Google Chrome is considered to be the leading one in the war of the browsers in many different ways. It has all the necessary and required features when it comes to speed, performance and many other such things. If you try to access any of the feed such as http://www.clickonf5.org/feed then you would be getting the content in the format of code unlike Safari, Firefox and IE. But recently there has been released one extension by Google which would make the feeds readable. With the help of this extension people would be able to read the feeds without any problem. The users would also be able to subscribe for many of the different platforms such as My Yahoo, Google Reader etc.

RSS Extension released by Google

The RSS subscription extension which is released by Google Inc. is actually an extension for the web browser by Google i.e. Google Chrome in order to make the browser to read the RSS feeds that are present on many different web sites. You will have to install this extension just once and then you can try to open any feed link which you are aware of. Only then you would be able to see the difference between the previously viewable information and the new one. The subscription options that would be seen on the feed after you have installed the extension are iGoogle, Google Reader, Bloglines, My Yahoo etc. If you wish to add some of the other subscription options to these such as the page flakes, feed demond or the netvibes etc then you can easily click on the manage button which would be present at the bottom of the list of subscription option and can then add or remove the options also. The installation of the extension for Google Chrome is quite simple and can be done with great ease.

If you wish to get the red RSS button on Google Chrome bar then it is quite easy to get the extension from the web site. You would be able to get the IE and Firefox and would get the red color button which would be present on the address bar of Google Chrome. This extension had been developed by the developers of Google. It was asked from them that why they did not they give a native feed reader in the manner just like the other browsers provide when they were creating Google Chrome then they had replied that it is being tried by the company that there should be a default support for RSS as one native feature of Google Chrome but the company has decided for implementing this as an extension to Google Chrome instead. This was done by the company as it believes that only the UI features would be added for a great range of the users. Each of the users should be able to customize the browser according to their own needs with the help of these extensions and give users the thing which is not known much to them.

Ready to Go MeeGo?

Gone are the days when a laptop looked and weighed like a attaché case and a mobile phone had no other purpose than to make and receive calls. These days, ultra-portable netbooks are all the rage; as mobile phones can do everything from taking home videos, managing your calendar and finances, and even hook up to your TV for a home theater experience. That’s not even counting the tablets that have become part of everybody’s must-have list with the release of the Apple Ipad.

Just as these portable gadgets become more complex and multifunctional, so do the demands of a strong, fast, connective yet non-demanding operating platform become more pressing. With Android steadily dominating the mobile market, and Apple still fiercely secretive of its own, a new mobile platform has just rolled into the block. Meet MeeGo.

Power-Packed Portable Linux in a Pretty Package

MeeGo was first introduced in February 2010 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Intel and Nokia wowed the techno world by revealing that they’re joining forces to create the brand-new, Linux-based mobile operating platform. This new portable platform is a mixture of Intel’s mobile Linux system, Moblin, and Nokia’s Maemo platform, also based on Linux. The open source project promises to deliver cross-platform flexibility and availability because of its mini-architecture. This means that it can run on Intel and ARM chips, or as an API between Windows, Mac, or Symbian platforms. It also has potential to deliver in terms of computing power and speed, blending Moblin’s core software platform with the impeccable graphics delivered by Maemo’s Qt UI toolkit. Based on developers’ statements, the MeeGo is geared for use not just on mobile phones and netbooks but also in other handhelds like tablets PCs, mediaphones, and even in-vehicle screens.

MeeGo for Netbooks

MeeGo v.1.0 for Atom-based netbooks first rolled out in May 25. The operating platform, available for download at the project site (http://meego.com), was a visual tasty treat that came built-in with a synchronized calendar, social networking aggregator, Google Chrome/Chromium, email app, multimedia-playing music player, and full integration with the Intel apps store. All these are centered on the Myzone, which was MeeGo’s launchpad which reveals at a glance appointments, tasks, social networking updates and thumbnails of recently opened files and/or applications. Programs are organized into tabs for convenience. Under the hood, the system runs on kernel 2.6.33 of Linux, relies on DeviceKit and udev for interacting with hardware devices, has a modern 2D / 3D graphics stack including Kernel Mode Setting and non-root X, voice and data connectivity with Connman connection manager, Ofono telephony stack, BlueZ Bluetooth, and Universal Plug and Play. The stunning visuals were courtesy of the Qt 4.6, an upgrade from Maemo’s UI toolkit. Another brand-new development to this netbook OS is the use of the next-generation Linux BTRFS file system. To date, MeeGo 1.0 has been tested on a variety of netbooks, namely the Asus EeePC 901/1000H/1005HA/1008HA, EeePC 1005PE, Eeetop ET1602, Dell mini10v, Inspiron Mini 1012, Acer Aspire One D250/AO532-21S, Revo GN40, Aspire 5740-6025, Lenovo S10, MSI U130 /AE1900,HP mini 210-1044, and Toshiba NB302.

The First MeeGo Tablets Roll Out

This June at the widely anticipated Computex expo in Taiwan, MeeGo made waves again with the debut of the first MeeGo-based tablets. Running on a prototype of the MeeGo v.1.1, the platform was seen on a Qanta RedVale Tablet and the Wistron W1 and CZC P10T tablets. The Qanta Redvale and Wistron W1 both run on the new 1.5 GHz Intel Atom Moorestown, one of the fastest mobile processors to date. Although both Wistron tablets were kept behind glass displays, hands-on tests with the 10-inch resistive touchscreen Qanta Redvale held much promise. The interface was responsive, the layout customizable to grid or panel views, and comes with a variety of core applications that can be upgraded or updated through the built-in connection with the Intel app store. The Redvale tablet was able to play up to 720p video impressively, and can support five-finger multitouch and multi-touch pinch zooming of images. The tablet is not due for release until mid-2011, though, so there’s still plenty of room for improvement.

