Chrome for Android updated, pull down to refresh feature added

Google's Chrome Team has just updated the Chrome app for Android. The mobile web browser has received a bit of changes that if you're not observant, you won't actually notice. The Internet giant updated the app last January and added updates in line with the Material Design elements and Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Dolphin Browser now with flash player for Android Lollipop devices

While it is not that popular of a video platform anymore, there are still some websites that use Flash videos (like Facebook sometimes).

Most of the time, it gets freaky because you're clueless how these brands know what you've been looking for. It's simple--there are trackers in the world wide web waiting to collect and share your data.
