An Early Look at Chrome’s Extensions System [Extensions]

Take a peek at what’s coming, presumably very soon, in these development screenshots. The Download Squad blog was the first to notice the new new thing in Chrome—namely, a jigsaw-like page corner in Chrome’s new tab page, next to a message at the bottom that reads “New!

Build a Water-Powered Bottle Rocket [Fun]

Build a Water-Powered Bottle Rocket [Fun]
