Google will no longer accept Chrome extensions that mine cryptocurrency

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Starting today, Google’s Chrome Web Store will no longer accept extensions that mine cryptocurrency. The company says there had been a rise in “malicious extensions” over the past few months which appear to be useful, but are actually embedding hidden cryptocurrency mining scripts that run in the background without consent, consuming valuable computing resources. Google says existing extensions will be delisted from the Chrome Web Store in late June, though extensions with blockchain-related purposes “other than mining” will still be permitted.

Google had previously allowed cryptocurrency mining in extensions as long as it was the extension’s single purpose and the user was informed about the process. However, Google said that around 90…

Google bans cryptocurrency mining extensions in the Chrome Web Store

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


In an effort to prevent malicious sites from using your computer’s processing power to mine cryptocurrency without your knowledge, Google is blocking all extensions that include mining scripts in the Chrome Web Store. The danger with such scripts is that they can hog your system resources, and cause your computer to slow down and overheat. Plus, they’re easy to bake into browser extensions that may be designed and described as something innocuous and useful to you, like automatically muting tabs with sound. Google says it previously allowed extensions that mined currency, as long as they were designed specifically for the…

Google blocks crypto mining extensions from Chrome Web Store

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The Chrome Web Store is a hotbed of sketchy browser extensions, with seemingly little intervention from Google (except for the occasional crack-down). The company already takes down extensions that secretly mine cryptocurrency, but now it is going a step further. Starting today, all extensions that mine cryptocurrency will be barred from the Chrome Web Store.

The new ban even includes extensions where crypto mining is the primary feature. Existing mining extensions will be removed in late June, but the rule does not affect other blockchain-related tools.

This Chrome extension silences tabs before they annoy you

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


Google’s Chrome browser already lets you manually mute entire sites for good, and the next version will automatically prevent videos from autoplaying if they have sound. If you want more control, and to ensure that you never have an open tab taking over your speakers, you’ll want to try AutoMute. This handy extension simply mutes all tabs by default, so you won’t hear a peep out of Chrome under any circumstances. Of course, you can tweak its functionality by hopping into its options menu and setting it to run in whitelist mode (all sites are muted except the ones you…

Chrome OS will soon be able to mount SMB network shares natively

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Server Message Block, or SMB for short, is a popular way to share files over a local network. It has been built into Windows for decades, and the open-source Samba implementation is used on macOS and many Linux distributions. If you’ve connected to a computer or printer over a network before, you’ve probably used SMB.

In July of last year, Google released a Samba client for Android, allowing SMB network shares to be viewed in the Downloads/Files app.

New Chrome OS quick settings menu takes design cues from Android P

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The first developer preview of Android P was released earlier this month, and some of the most noticeable visual changes were to be found in the quick settings panel. Icons are now placed inside circles which are blue if active/on and greyed out if inactive/off. It’s too early to say for sure if these changes will remain the same in the final version, but if Chrome OS 67 is anything to go by, they may be pretty much final.

ASUS Chromebook Flip C302 long-term review: The laptop that brought me back to Chrome OS

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

I’ve never been a fan of buying expensive laptops, even once I could actually afford them. Just like with smartphones, there’s a certain point where the added features can’t justify the $ 1,000+ prices, unless you are doing heavy productivity or gaming. My first laptop was the ASUS Eee PC 1001PXD netbook, which I was pretty happy with at the time (now the 1024×600 screen sounds atrocious), but the casing eventually started to crack apart.

Chrome will soon finally support casting local files

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

If you’ve ever used Chrome’s casting functionality, you’ve likely come across one of its more frustrating shortcomings. While it works great for casting an online video, a tab, or even your entire screen, Chrome simply cannot cast a local audio or video file natively, forcing you to resort to using a third-party extension or standalone app. Fortunately, the Chrome team is currently experimenting with adding the ability to cast local files directly from within the browser, according to the well-known Googler and ‘Chromium evangelist,’ François Beaufort.
