Google Chrome is finally fixing the most annoying thing about browsing the web

When Google Chrome finally added a speaker symbol to open tabs that were playing music or other types of audio, the Internet rejoiced. But as great as this feature was, it didn’t solve all of our Chrome frustrations.

If you happen to be one of those people who have multiple tabs and windows open when browsing the web, sometimes searching for that lone and mysterious tab with the speaker icon can itself be frustrating. Thankfully, Google has now come up with a way to solve this nuisance once and for all.

Brilliant free app lets you watch Netflix remotely with your friends

With the rise of Netflix and the advent of binge watching, watching TV has arguably become something of a solitary affair. That’s all well and good, but if you’d like to be even just a tad more social while otherwise camping out on your couch and watching Netflix alone, we’ve got you covered.

Showgoers is a nifty little Chrome extension which lets friends watch the same Netflix programming in real time. The extension itself is rather simple insofar as it links up user Netflix accounts and lets viewers send out invitations to friends asking them to join a stream. All in all, Showgoers is a great way to have a virtual viewing party when people can’t otherwise get together.

You might be ruining your Netflix streams without even knowing it – here’s a simple fix

Netflix just released the third season of Orange Is the New Black, and regardless of whether you’ve already binge watched it already or not, chances are some people will be watching it the wrong way on their computers. If you use Google’s Chrome browser to stream Netflix on a Windows or Mac PC, you’re probably limiting your viewing experience to 720p (HD) rather than 1080p (Full HD).
