After finding out how widespread the HeartBleed security issue is, it only made sense to find a Chrome extension to help the situation. There are a number of good ones but we chose ChromeBleed because it also works in Google(s goog) searches, showing which sites may still have server vulnerabilities before you even visit them. Meanwhile, the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook is looking good in tablet mode while Microsoft(s msft) ended its Scroogled campaign just in time to add Office Online app shortcuts to the Chrome Web Store.
Join us for this week’s podcast as we discuss those topics as well as some great new features in Chrome Beta for Android and new Chromecast apps here now and coming soon.
