On the fifth birthday of Google’s Chrome browser, the company has announced big plans for their flagship web browser. Chrome Apps, a new-generation of applications that build on top of Chrome that work cross platform and offline, just like any other desktop application.
Chrome, the popular web browser from search and advertising giant Google, did not invent tabs or add-ons. Both of these were the creation of Mozilla and its Firefox browser. However, Chrome has become the web browser of choice among the tech crowd, and even, perhaps, the more mainstream crowd.
Of course, I can not tell you what extensions you will necessarily like best, or what will fit your needs. However, I can attempt to steer you towards some extensions that you may not be aware of and that you may just find very useful in your day-to-day life on the web. This is a personal list, of course, as all of these sorts of things are. But, it is what has been useful to me and, hopefully, you will find one or two, or even more, that you will find useful as well.
So, with all of that in mind, then let us get on with the list.
How many web sites do you visit each day to read the news you’re interested in? Increasing numbers of people are discovering how useful a new reader can be thanks to the fact that updates from all of the sites you’re interested in can be viewed in one place.
News Bento is a streamlined Windows 8 news reader that can be used to subscribe to newsfeeds or used to access feeds you have added to Google Reader.
How many cloud storage services do you use? If you’re anything like me, you probably have files scattered across numerous different services and have to move between apps or web sites to find what you’re looking for.
Joukuu is a service that makes it possible to access multiple online storage services from one place so you can manage all of your backups and files without the need to have several clients installed or to constantly switch between web sites.
Windows 8 has finally been released by Microsoft, an operating system that is a surprisingly big overall advancement of the software and one that is perfect for tablets. However, since it’s initial announcement, a culture of smaller, seven-inch tablets has emerged that might just pose a threat to Microsoft and Windows 8.
Especially with Apple’s launch of the iPad mini (creatively launched to presales at the same time and date as Windows 8 itself), we’re going to take a look at what Google, Amazon and Apple’s effort might do to hinder the very potential of Windows 8.
We all love to read our favorite blogs from all over the Internet everyday, sometimes multiple times a day. However remembering which sites you visit can be a hassle. So many people bookmark them in a web browser; nothing is wrong with that, but the best way is to subscribe to RSS feeds with a feed reader.
FeedDemon is an RSS feed reader that can pull in all of your RSS feeds and update them at specific intervals. FeedDemon also has a few great features that we will explore as well. So without further or due, lets review FeedDemon!
With the decline of WebOS and Blackberry, the contest for the best mobile OS has largely been narrowed to just three: Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 (WP7). Each operating system has its benefits and its downfalls, and as each matures, it will be interesting to see which adds the killer features to sway the majority of users. At this point, it’s obvious that Apple has the app crown for now, Google owns the customization realm, and Windows is catering to business users and anyone looking for something sophisticated and modern.
As someone who has used all three systems over the years and generally kept up with the news for each, I feel I can provide a decent overview of where they stand today. The sad truth is that all the OS hopping I’ve done is because each excels in a few areas over the others, but there is no one OS to rule them all.Hit the jump for a detailed comparison.

Most people spend the majority of their time on their computer on the internet – you’re either checking your email, reading blog posts, shopping for products, watching videos, editing documents, or a million other things.
Naturally, it’s quite important what web browser you’re going to use – it’s the window through which you can view anything on the internet. You want your web browser to be fast, simple to use, have all the features you want, and work as it’s supposed to. Google’s browser Chrome does all this and more.
