Views.fm Dropbox viewer offers slick galleries, and adds commenting

Sharing an entire Dropbox folder can be a bit of a pain, unless it's your Public folder. Plus, Dropbox only natively displays photo galleries for your Photos folder. What's a sharing addict to do? Try Views.fm, a Dropbox viewer that lets you share any folder publicly or with selected friends, and adds great-looking galleries and comments to boot. Views.fm connects to Dropbox, and then lets...

Instagrid is an easy way to create a gallery of your Instagram photos

Looking for a clean, simple way to display and share your Instagram photos as a gallery? Check out Instagrid, a new Web app that makes the process about as painless as it can be. Just create an account, plug in your Instagram account details, and starting choosing photos. Photos can be viewed in a single-column display at full size, or as a neatly laid-out array of thumbnails. Clicking a...

Avast 6 beta buffs up free antivirus with better sandboxing, new Web protection

It may have taken a long time for Avast to move from version 4 to 5, but that's not going to be the case with Avast 6. A beta version has been made available for download, and there are plenty of new features that will make Avast 6 a worthy antivirus program for Windows. Two technologies which were introduced in paid editions of Avast 5 -- the Web Script Shield and site blocking -- have been...

Songbird app for Android goes beta, we go hands-on

Using Songbird on your desktop or laptop to listen to your cavernous collection of digital music? Good news -- the Songbird team has been working in "super seekrit" (their words, not ours) on bringing you a pocket-sized version for your Android device. Even better, they've announced the availability of the first public beta of Songbird for Android -- and we took it for a spin. Here's the quick...

Firefox 4 beta 3 for Android hands on: Mozilla browser hits the Market

Mozilla has released a new beta of Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo to keep the mobile browser in step with its desktop cousin, and it packs a number of important improvements. Perhaps the most noticeable one on Android is that you can now find Firefox in the Market, meaning future updates will be a smoother process -- just make sure you uninstall any previous beta versions before downloading from...

Chrome OS: a look at Google's almost-ready operating system

With Google's new 'smartbook' Chrome OS almost ready for prime time, we decided to build a copy of Chromium OS ourselves and give it the once-over. Looking through the gallery, you will notice that Chromium OS really is just a Chrome browser with a new Settings menu.There actually seem to be less features than when Lee last had a look -- gone is the Picasa integration, and Gmail lost its cool...

Min.us is a very minimal HTML5 photo sharing and gallery creation tool

Min.us does one thing, and it does it surprisingly well: it shares images. Via the magic of HTML5 -- as long as you're using Firefox 3.6, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer 9 -- you can simply drag and drop images into Min.us. Other than watch your gallery take shape (here's mine), there isn't much else you can do. You can rename your gallery and change the order of the images ... but that's...

A gallery of high-res Windows Phone 7 app screenshots

While I wasn't one of the handful of Chosen Ones to attend the Windows Phone 7 launch in London yesterday, I have been lucky enough to get my hands on some lovely screenshots of WP7 apps. So far, most major websites have only run photos-of-handsets, complete with skewed angles and glaring reflections. With these images, you can see what the interface of some big-name apps really look like --...

A photo tour of the Google campus in Mountain View, California

Next up, after my tour of the Mozilla offices, is Google! Much like Mozilla (and the rest of Silicon Valley), the Google offices are modern. Almost everywhere you look is open space with just a few dividers providing a modicum of privacy between each of the engineers. There are temporary, blow-up yurts if you require a meeting space, but that's it. Between the buildings there are beautiful...

Verified authors start appearing in Chrome Extensions Gallery -- but not on Google's own extensions?

If you were about to launch a new feature on an add-on site for an application you develop, it seems like your own creations would be a great place to start. Take the Chrome Extensions Gallery and the new $5 fee/domain verification functionality Google just added. The Chromium blog announced the change two days ago, and several extensions are already displaying the verified author stamp. While...

How Chrome Extension Gallery domain verification will help protect users

Yesterday, Google announced on the Chromium blog that they were introducing two changes affecting the Chrome Extensions Gallery: a $5 registration fee for new developers, and domain verification. The measures are designed to provide a level of quality assurance and security which was previously lacking. Domain verification is the big security addition. If you read our posts on how to install...

Google adds World Cup themes category to Chrome Extensions Gallery, underscores its failings

Good: Google has added a boatload of new World Cup themes to the Chrome Extensions Gallery. Now you can proudly display your nation's colors as a theme on your Chrome browser! Bad: It's a perfect example of what is wrong with the Chrome Extensions Gallery. The themes actually appeared late yesterday, though they looked like extension spam to me. There were no screenshots posted. They're not...

Inside the new music streaming service Rdio, quick review and gallery

Last week news broke of Rdio, the new brainchild of the Kazaa and Skype creators. Everyone was very briefly elated until they found out a) it's USA-only, and b) it's still in the middle of private beta testing. Still, thanks to the kindness of a Download Squad reader, and some network hacking (I live in the UK), I can now tell you all about Rdio! If you prefer pictures, there's a high-resolution...

Flogr puts Flickr photo galleries on your own portfolio website

Flogr is a free PHP script which lets you easily deploy a full-featured gallery on your own site, which pulls all of its data from your Flickr profile. As you can see on the demo site, it pulls all information on any given photo. EXIF details, comments, tags, license information -- everything. You can think of it as an alternative Flickr interface, on your own site. The photo information is...

Is Google getting ready to move user-created themes out of the Extensions Gallery?

Tonight while I was browsing the Chrome Extensions Gallery, I noticed something a bit odd. A recently uploaded theme returned the error you see above when I clicked it. OK, I thought... Maybe the author really did take it down. So I tried again... Using some of the more popular themes, like the Android-inspired one I blogged about a while back. Again, the error appeared. Which got me thinking:...
