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.

Chrome 42 now allows push notifications, APIs now available

Almost anything can be done or shared on the Internet right now. The web has proved to us time and again its power to bring information to anyone, anywhere, and anytime. If a person or a brand wants to share an idea, one can easily create a website that provides information and offer a rich online experience. More and more people are going mobile now so it's important that websites adapt and adjust by giving a better mobile experience to people.

Chrome for Android 42: notifications site updates, add sites to homescreen

If Chrome for Android is your default mobile web browser and you frequent several websites often, this latest update to the app would make life easier for you. Version 42 of Google's browser brings a feature where you can opt to receive notifications when certain websites have updated their content. It also gives users the option to add certain websites to their homescreens, so they don't need to keep typing the url on the address bar.

Chrome Live event this April 23 will focus on Chrome for work

Sorry to burst your bubble but Chrome Live isn't what you think. It is not another Google-developed Chrome product to add to your already growing collection of Android- and Chrome-powered devices. It's a Google event happening online. Google just announced the first Chrome Live happening on April 23, an online event that will allow the search company to show off Chrome for Work. Since it's an online event, you can say this is one global affair.

Web Browser for Android TV works ala Chrome but not quite

Android TV is one platform that has yet to be the standard in smart TVs but it's exciting to think about the future of television. TV-watching (couch potatoing?)  has changed in the past decade, thanks to the introduction of the Internet, mobile apps, and the more hi-tech TV models. There are only a few Android TV devices in the market but the platform is what makes them more attractive to use. Apps are still limited though. You'd think a web browser would be easy to develop since Google already has Chrome but there's no official web browser app yet.

More Android apps ready for Chrome OS, porting now open to everyone

In case you didn't know yet, Android apps can now run on Chrome OS. However, you can't just download all apps you see on the Google Play Store because some porting still needs to be done. The first Android apps from Chrome OS were made available September last year and Google added seven more a few months later. This week, the Internet giant has added four more apps so this means there are now 28 Android apps ready to run on your Chromebook.

Chromebook gets cheaper, thanks to Haier and Hisense

People are asking if Chromebooks still matter. In the Android world, it's a 'yes' because the small laptops can run some Android apps. Chromebooks are now preferred in schools and small enterprises because they are affordable, portable, and very useful. For less than $300 or $200, you can get a Chromebook for all your mobile computing needs. They don't need to have high specs because the system does minimal performance. They don't need huge storage space because most programs are cloud-based.
