Dear Readers: why do you still use Internet Explorer?

Dear Readers: why do you still use Internet Explorer?

This week we've learned two very important facts regarding the most infamous web browser of all, Internet Explorer: first that Microsoft intends to auto-update all of their older versions for users to the newest IE version 9, and second that Google Chrome 15 is now the most popular web browser version in the world. Though when you add up all the users using ANY version of Internet Explorer, you find that it still dominates this planet by a long shot, it's still rather interesting that any one browser has taken the lead over the ultra-dominant browser made so fantastically giant by its pre-installed status on Windows-toting machines worldwide. So what's your excuse?

Google Chrome browser reinvigorates Native Client push for game developers

Google Chrome browser reinvigorates Native Client push for game developers

When it comes to promoting your web browser to the internet, it can get pretty meta pretty quick, and but when your Google and you've got your hands in every single technologically related outlet on the planet and you want to even promote one component of a product you've got, you should have no trouble -- that's what Google is doing here with "Native Client" integration on their Chrome web browser. Having announced the game store for Google Chrome earlier this year along with Native Client, aka NaCl for short, it became rather apparent to many that this was no joke - real high-quality games could definitely sit in this space - now Google is seeing other groups like SpaceTime Studios adopt NaCl for themselves and they've decided to sound the horn once more.

First there was a Samsung Series 5 Chromebook that had two colors and a 3G as well as wifi version, then there's this one: the Acer Chromebook.

Angry Birds for Chrome Out Today [Special Edition VIDEO]

The Mighty Eagle took the stage at Google I/O during the second day's keynote to raving applause, his bright red hoodie with Angry Bird in tow. His announcement was that Angry Birds was coming to the biggest platform of all - the web. This version of Angry Birds will be running on Chrome to begin with and will be released in a Beta version. This version will be released at 60 frames per second easily (meaning it'll probably be better, if you know what i mean,) and it's built in WebGL.

Google Chrome’s +1 Extension : Clear as Day

Google Chrome’s +1 Extension : Clear as Day

If you were here yesterday at about this time, you saw an article that yours truly had written about how Google Chrome was being promoted via an inspiring project that took a foothold and grew using the fantastic power of the internet and its quick and easy sharing abilities. Today it appears that the newest video in this series has let loose a Google Chrome extension that adds to the repertoire of a perhaps soon to be explosive Google project that works with their search results (and much more, we must assume,) it being called simply: +1. Did they mean to leak this image, or was it just a tiny mistake?

Google Chrome Promoted with Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project

Google Chrome Promoted with Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project

Below you'll see a commercial for Google Chrome which uses a project by gay-rights activist Dan Savage. The project he speaks about that eventually ties itself in with Google Chrome is the "It Gets Better" project. You've almost certainly seen a video from the It Gets Better project, and if you haven't, you've probably seen a parody of one of the videos and not even realized it. It's a series of videos spread on YouTube started by one created by Dan Savage, a fellow who had a difficult time in high school, getting harassed and bullied because he was gay. His message was, and still is now, that "it gets better." Over time, and through the realization that he was not alone, it got better for him, and it'll get better for everyone else in similar situations. But what does all that have to do with Google Chrome?

Firefox 4 To Be Final Major Update, Quicker Chrome-Like Updates Ahead

Mozilla will change the way they update their browser after the release of Firefox 4 and will take on a more Chrome-like release model. Mozilla has been releasing only major updates over the last six years while Google's Chrome has already hit version 9 after only two years. With this final major release, Mozilla plans to do smaller, quicker releases as soon as new features are available rather than holding them back for a larger update.
