Have Google lost the plot? More outages…
Struggling with the vast array of Google‘s suite of SaaS products is complicated enough.
Their habit, though, of making changes that seem I’ll thought out or counter productive isbecoming more and more difficult to understand.
Two Chrome updates in a matter of days causing huge amount of data to be downloaded across corporate networks, primarily due to the dynamic URLs that make caching the files impossible.
Now we have FOUR consecutive days of disruption on their primary product, Gmail.
And a lacK of options too! Why can’t I disable the Gmail Flash attachment uploader in Chrome? I can in IE8!
¿What is going on?
Just got ther latest version of Chrome, Googles “everywhere” browser.
Version 14.0.835.163 m appears to support the “Automatically detect settings” option in Windows.
This means that the browser behaves in the corporate envrinment without any silly workarounds, like forcing users to enter the path to the Proxy.Pac or entering the proxies manually.
This is a feature that just simply should have been in Chrome from day one but is a nice addition after so many iterations.
Wikipedia have feature changes as:
- Native Client (NaCl) enabled for apps in the Chrome Web Store.
- Web Audio API.
- Additional Mac OS X Lion feature support.
- Sync Encryption for all data.
- Print Preview on Mac.
- Experimental Web Request extension API.
- Experimental Content Settings extension API.
- DNSSEC validation of HTTPS sites.
So this is new.
