Back in September, we saw how Google had launched a $105 Android One smartphone in India and today we’re going to take a look at some more Google news. Google improves Chrome with an experimental muting feature and it also triples the reward given out to people who find bugs in its software.
Google Improves Chrome
Google is actively seeking to make its successful web browser even more successful and even better than it already is. Yesterday it was announced that Google is adding an experimental feature that is going to mute any sound that is automatically playing when a new tab is opened. You know how awful it can be to open up a new tab and be bombarded by sounds that you want to silence as soon as possible?
You know how you see an icon of a speaker when a tab starts playing a clip or a sound bite? Well, Chrome will make that icon clickable! You can copy this into your browser and hit enter. Restart your browser and it should be good to go!
Find a Bug, Get Paid!
Google improves Chrome by upping the payouts for people who find bugs in their software. Up until recently, they paid around $500 and from now on, you can get as much as $5,000 depending on how big of a bug you found.
Aside from getting some pretty penny, Google will also submit you into their Wall of Fame, so you can hang out with others who have helped the tech giant improve their security. Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it?
