CyanogenMod to release Gello, a Chromium-based browser

If there’s one thing you can be sure of, it’s that you will never run out of browser choices for Android – in the Google Play Store alone, you may possibly drown in all the choices you have for browser apps. Today we have an announcement that CyanogenMod – those guys behind your CM11 and CM12 custom ROMs – that they are working on “Gello”, a browser that is based on the open source Chromium code.

Chrome web browser updated with Touch to Search, Faster Checkout

Google has once again updated the Chrome browser for Android as well as Mac, Windows, and Linux. One of the main features is "Touch to Search" that is now available to all. With this feature, you can discover more about words simply by touching them on the screen. It's one cool feature that doesn't require the user to type or use voice search. Just tap on a word or phrase and then search results would show up.

Google Now On Tap feature works without having to leave an app

Over at the Google I/O 2015, Google's Director of Product Management, Aparna Chennapragada, discussed that Google Now will soon receive an important update. In the next few weeks, expect to see changes in the the feature as the tech giant is set to focus on giving better Context, Answers, and Actions. Google Now has been very useful but the new features can provide immediate answers with the "Now on Tap".

Google to have offline support for Chrome, Maps, YouTube

While most of us are almost always online whether at home, at the office, at a restaurant, and even while mobile, there are times when your data fails, your WiFi is erratic, or you simply just want to go off the grid (but not totally). However, a lot of the apps and features we use require that we're online always. Well that's about to change, at least for some products. Google announced during its ongoing I/O conference that they will be giving offline support for Chrome, Maps, and YouTube.

Google not doing extensions for mobile Chrome, if you were wondering

Just in case you were thinking it, Google wants to stop you right there. The answer is “no, they will not be enabling Chrome extensions for the browser’s mobile app”. This was the gist of the answer from a veritable Chrome insider as he went on one of reddit’s famous “AMA” (ask me anything) sessions. The mobile browser will remain extension-less for the foreseeable future.

ADB for Chrome is getting a bunch of cool updates

For Android power users and those who like tinkering and tweaking with their mobile device’s operating system, the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) is nothing but essential. The downside, there’s hardly any GUI to work with and people need to make sure their command line skillz are on point. That’s where ADB for Chrome enters, providing control and a good interface for ADB users straight from their browsers. A recent update just made the tool that much sweeter.

Chrome Dev now available on Play Store

The Chrome web browser app for Android is always being updated. That's actually an understatement since tech giant Google is regularly working on improving the web browser. We've lost count of how many times Google and Chrome developers have released versions of the app but we know that they come in four main channels from Stable to Beta then Dev, and then Canary.
