Step 7:
After Getting Quite a lot of Search Results you would have landed into some Forums with discussions where they teach how to Change your Google Chrome Path or edit the registry key using regedit. Example


XP
“C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe”

Simply add “–enable-extensions” without the quotes to the end and close out regedit.

Now it should read:
“C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –enable-extensions

I recommend you NOT to Change any paths or edit registry.

Why do you take extra Strain doing Machine level Path Changes when You Have a dedicated Channel for That which Automatically Updates to the Google Chrome Browser with Both Extensions and BookMark Sync Support Just in One Click!!!

Beta channel: People who like to use and help refine the latest features subscribe to the Beta channel [Remember this is not beta Version, its Beta Channel]

Chrome OS – Google’s answer to Windows??

[ad#nandini1]


Share Orkut

The much hyped and anticipated product of the year is almost ready for its release. Google Chrome will release in about a week’s time if sources are to believed. The entire computing fraternity is waiting in bated breath to see if Google’s OS can prove to be a formidable competitor to Microsoft’s Windows. As all of us know, Windows has been the clear leader in the OS market with around 90% of the market share. In fact, Microsoft Windows is the de-facto standard for operating systems all over the world. Other OS’s came and went, but did not create as much as a flutter in the market.

Google Chrome OS

But this time, things may be different. Google expects to create a wave with their new lightweight operating system. “Speed, simplicity & security” are the 3 key aspects of Google Chrome. Since the era of web based computing has arrived, Google Chrome has been designed in such a way that users can just start up & get on to the web in a few seconds. All of the user’s data will be stored in a cloud so that a user can have access to data anywhere. And this is expected to be done in minimal time. Hence, the user interface is also very minimal .

Chrome is in fact a windowing system built on top of a linux kernel. Though linux is a vey reliable and most importantly – stable OS, it did not pose any major challenge to Windows. The key reason for its failure being that you had a number of vendors proving you different flavors of Linux and users were definitely confused. But Google Chrome is going to catapult linux kernel into popularity. The sheer brand name is sufficient to create awareness about linux kernels.

Another key factor that lies with Chrome is that its open source – free of cost! And for you computer geeks, the source code of Chrome OS is expected to be available later this year/early 2010. If reports are to be believed, Chrome is also expected to support desktop applications like Microsoft Word & Photoshop.

But the biggest question that is currently on all user’s mind is – Will Google be able to beat Microsoft??

[ad#nandinimid]

Honestly speaking, these are very early days. Even if Google Chrome becomes a roaring success, there is no guarantee that it will overtake Windows. Millions of developers or users may just not migrate to Chrome when they have been using Windows for more than a decade or so. Seriously, it takes a lot of time for users to switch to Chrome. This may range from a 2-3 years to probably a decade. And with Windows 7 receiving positive reviews from critics & users alike, things may become tougher for Google.

But one things for sure – Now Microsoft faces a stiff competitor in the market it dominated for so long.

Is Opening Links in New Tab, A Lazy way of Browsing?

[ad#ad-2]

We all Have a Dozen Lot of Web Browsers, Each Browser boasts of its own functionality…
Some of the Top Web Browsers being Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera , Safari etc…

TAB-UNTAB

Why Some One Would Still like a Traditional way of Browsing?
How Using The Old Web browsers could make your browsing life simpler?

Consider The browser Internet Explorer 6 (IE6), And here in IE6 you cannot open the links in New Tab (There is no Tabbed Browsing available)
So What would you do if you have to stay in the same page which you are in and still want to open a link present in the current page?

You will be in dilemma to prioritize the Pages.. Though the IE6 browser provides you the Back tab functionality (where you could go back to last action) you might not be comfortable doing it…

[ad#mid]

What Am I trying to say?
The Traditional Kind of Browsing allows you to make very quick decisions and everything under some base.

Consider the Google Search. You will be searching with some keyword and you got Top 10 Results in Google Home Page…

There are actually Two Types of Action:

Action1:
The Person with Latest Tabbed Browser like Mozilla / Chrome would open all 10 Top Results in 10 separate Tabs of Same Browser.
Though he will be exposed to lot of Resources under the same browser very handily, this May not help him in taking quick decisions… There are 10 results for his query and he has to decide over the 10! More Overhead!

and Again it goes on! the 1 result out of 10 which he chooses is not final, he would again go on for Yet another Link(which he opens in New Tab Again) making his browsing life very interesting and exploring but don’t you think it delays his Job and Making very Complex?

tabbed browsing

Action2:

The Person with Traditional Browser (Untabbed browser) Will be very Quicker in his decisions… (Very Less Exposed to Resources though)…

The Person when he sees Top 10 search results for his query, he would be choosing the best one within the 10 results and once he clicks on 1 of 10 results, There is high probability that he stays in the selected page and would stick to that…

Untabbed browsing is better in One way, it reduces the complexity and helps you to take instant decisions (unlike opening each and every link in new tab as in Modern Tabbed browser)

untabbed

You might be wondering why i didn’t consider The Factor Opening Link in New Window. Though Opening link in New Window is nice option (even present in traditional browser), I just wanted to quote the user experience within a single Window… and of course opening links in New Window increases the Overhead on Task Bar!

I would be soon writing on Opening Links in New Window depending on your responses to this post!

Feel free to Agree or Criticize This Article! Don’t you think Tabbed Browsing is making you lazy/ Complex?
