Blogger Dynamic Views for Google Chrome lets you toggle blog designs while browsing

Google's Blogger service has launched a new extension for Google's Chrome browser today, called Blogger Dynamic Views. As its name implies, this is related to last week's unveiling of five new HTML5-based Dynamic Views for Blogger. The extension adds an orange Blogger icon in your address bar when you're visiting a Blogger blog. If you click on the orange icon, you'll get a list of the five afo...

Google's Blogger platform adds five new HTML5 Dynamic Views

Google, as part of its ongoing and much-needed overhaul of its popular Blogger platform, has just enabled five dynamic, HTML5ish, AJAXy 'Dynamic Views'. There's a video introducing the new layouts after the break. The five new views provide fresh and interesting ways to explore your favorite Blogger blogs. The Mosaic view, for example, creates a wall of thumbnails -- click one, and it zooms ...

Flickr adds to sharing options, now easier to share photos across the Web

It sure is nice to see some new developer action over at Flickr. The relatively slow-moving photo-sharing service has just announced a new sharing update, which consists of several new and easy ways to embed or link to your photos: Share from Photo page: There's a new sharing option on each and every photo page. When logged off, the button shows only Facebook and Twitter options. But once...

Google's Blogger platform gets a new-look Dashboard and Post Editor

Blogger, Google's popular blogging platform, is showing off a sneak peek at the next generation of its user interface. The Official Google Blog has screenshots of upcoming revamps to Blogger's Dashboard and Post Editor. There's also a video (after the break) that shows off the progress Blogger made in 2010 -- including improved stats, spam filtering, Web fonts, a template designer and zero down...

Yahoo shuts down MyBlogLog, a $10 mil purchase you never heard of

In the grand scheme of things, $10 million isn't a ton of money for a big company like Yahoo! to spend acquiring another company. Still, for an embattled Yahoo!, shutting down MyBlogLog is another sad trombone in its symphony of missteps. MyBlogLog was a service which allowed bloggers to create a community for their sites. The shutdown was called out in the famous "sunsetting" slideshow in late...

Blogger Android App finally emerges, lets you publish on the move

Android, at long last, has an official Blogger app that lets you publish posts and photos from your smartphone. You can grab the app from the Web-based Android Market. The app is fairly rudimentary, letting you compose new blog posts, and attach photos; but that's about it. With the app installed Blogger joins the 'share' menu, meaning you can quickly post photos to your blog. You can also see ...

Google adds 35 more Web fonts to Blogger

Web fonts have been available to Blogger users since late last year, when Google introduced 32 ready-to-use typefaces to spice up your blog's design. Now, Google has more than doubled that number -- bringing the total to a whopping 77 fonts, all of which render nicely in just about any Web browser. No, they don't work in IE6. You'll find the new fonts in the Blogger Template Designer behind th...

Google Apps accounts finally get full range of Google services

As a long-time Google Apps user, I was overjoyed when I could finally start using Google Reader with my Apps account a few months ago. And now, Google has announced that all Google services are to become available for Google Apps users over the coming months. After the jump you can watch a beautiful video explaining the change, but in a nutshell, you will now be able to access over 60 Google serv...

Posterous can now import from Blogger: let the exodus begin!

Posterous, continuing its 15-ways-to-switch-in-15-days tirade, has today enabled its Blogger importer. Posterous's vice president of marketing, while talking to Spanish tech blog Genbeta [translated], says that this importer in specific is one of the big ones: "This launch is very important to us because Blogger has been one of the most requested services by our users, especially outside the U...

GoogleCL: Your command line might get more love now

With all of the projects that Google's been working on lately, it's easy to forget that not everything has to have a glossy UI to function well. Sometimes a service can function more efficiently with the entire visual element stripped from it, and that's exactly what Google's allowed the geeks among us to do. Users can now interact with several of the most popular Google services via command line...

Google's Blogger gets a ridiculously easy template editor

Plenty of free blog services come with a selection of templates, but Google has decided to take the next step with Blogger. The popular blogging site now allows you to dress up its templates with colors and images of your choice by using a simple graphical editor. Blogger Template Designer includes fifteen templates, with one, two, and three column layouts for each. Besides adding colors and b...

Google discontinuing FTP support for Blogger blogs

Love it or hate it, Blogger was the tool that really brought blogging into the mainstream. Once upon a time, the only way to have your blog hosted on your own domain was to use Blogger as the content management system, but then have it use FTP to push HTML pages to your web host. Fast forward to 2010, and it turns out that only half of one percent of Blogger's users are using Blogger's FTP upload...

After the Deadline grammar, spell check addon for Firefox is a writer's best friend

After the Deadline has been mentioned before here on Download Squad. In September of 2009, Automattic (the company behind WordPress) acquired ATD and promptly integrated it into their wildly popular blogging platform. If you do any writing anywhere on the web and you're using Firefox, you'll be glad to know that the After the Deadline add-on has hit version 1.0 and should be shedding Mozilla's ...

Google makes it easier to monetize blogs with Amazon integration

Google owns the popular Blogger service that lets anyone create and start publishing a blog in a few minutes. Google also owns the popular web-based advertising system, AdSense. So it's hardly surprising that Blogger has a "Monetize" tab that makes it easy for users to sign up for an AdSense account and start running ads on their web pages. What's a bit more surprising is that this week Google ro...

Blogger adds ... more after the jump

In "Wait, they really didn't already have that?" news, Google's publishing platform, Blogger, now supports jump breaks in posts. Users have been splitting their posts by hand for a while now, so no one can blame you if you thought it was already a supported feature. Besides, you've seen this before on practically every other blogging platform - heck, I remember LiveJournal having jump breaks 10 ye...
