Google and Samsung launched Samsung Series 3 ChromeBox, If you don't know what is ChromeBox! It's a Mac mini-like computer to which buyers attach keyboard, mouse and monitor. The idea isn't novel: Users keep their existing peripherals while upgrading hardware and migrating to a spanking new operating system. For anyone looking to get off the OS X or Windows train, Chromebox proves to be an affordable alternative running Google's browser-boasting, cloud-connected Linux-based OS.
Samsung Series 3 Chromebox joins Samsung's second-generation Chromebook, the Series 5 500, also launched today, and it's a bargain by comparison $329.99 or $449.99 for WiFi-only laptop and $549 for 3G combo.
The chromebox also sports a faster processor, 1.9GHz vs 1.3GHz for Chromebook. The cloud-computing device, now with loads of local functionality and storage, is well-suited for educational institutions and small businesses. Buy ChromeBox

Chrome for Android was released with No Flash support and will Not run Flash Player, the popular software that Apple has banned, Adobe confirmed yesterday that it will not bring it to the Android Chrome browser.
The acknowledgment was no surprise as last November, Adobe announced that it will be abandoning development of Flash for mobile browsers. However, The stock Android ICS browser included with the operating system does support Flash.
Adobe Official announcement on its blog:
"Today Google introduced Chrome for Android Beta. As we announced last November, Adobe is no longer developing Flash Player for mobile browsers, and thus Chrome for Android Beta does not support Flash content. Flash Player continues to be supported within the current Android browser."
Google recently launched Chrome for Android Beta for Android smartphones and tablets running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The new mobile browser includes many features that make Chrome so popular on the PC including speed, simple design, bookmark and open tabs sync, and autocomplete suggestions. But Google mobile Chrome is not all good news, there are also a few letdowns for people who love Adobe Flash, Chrome extensions or are part of the 99 percent.
No Flash Support!
Even though Android supports the mobile version of Flash Player, Chrome for Android did not ship with Adobe plug-in unlike its desktop counterpart. Shortly after the new mobile browser was released, Adobe said it would not be supporting Chrome for Android. Adobe in November announced it would no longer be developing Flash Player for mobile devices at all and would instead focus on pushing HTML 5 standards for mobile browsers.
Support Android ICS 4.0 only!
Chrome for Android is currently only available for Android 4.0. That effectively means you can only get it if you own a Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Xoom or Asus Transformer Prime. Ice Cream Sandwich updates to Gingerbread and Honeycomb devices are slated for rollout later this year.

Google just launched a New Desktop version of the Chrome browser, Chrome 17, Among the new features over the previous stable version include the ability to prerender pages to speed up your browsing. Now, when you type a URL in the Omnibox, Chrome will automatically start Pre-rendering the website it thinks you are mostly likely to open, So when you hit Enter the page will open instantaneously in ZERO time.
Another new feature is the ability to check files to see if they are malicious. When you download an executable file such as (.exe) or (.msi) Google Chrome will try to match the file with its online database to see if it is genuine. Also Chrome will check with Google for the websites history and if the site is known to provide malicious content then it will cancel the download automatically.
Google has just updated Chrome Beta to version 18 after Chrome 17 gone final yesterday. Its headline new feature is improved 2D graphics performance in HTML5 and a software rasterizer to enable older machines to display content rendered using newer unsupported technologies (by these old Machines) such as WebGL.
Chrome 18 Beta also sees improvements to the PDF plug-in and Printing, plus fixes a number of issues such as full-screen performance under Windows and startup issues in Red Hat Enterprise 6.
Most Windows and Mac users should start to see major performance improvements from certain web apps and websites thanks to support for GPU-accelerated rendering for 2D Canvas content. Because of the wide variety of hardware configurations out there, the Chromium development team has taken a conservative approach to this new technology, enabling just a few features and keen to hear feedback from anyone who encounters performance issues as a result of the tweaks. To see what new features are supported by your system, type chrome://gpu/ into the URL bar.

It appears that Google does indeed want to bring Chrome to your iOS devices, and they demonstrated what they expect will be their killer feature the ability to sync across devices. They demonstrated both iPhones and iPad accessing the pages open on other devices, and even signing in to The New York Times on an iPad, despite it being the first time the demo had been run on that unit.
A patent filed for in 2010 and recently granted to Google suggests one hardware concept they might be considering to pull it off. The patent covers numerous ways to design a hybrid tablet and notebook that would feature a touch-sensitive virtual keyboard and touchpad on a second screen.
The device could shift between tablet and notebook mode easily. This Google device may also the first to be merging Chrome OS with Android. Here is Google Official Patent Statement:
"The computing device could also be configured to operate based on one or more platforms (e.g., one or more similar or different platforms) that could include one or more types of hardware, software, firmware, operating systems and runtime libraries."
What other two operating systems do you think Google would want to put on a device? For over two years now Google has been working on hybrid hardware that can also run hybrid software, allowing the same machine to run different firmware operating systems.

In the updates, Google has recently Enabled GPU-accelerated video decoding for Google Chrome on Windows. Dedicated graphics chips draw far less power than a computer's CPU, so using GPU-accelerated video decoding while watching videos can increase battery life significantly.
After testing, it was proved that the battery lasted 25% longer when GPU-accelerated video decoding was enabled.
So, If you are using Chrome on windows you will experience longer battery life so your laptop don't get cut off while watching their favorite YouTube video on repeat.
