Google Chrome invaded by Android

By
Home Inspector with Elliott Home Inspection

I am joking with my title sort of.

Google just released something that as of this writing most of you know nothing about though you may if you use Google Chrome browser which last I checked was still behind Internet Explorer and Fire Fox .

With this new development however that may all change.

Now that Google has sucked us in with the Android operating system on the phones more and more of us are using, they are turning my internet experience into a giant version of my phone and I love it Darn it.

Go to this website and start downloading apps that will appear as thumbs that look just like your phones screen .https://chrome.google.com/webstore?hl=en-US

There are some really cool apps and some are just thumbs for websites while others paste them selves to your upper right toolbar.

The site is full of themes or skins for your Chrome Browser also.(see my new one below).

This first picture shows you what my home screen for Chrome looks like now that I have added a few of the apps which in fairness are called extensions

This following shot shows you what the web page at the Chrome Web store looks like

OK next blog is back on subject regarding porches and decks.

Meanwhile go to the site on your Chrome browser and enjoy.https://chrome.google.com/webstore?hl=en-US

 

Since I wrote this I found a great app called Speed Dial that allows you to pick any number of URL's and create thumbs for the Browser landing page and have been using it .

This pre loads all your favorite sites.(12-14-10)

Hi Michelle

This is actually for your netbook,tablet, laptop or home computer.

Just go to the link from your Chrome browser if you have it.If you do not have chrome already and not everyone does  you may get it as an alternative to Internet explorer, Fire Fox,Opera or whatever else you might have.Down load Chrome from here first if you wish to and you will be glad you did.http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/landing_chrome.html?hl=en

Howdy and afternoon to you Bob

Bob, from what I also understand Google Chrome sure is still behind Fire Fox, which is what I use on my CPU's, Laptops, Notebooks and tablets. I use Fire Fox as my main browser on them, because I really like using the Scribe Fire tool.

Even though this here ole country cowboy has a IT background, along with many other things. I ain't got into those there smart cell phones as of yet. I sure can see what a mighty big help the Chrome Web store and those apps would be to the many folks that do use the smart phones. Plus this here fine blog post of yours, my friend sure is a mighty big help for the folks that use them, to learn about them there cell phone app tools to use.

Have a good one

Dale with a IT background.  Whodda thunk it!  But like him, I prefer Fire Fox.  Tried Chrome.  Found it too intrusive.  Same reason I dumped AOL.  To each their own.

Erby do me a favor and give it a try.

I preferred Fire Fox up till last night and this really has totally changed my internet experience. 

Just go to the links by first downloading chrome browser and then go to the web store to pick a few apps.

I promise you will come back asking me why you never knew about this before.

Well it never existed till yesterday is why.

Dale I had no idea you were an IT expert but remember this is not for the cell phone but is for your regular computer and I urge you to also give it a try.