Verdict

Although pretty impressive, the MeeGo still has a long way to go before it topples Android or makes serious inroads in the mobile device market. With version 1.1 for handsets, netbooks and tablets set for release in October, though, we’ll just have to wait with bated breath for the new features and improvements the platform has in store.

Google Chrome Web store: A store of web applications

The most popular search engine provider Google announced a new service to uphold their internet browser ‘Google Chrome’. In the last week in ‘Google I/O conference’ declared the offer Google Chrome web store. Google Chrome OS is going be released very soon.

How Silverlight Works

Since the age old days when a web page on the Internet contained just static text and a few images if possible, the world has changed drastically. Now you can watch not only videos, but a lot dynamic and versatile content has been uploaded to make the browsing experience unique. Talking about the videos, the recent Beijing 2008 Olympic Games were telecasted on Internet using Microsoft’s new Silverlight technology.

So how does Silverlight work? What does it do? To answer all the questions we are here. Actually Silverlight is just an application similar to Adobe Flash, used to view videos and dynamic content. It is developed by Microsoft.

This is how it works:

• Firstly for the Silverlight to work the developer who requires it to create Silverlight applications needs to download its plug-in and player which are very small in size. For the viewer to browse any Silverlight format video, he needs to have a Silverlight plug-in in his browser. Basically Silverlight is a cross browser, which performs on various platforms for implementation of .NET Framework. It is also used to deliver exclusive, versatile and rich interactive applications for the Internet.

• The plug-in required is so small that it is just a fraction of seconds to complete the required download and this technology supports all the browsers namely, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, Safari. It is a combination of programming languages and selected tools to provide the developer a single platform for creating content for the web. Silverlight can also tweak with your JavaScript and ASP.NET APAX to easily incorporate into its platform.

• The major competitions that Microsoft is trying to beat using Silverlight is Adobe Flash and Sun Microsystems Java. The features of the Silverlight include a built-in codec support for playing VC-1 and WMV video, and MP3 and WMA audio within the browser. Supports’ live streaming too, while is also enabled to play rich content media on the Internet. Silverlight utilizes the highest quality video codec so get ready to experience Blu-Ray and HD content on live streaming.

• As it can operate on any browser and any operating system, it has spread it wings on the Apple Operating System too. Both Visual Studio and Microsoft.net framework will be allowed to work seamlessly at the same time on this cross platform. So the developers can work on hard core scripting platform while designers can design the content any time. The cost of licensing is also the lowest as one just needs an ISS on Windows Server to operate it seamlessly. One must have observed how simple it easy to download videos via YouTube as they operate in Adobe Flash format, but the same is not possible in Silverlight, as it offers copyrighting to.

The speed is lighting, the resolution is crystal clear, and overall it is a fantastic platform for the dynamic content on the Web. Again the biggest software maker in the world proved it is mettle by releasing Silverlight platform. It’s a young technology which is able to provide rich and energetic content on the web smartly, how soon it overtakes Flash is to be seen.

Chrome OS the new development by Google

Computer users all over the world are quite familiar with the Google Chrome, a cross platform web browser which was developed by Google. Along with the beta tag the version was first released in September 2nd, 2008 especially supporting the Microsoft Windows. This particular operating system was designed using the concept of Ubuntu Linux Distribution. According to the company’s Vice President Mr. Sundar Pichai it has concentrated in developing the latest Google Chrome hardware device which will be available in the market shortly.

Basic character of chrome

The most important feature of the Google Chrome is that it essentially uses the custom user interface. The operating system mainly concentrates on the browsing technique. However, with the emergence of the latest Google Chrome 5 versions the tradition character changes a lot. The Chrome 5 does not use the so called beta label like its previous versions. Moreover, this edition is supported by Linux, Mac OS X, and all versions of windows OS. The exclusive features of this operation system make it a perfect choice for the netbooks.

Competing with other tablet devices

Since the company highly focuses on the netbooks market, the most vital question piping in the minds of people is whether the Chrome operating system will successfully compete with the various tablet devices available in the market. As for example, the Andriod Tablet Prototypes suggests that the phone operating system provided by Google is not up to the mark in regard to the larger tablet form. The suggestion is given by the Andriod despite of the fact, that the company itself has many faults while developing the tablet devices. In this case, the best thing done by Google is to encourage the hardware constructors to use the operation system of Chrome instead using that of the Android for the said devices. To materialize this aim the company and its co partners are working hard in this matter. They have started working jointly on the platforms of Tegrs 2 support and on ARM.

Challenges to be faced by Google

To introduce a successful browser oriented operating system the company has to walk still a long way. Moreover, there are some challenges which are to be faced and resolved. One such challenge is the “Application Discoverability”. This is perhaps the biggest of all issues. The company is planning to set up store for helping the computer users for Web based application. This planning has been recently declared in the I/O conference of Google. The store will aim in providing assistance by offering people the details of purchasing different web software. The perfect integration of this store with that of Chrome OS, will help the users in installing the web application launchers in the new tab.

Some vital features of Chrome OS

  • The operating system supports printing over the internet with the help of the sophisticated feature Cloud Printing.
  • The company will now be able to compete with the Microsoft through this advanced OS.
  • It will be freely available like that of other Linux operating systems.
  • The free availability will facilitate the hardware developers to escape the cost of licensing.

The Google Chrome OS device will surely open a new horizon in the world of hardware market.
