I am running W7 Ultimate 32 bit. I have been using Chrome as my browser of choice until an update resulted in it coming up with the message 'Google Chrome has stopped working'. According to Google they are working on a solution to this, as the error message alone isn't enough to determine the problem. I created some logs following their instructions but the site to upload them to doesn't seem to exist anymore. However, I have now started getting the '<> has stopped working' message from some other applications as well. Examples are Nero and IE8. Could this be …

Hi, It is possible to remove (expire) cross subdomain cookies using javascript? For example, Facebook.com creates these cookies in the ".facebook.com" domain:[IMG]http://www.datermine.com/img/MStandaloneImage/full/agpkYXRlcnJtaW5lchgLEhBNU3RhbmRhbG9uZUltYWdlGIn9DQw/[/IMG] I'm creating a chrome extension with a content script that can run javascript within a page in the browser, typically in the 'www' subdomain and I'd like to be able to expire them using javascript. Of note: + I'm able to retrieve them via the document.cookie object + I'm able to create and expire cookies on the [url]www.facebook.com[/url] domain Thanks, George

At the top of my classic asp page, I have a the following code to select the relevant stylesheet depending on which browser is being used: - [CODE]<!--[if IE 6]><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../styles/main-ie6.css" /><![endif]--> <!--[if gt IE 6]><link href="../styles/main.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> <!--[else]><link href="../styles/main.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" /><![endif]-->[/CODE] The problem is that when the site is loaded in Google Chrome, no stylesheet is picked up. Does anyone know how to get round this? Many TIA

The MIX10 Microsoft Developer Conference is always good for a laugh or two, but just who was rolling on the floor after the IE9 preview code was revealed? Certainly Microsoft is deadly serious about Internet Explorer: The Next Generation. So serious that it has apparently created a new development team dedicated to the project which promises to be less a case of feature creep and more a matter of proving that it is truly committed to the whole IE browser brand in the face of stiff, and innovative, competition from both Mozilla and perhaps especially Google in the form of …

Google has today launched a new Beta version of the [URL="http://www.itpro.co.uk/blogs/daveyw/2009/03/22/google-chrome-stands-alone-at-pwn2own/"]Chrome browser[/URL], adding brand new privacy controls into the mix.

The 'So what...' award of the year has to go to Microsoft which has announced that as of this year they'll be able to choose which browser they use. According to reports on the [URL="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8524019.stm"]BBC[/URL], they'll be able to download and upgrade/crossgrade to Firefox, Chrome, whatever they want. Well...duh. This has to be the most substance-free announcement I've ever seen. I'm sure Microsoft had to install an installer for the terminally dim or face further action - but I installed Firefox, Chrome and a load of alternatives a while ago. It's easy, you just download and install by going to …

OK, so it might not be quite as talked about as the mythical [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story245295.html"]Apple iTablet[/URL], but the [URL="http://www.computerweekly.com/Articles/2009/11/23/239414/Google-Chrome-OS-A-threat-to-Windows-7.htm"]Google Chrome[/URL] OS-based netbook is also creating quite a stir.

Hi, I am using Google Chrome. I am trying to download an add-on so that I can get rid of ads. I understand that you need to put --enable extensions- after the other info in the Target thingy. Unfortunately, when I put the --enable-extensions in the target, I still get the message that says "Extensions are not enabled." How can I get rid of this message forever, and how can I download extensions? Thank you!

I hope that someone can help me with this. We have a computer where we can't get any of the installed browsers to work: IE, Firefox, Chrome.

So Google reckons that it can provide [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/26281/53/"]the perfect operating system[/URL] in Chrome, even to the point where according to Google's Engineering Director, Linus Upson, it will herald the end of malware. That's what he went [URL="http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/07/introducing-google-chrome-os.html"]on the record[/URL] to say, promising that Google was "completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates." Which could just end up being one of those 'why did I say that' moments that go down in software development folklore. Not least because as soon as you say something is 100 …

Yesterday, [URL="http://www.google.com"]Google[/URL] [URL="http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/07/introducing-google-chrome-os.html"]announced[/URL] that they are entering the Netbook operating system market with the Google Chrome OS--a Linux-based, web-oriented effort. On the surface, I see this as yet another ploy to take my Netbook from me. No, Google won't realize any direct profits from taking over my little blue Netbook but it's another attempt at making me remove Windows from it once and for all. Now, why would they want me to do [I]that[/I]? Maybe I can answer that question with the following list: 1. Google Chrome 2. Google Docs 3. Google Calendar 4. Google Apps 5. Google Books 6. …

[URL="http://www.google.com"]Google[/URL] has confirmed that it is working on an operating system called [URL="http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/07/introducing-google-chrome-os.html"]Chrome[/URL]. It will be a rival to [URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]Microsoft[/URL] Windows, a zillion flavours of [URL="http://www.distrowatch.com"]Linux[/URL], the [URL="http://www.apple.com/macosx/"]Apple[/URL] operating system and any other minority systems of which you might be aware. A lot has been said across the web about how this will affect Microsoft's market share. My own view is we'll see. An equal amount has been said about how damaging this will be to Linux in the netbook market. That seems likely. It could push the Mac even further into the minority system ghetto. None of this even …

I write a great deal about Google mostly because it is always trying new things and putting them out there for free for the world to try. The tools are easy to access and use from wherever you are--any device with a browser and an internet connection--and you can't beat the single-sign on across the tool kit, but for all it has going for it, Google has a major trust issue. Every time I write about Google the comments always include people who won't trust Google with their content ever. Just last Fall, in fact, Richard Stallman suggested that cloud …

Bravo to Google for daring to compete in the two-party system of the world's desktop browser market. And kudos for bucking the status quo to design a "modern platform for Web pages and applications," as its [release statement](http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/why.html?hl=en) read. But there's also skepticism out there about Google's bravado, and about its motives for the whole browser project. "Google wants to control the way people do business on the Internet, and the way to do that is to control how they get there," said Gwyn Fisher, CTO of [Klocwork](http://www.klocwork.com/) which makes code analysis tools. While many of today's news reports say …

Wasting little time coming out of the long US Labor Day weekend, Google released a shiny new browser aptly called [URL="http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2008/09/fresh-take-on-browser.html"]Chrome[/URL]. Why on earth would the world need another browser at this point in the history of the internet is unclear, especially another open source entry, but one thing is crystal clear, Google took a direct shot at the bow of Microsoft and Apple yesterday and [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry2503.html"]the battle for world domination [/URL]continues unabated. Whether the market will bear yet another browser is an open question, but it seems that for Google, this is more than a browser war, it's a …

Google's new venture will go public as most of you are reading this (assuming 'most of you' means our American readers, who I assume are a substantial majority). Google is going to [URL="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7593106.stm"]release a browser.[/URL] It's called Chrome and it's going to be geared towards the things we all want to do with our Internet systems - videos, downloads, you know the sort of thing. Except...kind of...video already works on my system (particularly now that the Internet's working on it again, sprung back to life this morning with no real expectation, I have broadband again, whoopdedoo) and so does audio. …
