Jigsaw ‘Saw’ Chrome Vs. Internet Explorer Prank

jigsaw-internet-explorer-prank.jpg This is the Windows desktop Redditor Croft1342 came back to after having a friend repair his computer. Apparently a single one of the Chrome icons is actually Chrome, and the rest are all Internet Explorer. No word if Croft knew how to solve the riddle without going through each icon individually, but if Jigsaw deleted all my p0rn I would hunt that f***er down, tear his head off, and use it to smash his tricycle. Thanks to lilco, who would like to think somebody smart enough to open a Reddit account would also know how to pull a new Chrome icon to the desktop, but you never know.

Although Cuban internet users have been able to access Chrome through unofficial channels, they’ll now be able to download the web browser directly from google.com.cu.

This week’s announcement comes after Google Chairman Eric Schmidt and a delegation of web activists visited Cuba in June, pushing for a free and open internet. The government of Raúl Castro has inched toward greater web access in recent months, with new fiber-optic connections…

Google to fix Chrome for Windows bug that drains laptop batteries

Google is promising to fix a bug in Chrome for Windows that has been draining laptop batteries for years. The problem was first reported in 2010, but a recent investigation by Forbes has bumped the issue to the top of Google’s Chrome bug report list. Chrome’s battery drain problem affects Windows users as Google sets a parameter for processor-intensive tasks much lower than Microsoft recommends. The result means laptop processors are waking up far more often than they should when Chrome is open on Windows and a webpage is idle. Internet Explorer and Firefox don’t exhibit the same battery drain problem.

Google confirmed the issue to PC World, and an engineer has been assigned internally to address the problem. The promise of a fix…
