For Linux users wondering when they would get a chance to use Google's Chrome browser instead of the open source Chromium version, the wait is over: today the Google team has announced the beta release of Google Chrome for Linux.
The elves on the Google Chrome team have been especially busy this holiday season. It’s not even Christmas, and they’ve wrapped up and delivered Google Chrome betas for Mac and Linux, and an Extensions beta for Google Chrome on Windows and Linux.
A browser nowadays is more than a tool for accessing the web. With the right extensions, you can put it to many other nifty uses. Case in point: the Chrome Remote Desktop extension which turns Google Chrome and Chromium into an instant, secure, and hassle-free solution for accessing and controlling remote machines.
Starting in January, Google's Chrome browser will not allow you to install extensions that aren't hosted in Google's own Chrome Web Store.
While Google had recently increased its security measures for keeping malicious extensions out of Chrome by adding additional warnings and disabling silent extension installs, the team clearly felt that it had to go a step further to keep Windows machines safe.
The web browsers in the software repository of Linux Mint are usually set to use some custom search engines. For example, Yahoo search and DuckDuckGo are used as the default search engines in Firefox, the preinstalled web browser of Linux Mint 13.
When google released version 4 with extensions compatibility Google chrome extensions comes really handy.
I like how google chrome separate tabs and extensions with each process for task...
