Pandora’s New Layout Came When It Was Supposed To

Pandora’s new layout is a welcome change for me, primarily because it is based on HTML5. With the previous version of Pandora, my 32-bit Firefox browser would often crash on my 64-bit operating system due to the flash player.

Since, I no longer use Firefox, it hasn’t been a problem with good ol’ trusty Chrome, but it’s still nice to know that Firefox will be safe.

Chrome OS Has Been Hacked, What Now?

After Google has stated time and time again how secure its Chrome operating system was, we’ve just got wind that the operating system has been hacked. Now, before you start freakin’ out, don’t worry, it wasn’t some 14 year old.

The hackers were actually two researchers from the Black Hat security conference with White Hat security and they got through the ScratchPad- a Chrome application that lets you compose text files and save them to Google Docs.

IE Users Angry Over Accusation Of Having Low IQ

AptiQuant is the research firm behind the survey from which they inferred that Internet Explorer users are usually dumb and have low IQ levels when compared to Chrome, Mozilla or Safari users.

This is a highly profane statement regarding IE users which have led them to a fury against the consulting company. Since the release of study results, IE users have threatened to file a law suit against the company and have sent hate mails to the company. The company performed more than 100,000 IQ tests and compiled the results on the bases of browser a user used.

Chrome 13 Features Instant Pages & Print Preview

With surveys declaring IE users dumb and of low IQ, Chrome is definitely making news as the fastest and lightest web browser ever made. I don’t doubt Chrome’s speed and portability; however, calling IE users “low IQ” is a little rude. Isn’t it?

Apart from these stories what we are talking about is search giant Google’s newer version of their self proclaimed world’s fastest browser, Google Chrome.

Google Detects Malware Causing Search Traffic

Google has just detected a malware on users’ system which causes unnecessary search traffic on the servers. Google has tried to overcome this problem by sending a notification on every computer that might be infected.

Google found out that this unusual traffic was due to a malicious software on users’ computers. Google claims that this malware might have infected users’ computer through other websites which the user himself might be unaware of. Hence, by notifying the user on their Google search page, Google can make the user to take an action against it.

Virgin America Offering Chromebooks For Your Flight

Virgin America will soon make chromebooks available to its passengers at select airport gates from the first of July through September 30th. Passengers will even be able to take them on select flights. Those who do choose to take it on board, will receive free in-flight WiFi as well.

The chromebooks will initially be available for passengers who are flying from San Francisco International Airport Terminal 2, and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) or Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

Firefox 5 Arrives Ahead Of Schedule

Even though I am personally not a fan of the Firefox browser (the 32-bit version crashes a lot on my 64-bit OS), Firefox 5 is now available for download, three days prior to its initial June 21st release. The version ready for download is considered stable, and users can download it for Windows, Mac, or Linux.

Believe it or not, development on the next version of Firefox, Firefox 6, is currently in alpha testing (the phase before beta testing) and will probably hit sometime by the end of this summer. Now what about for all you 64-bit operating systems with over 3GB of system RAM? Well, you’re still stuck with using 32-bit browsers since Adobe has not yet released a stable version of Flash for 64-bit.

Google Introduces Image-Search, Voice Recognition, + Instant Pages

Google is introducing new features, engineered within mobile devices, such as voice and image search to its traditional Google search box. The company claimed that they will roll out a speech-recognition tool displayed as a microphone button on the right side of Google’s search box for a select number of visitors on Tuesday.

For now, it will only be available on Google’s Chrome Web Browser, a browser that claims 12.5% of the web browsing market share. The new speech recognition tool was programmed to take input both from standard English as well as varying accents to help create a platform for everyone to use.

Acer Coming Out W/ 10″ Oak Trail Tablet

Acer is expected to launch a 10-inch Android Honeycomb tablet with the new Intel Oak Trail processor, scheduled for July. Acer has been known to be a company of many ‘firsts’, launching one of the first Android-based netbooks back in 2009, it was of no surprise to see the company adopt the Chrome operating system for its notebooks.

After hearing earlier about the Windows 8 scheduled release next year, we wonder what Acer might have in store (pun intended) for us then.
