A few days ago Google celebrated its 11-th birthday. I think it’s a good reason to dedicate my September’s News post to Google innovations. So, this September:
Google Chrome version 3.0 Final released a year after this browser’s birthday. New stable release is claimed to be significantly faster, supports HTML5, has new better Tab page and of course great Chrome Themes. But there is still no version for Mac. Let’s wait.
One more invention of search giant was delivered this month – Google Fast Flip. Controversial yet worth trying news reader that presents news and articles just like in printed magazine. Mobile version of Fast Flip is available as well. As for me, Fast Flip’s interface is not perfect yet, but it does its main job – browsing news becomes faster.
An old idea in the new implementation – Google Sidewiki, an add-on for Firefox and Internet Explorer which lets users to discuss web pages from browser sidebar. Sidewiki adds button to Google Toolbar and looks like a sidebar when active. It offers you to add your opinion about web pages you visit. When you highlight text on a page, a little icon appears on the left side. Click it to open sidebar and post your entry about the page.
Happy Birthday Google! We’re waiting for your new achievements.
