Chrome exploit discovery warrants $60,000 reward from Google

by: Andrew GrushOctober 12, 2012
Google takes a unique approach when it comes to searching for exploits in Chrome. Instead of only utilizing in-house resources to find these potential threats, Google uses hacking competitions. At the company's second sponsored Pwnium hacking competition a potential security issue was unveiled that earned one enterprising hacker a $60,000 payout.

Chrome for Android arrives for devices using Intel x86 processors

by: Gary SimsSeptember 27, 2012
When Motorola Mobility launched its Intel powered RAZR i less than 10 days ago there was some raised eyebrows when it was revealed that the new phone didn't run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and neither could it run the Chrome web browser. This might be cause for concern about any new phone which is released, but considering that Motorola Mobility is owned by Google and, of course, Google is the custodian of Android and the creator of the Chrome web browser, it is almost alarming. Does the left hand know what the right hand is doing?

Is Google aiming for a UI makeover with a radial-style Android menu?

by: Bams SadewoAugust 10, 2012
In mobile devices, a menu bar that permanently sits either on top of bottom of the display can really rob users of their precious screen real estate. This is something that has apparently been lingering on Google’s mind, as well, and the company has applied to patent the use of a radial-style menu in the Android browser and Chrome.

Chrome surpasses IE, claims one third of the browser market

by: LucianAugust 6, 2012

Who knew that Google Chrome would get so far? It now accounts for 1/3 of the market, and it has the highest browser market share as well, surpassing the total market share of IE (IE7, IE8, IE9) on its own. Chrome took 33.4% market share in June, according to StatCounter, while IE took only 32%. Firefox was at 23.7%, while Safari was at 7.1%.

What’s nice about Chrome is that it auto-updates every few weeks, so pretty much everyone is on the latest version of Chrome, benefiting from the latest features and latest performance improvements, and enjoying faster-loading web pages.

Compare this to IE, which has almost the same market [...]

Dolphin Browser HD reaches version 8.7, changes name to “Dolphin Browser”

by: LucianAugust 4, 2012

The Dolphin Browser has been one of Android’s users favorite third-party browsers. Formerly known as Dolphin Browser HD, it’s now changing its name to Dolphin Browser in an effort to simplify things. The change starts with version 8.7 and it brings a series of improvements as well.

The new version includes a cleaner address bar that gives more search suggestions, a better interface for tablets, and “larger space for big thumbs and small keypads.” The new update also allows for easier bookmark management and deletion of unwanted bookmarks, a shortcut directly to the Sonar, as well as “stability and performance [...]

Hackers can exploit NFC, Chrome browser to take over your Android phone

by: Bams SadewoJuly 28, 2012

Despite Google’s valiant attempt to make Android a safer playground for its users by introducing the anti-malware Bouncer service last February, which helps scan apps on Google Play Store for malware and keep them out, experts are still finding security loopholes that can wreak havoc on your Android device.

The first threat we’re going to talk about today comes from the Near Field Communication (NFC) feature on certain Android devices, which is becoming more ubiquitous these days. Though the technology was already used in older phones like the Google Nexus S, released back in 2010, newer devices like Samsung’s Galaxy S3 seem to be [...]

Google Handwrite: A new way to Google on your mobile device

by: LucianJuly 27, 2012

Google Handwrite is one feature that Galaxy Note owners will be happy to get. The newly unveiled function will make the Note’s stylus even more useful – users can now search on Google by handwriting the words. And, while this sounds like the perfect application for the stylus of the Galaxy Note, Handwrite seems to work just as well with fingers.

To use the new Handwrite feature, go to your Search Settings at the bottom of the Google.com page and enable it.  A small toolbar will then pop up at the bottom of the page on smartphones running Android 2.3+, tablets running Android 4.0+, and on all iOS 5+ devices.

The Handwrite input method will work [...]

Google Currents will be pre-installed on all Jelly Bean devices

by: LucianJuly 2, 2012

Chrome won’t be the only app coming pre-installed with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, although Chrome is actually meant to replace the stock Android browser, while Google Currents will be added to all the other Google apps, such as Gmail, Maps, Play Store, and so on.

Google Currents is kind of a hybrid between a RSS reader and a social reader, much like Flipboard, although Flipboard started as just a social reader, pulling articles from your friends’ streams, and only later added RSS support. Google Currents was developed as an alternative to Flipboard, because Flipboard was taking its sweet time arriving on Android. Plus, the team behind it rejected a acquisition [...]
