In Pictures: 8 new features in Chrome (desktop or mobile)

Here are several significant features that have been added recently to the various versions of Chrome

FEATURE: App launcher ADDED TO: Chrome Beta for Windows

Here’s a feature that was brought over from Chrome OS, and implemented into the Windows version of Chrome Beta. As you install a Chrome packaged app (like CIRC or Text Drive) and allow the Chrome app launcher to be installed, a 3-by-3 grid icon will appear on the Windows Taskbar. Clicking this icon will open a small panel that lists shortcut icons of all the packaged apps and web apps you have installed on Chrome. Your Chrome apps will no longer appear in a new tab, but will be listed in this app launcher on the Windows Taskbar.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
