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

It doesn’t sound like there’s much to get excited about here … maybe I’ll wait for Version 8.

The Chromium developers have really redefined versioning at least when it comes to their web browser. The browser that made its first appearance in 2008 has now reached version 7 in the developer channel, with the likelihood that the beta and stable channels will follow suite later this year.

Usually, a major leap in version correlates to a big change in a product. Not so with Google Chrome 7, as the first release fixes one issue for all operating systems, one Mac specific issue and stability fixes for the Chrome Frame feature.
