    I switched to Dolphin awhile back and am loving it. Hoping to see a comp review between the two before I switch back. I know, pretty lazy considering it's already installed but dolphin is my defualt browser for everything.

    well not to beat a dead horse again BUT after the Chrome update 24 hours ago, I have no wifi connection on my N4, prior to that I have had NO issues with wifi connectivity while many others had problems. I am not sure if it was just "my time" with this wifi issue but the timing of this is surely strange. Calling Google customer support now.


    UPDATE: called google cs, after going through all the trouble shooting with the rep they are sending me a new N4.......the rep said he has heard of the issues with wifi connectivity. Hopefully the new phone will work out, should have it by tuesday, until then i'll have to watch my Tmobile data usage !!!!!

    Has anyone figured out a shortcut for pausing the background audio in Chrome? I love being able to listen to reverbnation and soundcloud, but I can't pause the audio without first unlocking the phone, going to chrome, then selecting the correct tab, then pressing pause. Bookmarking does not solve the issue. Maybe someone can recommend a widget that pauses streaming audio.

    I'm not paranoid, but the new camera permission seems pretty shady, no? Can use it at any time. It's certainly much faster (and I didn't think it was slow before...)

    taken from whats new
    "Note: This version requests two new permissions, Camera and Modify Audio Settings, to support WebRTC, an experimental feature under development."
