    Rakowski uses 8 different computers regularly. That's unusual, but it is the direction we're all headed in the future. Mobile phones and tablets count. So here we have the signin demo with a Chromebook. "All my settins start coming down from the cloud."
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:16:27 PM
    Showing open tab syncing
  • James Martin 6/28/2012 5:16:53 PM

    Tab syncing is relatively new to Chrome, but it's been around for at least a few months.

    "Tasty salted pig parts" on screen
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:17:27 PM
    He's showing us his work browser tabs: the build status of Chrome. The tree is green! (that means the Chrome developers aren't adding crash-inducing new updates to the browser.)

    Brian's looking up a Boccalone

    Now showing opening a tab from a computer on Chrome for Android. That landed in Chrome 19, six weeks ago.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:18:55 PM
    Showing off a Nexus 7 with Chrome as the default browser.
  • James Martin 6/28/2012 5:19:18 PM
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:19:31 PM
    Synced browsing history, so a URL he typed on his computer arrives as soon as he types on his phone. And the page preloads in the background, too.
  • James Martin 6/28/2012 5:19:37 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:19:52 PM
    Just showed off tab syncing, which uses Chrome's pre-loading so that you don't have to wait for pages you've already opened on other computers
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:20:10 PM
    Sync reaches open tabs, bookmarks, etc. "But there's one more thing."
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:20:30 PM
    Building up to something, a yellow Chrome logo on the screen. Chrome for iOS
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:20:38 PM
    Use Chrome on your iPhone
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:20:45 PM
    Later today in the App Store
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:20:46 PM
    Later today rolling out in the app store, but sneak preview..

    Chrome on iPhone

  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:21:30 PM
    Some weird color issues going on in the projector, it's got a red shift going on
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:21:42 PM
    This is hard to do, because Apple won't let others use any other browser engines except its own on iOS. Fortunately for Google, the Chrome and Safari browser engines are closely related variants of the WebKit browser engine.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:21:46 PM
    Both iPad and iPhone
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:21:48 PM
    iPad version, too.
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:22:03 PM
    "Silky smooth." Tabs on top just like Nexus 7.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:22:29 PM
    Syncing, as well so you can access other devices
  • James Martin 6/28/2012 5:22:34 PM

    Chrome on iPad

  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:22:39 PM
    Tab overflow solution: The tabs don't get narrower, but you slide the tab bar left and right.
  • James Martin 6/28/2012 5:22:57 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:22:59 PM
    Curious about how they achieved Chrome-like speeds on iOS without their JS engine.
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:23:38 PM
    If Google is willing to put its Chrome brand on a different OS that doesn't permit Google's browser engine, this gives Google a way to reach Windows RT, too. But in that case it would be using Microsoft's Trident browser engine.
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:23:49 PM
    Showing Password Manager for syncing credentials, and now Incognito on iOS
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:24:07 PM
    One Chrome to rule them all...?
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:24:30 PM
    "I hope you'll find using Incognito on a touch device is a great experience." (awkward moment of silence in the audience as people mentally translate "incognito mode" to "porn mode.")
  • James Martin 6/28/2012 5:24:36 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/28/2012 5:24:50 PM
    Sindar back on stage, talking cloud and Web apps
  • CALOi 6/28/2012 5:24:57 PM
    Those page pre-loading could kill your data plan pretty fast.
  • stephen.shankland 6/28/2012 5:25:00 PM
    Background: Incognito mode is for browsing without leaving traces of your browsing history on your computer.
