The new tab window on Chrome for Android helps you get more from your web browsing experience

If there's one thing I love about Chrome, Google's web browser, it's that it can provide pretty seamless transitions between my desktop and mobile web browsing experiences.

I think that's pretty darn cool!

The new tab window is where the fun all starts on Chrome for mobile devices. Not only can you access pages you have open on your desktop, but you can also get pretty easy access to the pages you visit most and your bookmarks from here.

What is Google Wallet and why should I care?

116

The basics behind Google's digital wallet

Google Wallet has been around for a few years now, but most American users couldn't really use it before last November when Kit Kat landed and brought a new method for mobile payments and a method to try and prevent carriers from blocking the app.

But if you think Google Wallet's just for tap-and-pay, you're sadly mistaken. There's a lot more to Google Wallet, and there's something for everyone here.
