I'm noticing an awesome new feature after upgrading my Chrome browser. If you open a blank tab, one of the bars on the bottom it offers is "Other Devices."
It shows all of the pages that are currently open in your Chrome browser on other computers. I think this is cool because I use Chrome at work, at home, and on my laptop, and I'm already finding it insanely useful to see what the other computers have open and be able to pick up where I left off without having to email links to myself.
And no, I don't feel threatened by Google knowing my browser history. If I want to browse in secret I use incognito mode anyway.
I have to guess that eventually Chrome will be the Android browser.
Somewhat surprisingly -- it's a fast browser on a PC or Mac -- the system requirements appear to be too high for a tablet or phone. Chrome is a failure on our first-generation iPad; far too sluggish.
Ice Cream Sandwich.
LS: siince both are based on khtml, yes astonishing.
i guess the ipad browser has more optimisation for the hardware...

Someone's logging in as "admin" and has been doing so for a while. No big
deal; it's not a real admin account, so this is really just some douche

Why is the GoogleBot logging in with a username "admin" and password "admin"?
Surely it is just a spelling error and they originally wanted to be funny by using Adam as user and password. Same with the accidently recorded unencrypted wifi traffic, that was just a programming glitch, too. They would never ever do something really bad!
Ah, btw, if you happen to fornicate your dog while they are driving past your window fotographing your streets, it was your responsibility to close the curtains as it was your responsibility to change your admin password... Thats no experiment in massive site hacking, you are overreacting!
But while we are on this, is there a way to blacklist usernames on "open" registration instances of citadel? The dictator in me demands censorship!
What I mean is: When I have an open citadel instance where users can selfregister accounts without approval of the management, I'd like to blacklist certain user names, such as admin/Administrator/Retlih/Zuckerberg/Godwin/M*th*f*ck*/whatever. Should I file this under longterm feature request?
The Google tablet they currently advertise already has Chrome on it.
I LOOOOVE my nexus 7, and yes, it has chrome.
Oh, cool! Yours came in recently, then!
I think I've had it for a little over a week. :)
OTOH, I'm back to using a nokia as my phone.
Truth be told, I'm not that sad. It does hotspots, and it works well as a phone.
Email works reasonably, and that's the thing I need most when I'm out.
I rather enjoy having a phone that the kids don't always want to play on...
I want a Nexus 7. I may have to get impulsive and order one.
It's a sweet machine. I'm still waiting for my bluetooth keyboard case.
Ok so I had a chance to play with a N7 in a store. It's a little on the small side. I want something I can carry around and get real work done on without having to lug my big 17" laptop around. My netbook is on its last legs so I'm just about officially in the market for a replacement.
I'm thinking about either the Asus Transformer or the Samsung Galaxy Tab with a keyboard attached to it for when I need to do non-casual work.
The idea of using a tablet as a laptop replacement is beginning to sound appealing, as long as I can add the keyboard when I want to.
