We talk about a ton of stuff here at Chrome Unboxed. From Chromebooks to Chromecast to Google Assistant, the world of Chrome OS is pretty far-reaching. We save our News section for the things that are breaking news to our readers.
The Chrome browser is constantly evolving and part of that evolutions is the ongoing hardening of security through new features as well as patching existing vulnerabilities. Occasionally, the aforementioned vulnerabilities are critical enough to require immediate action from developers. One such security flaw was recently discovered in the Chrome browser. Uncovered by the team at […]
Thunderbolt 3 is a staple addition to many devices outside the Chrome OS world. Macbooks and Windows devices come with it in many of the higher-end models and peripheral manufacturers have created a small ecosystem of fantastic devices that fully leverage the USB-C standard in a wide variety of ways. Up to this point, there’s […]
Google is rolling out an update to the account switch UI on the web for all its services. Whether logged into Google Docs, Gmail, Google.com or any other Google property, you can click on your avatar and see a new, more-Google-y fly-out menu.
The latest update of the Chrome browser for Windows has been a bit of a mess as users have been battling “Aw, Snap!” crashes due to outdated third-party code not being compatible with Chrome’s sandboxing process.

USI (Universal Stylus Initiative) devices are most certainly an emerging tech. While there are some big-name players on board with the cross-device technology, finding computers the feature USI compatibility is still a tough task to take on.

With last week’s release of Chrome 78 for Desktop, a growing number of users have been reporting an issue that is causing browser-wide “Aw, Snap!” errors in Chrome.

Google and Amazon have had a long, sordid love affair when it comes to sharing product spaces. Whether it’s petty battles surrounding Amazon’s products having access to YouTube, Amazon’s streaming platforms lacking Chromecast support or Google’s Home products being forbidden in Amazon’s storefronts, the two companies have spent years doing the tango at the expense […]
Just a couple days after Google’s hardware event in New York wrapped up last week, our very own Pixelbook Go showed up in the office and I’ve been using it off and on ever since. As timing would have it, I’m in the middle of 3 other reviews right now, so I’m splitting time between […]
We wrote about some strange additions and flags not long ago that caused us to believe the Chrome OS devs were up to some new navigation tricks for Chrome OS tablet mode.
