Ginger Chrome Extension brings Ginger's advanced spelling and grammar checks to your browser. Ginger's unique algorithm considers context when checking spelling and grammar -- reducing errors introduced by incorrect checking. If you've ever had to reject or correct changes made by spelling and grammar checkers because the program couldn't understand your sentence, you can see how contextual corrections could make a difference. Ginger's Chrome Extension helps you avoid errors when browsing, posting, and entering data online by flagging errors and suggesting corrections. Ginger Chrome Extension is free but requires Ginger to work, but Ginger is … Read more
Apple's new mobile operating system for the iPad and iPhone, iOS 7, has a distinctive look that's easily recognizable. The design isn't for everyone, however, as Jason Parker noticed from comments left in his iOS 7 review. If you do appreciate the new look of iOS 7, there's a Chrome browser extension that might be for you.
The IOS 7 New Tab Page Chrome extension replaces the regular new tab page with an interface that looks just like iOS 7. It comes with a default set of "apps," which are just shortcuts to Web … Read more
Chromebooks are becoming increasingly popular. The affordable computers currently account for four of the top five best-selling laptops on Amazon, ranking higher than Apple's MacBooks and various Windows 8 laptops. With price tags under $300 and a strong advertising budget provided by Google, the Chromebook's success shouldn't come as a complete surprise.
The question remains, however, who's buying these computers? I rarely see a Chromebook out in public, and chances are you've never seen one. In fact, the only time I run into a Chromebook is at an industry event, usually being tested by another … Read more
It's time to start talking about the iPad 6.
Just kidding. While the iPad rumor mill stops to catch its breath for a second, I'll round up everything we got -- and maybe more importantly, what we didn't get -- at the Apple event on Tuesday.
Also this week, LG filed for some Chrome trademarks, which has me wondering whether we'll see a Chromebook from LG soon, and Microsoft could throw its hat into the smartglasses ring, which I wouldn't really mind.
Thanks for watching!
Editors' note: I mistakenly said that the "new iPad&… Read more
Google Chrome's rumored parental control feature moved into Chrome beta on Tuesday, and it stands to make Chrome and Chrome OS even more appealing to parents and teachers.
Chromebooks have done well in the United States, capturing around a quarter of the sub-$300 PC market in the past year. The low-price laptops also have gained attention from educators, in part because of their price, but also because they include keyboards, essential for teaching children typing skills.
Supervised Users would give Chrome OS a long-missing feature: multiple accounts that can be differentiated by privilege status. For now, a supervised … Read more
LG Electronics could be prepping to jump into the Chrome OS market.
The company filed for trademarks on three names that contain the word Chrome -- ChromeOne, ChromeDesk, and ChromeStation. Filed on October 15, all three trademarks list the device class as "Laptop computers; Computers; Convertible computers; Tablet computers."
In January of 2012, LG signed a deal with Microsoft that allows it to use operating system patents for devices running Android and Chrome OS. LG has also already teamed up with Google to create the Nexus 4 smartphone and the upcoming Nexus 5, so a Chrome OS partnership … Read more
When you're browsing the Web, you will probably come across some pages that are far too long, with little to no navigation shortcuts. Generally, using your trusty friend Ctrl + F can help you skip ahead to whatever you're looking for. Unfortunately, you may not know the exact wording that the page is going to use, or maybe your phrase appears hundreds of times. Instead of wasting your time skimming the Web page, try using a Chrome extension like Scrollbar of Contents.
This extension helps you skip all the reading you don't care about and get to the … Read more
Safari pulled in the highest usability score among the top five mobile browsers, according to a new report from Fixya.
Apple's mobile browser took home a grade of 1.31, far outpacing the stock Android browser, Opera, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. The scores were assigned based on the number of problems reported on Fixya, along with market share data from NetMarketShare. The fewer "problem impressions" given to each browser, the higher the score.
In Safari's favor were its simple interface, its Reading List feature, and its ability to let users perform multiple tasks from a … Read more
Microsoft will cut off support for Windows XP in April 2014, but Google will keep the XP version of Chrome updated for another year.
In a blog posted Wednesday, Mark Larson, director of engineering and superintendent of public safety for Google Chrome, said that Chrome support for XP users won't end until April 2015. That means Chrome XP users will continue to receive updates and patches to keep the browser secure. As Larson said, malware often sneaks its way onto computers through holes in unpatched browsers.
Microsoft's pulling of the XP plug next April means that the now … Read more
