How to create Google Chrome Theme

1. Download and install Google Chrome (
2. Download and install Resource Hacker (
3. Open Resource hacker and goto > file > open,
4. XP : Navigate to [LOCAL DRIVE LETTER]:Documents and Settings[Username]Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleChromeApplication.2.149.27Themes
VISTA : [LOCAL DRIVE LETTER]:Users[Username]AppDataLocalGoogleChromeApplication.2.149.27Themes
5. Within that directory there should be “default.dll” -> Open it with Resource Hacker
6. Right Click on BINDATA and click “Save [BINDATA] Resources
7. Make a new folder on your desktop called “BINDATA” and save the file as “1,txt”
8. You should now have a directory called “BINDATA” on your desktop
- Opening it should reveal many files.
9. DELETE “1.txt” within that directory. You should still be left with many files.
10. Open up Command Prompt - START>>RUN>>”CMD”
11. Navigate to the “BINDATA” Directory
- To go up a directory in CMD type “cd..”
- To access a directory type “cd [directory name]“
- So when I opened CMD I typed in the following:
- cd “c:documents and settings**MY USERNAME**desktopBINDATA”
12. Once you have navigated to the BINDATA folder which you created, type in “ren *.bin *.png”
13. If you open up the BINDATA folder you should find a tonne of PNG files all making up the Chrome GUI.
14. You need to go through and open the ones you want to change. If you don’t have Photoshop/fireworks or some other photo/image editing application then download GIMP ( or GIMPshop (

15. Once you have edited all the files you want to open up Resource Hacker again!
16. This is the really really boring bit! (sorry)
17. In the directory tree, open up BINDATA > 9000 > Now Right click on 1033 and click Replace Resource
- In the dialog box, click “open file with new resource”
- Navigate to your BINDATA folder
- All the PNG files in this folder should be named numerically (e.g. DATA_1, DATA_2 etc.)
- Select the first PNG (probably “DATA_1.png” and click open.
- There should now be three empty text input boxes
- in “RESOURCE NAME” enter “9000″ (or whichever directory you’re within) (If you are replacing the resource under “9001″ then enter “9001″ here etc. etc.)
- in “RESOURCE LANGUAGE” enter “1033″
18. Repeat step 17 for every single resource under BINDATA. (VERY TEDIOUS)
- Remember to change “RESOURCE NAME” each time you do this, second time it will be “9001″, then “9002″… etc….
19. The numbers within your BINDATA folder (on your desktop) may NOT correspond to the resource names under BINDATA in resource hacker, so don’t worry about that - you’ll have to progressively work your way through the resources.
20. WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED (should take about 2-3 years) in Resource hacker go > file > save - NOW RESTART CHROME!

Chrome Tips: Resizing TextBox Area

Another interesting new feature in Google Chrome is the abilty to resize any multiline text box area.
It is very easy to use this feature. Whenever you find a Multi-line Text Box in a web form while browsing through Google Chrome, you would find a small grey dotted right-angled triangle on the lower right hand corner of the Text Box. The screen shot is shown below..

Google Chrome version Released!

The biggest change in this release is that we no longer save data from secure sites in your local history database:
Google Chrome keeps a searchable history of pages you visit. This history is only stored locally on your computer. Previously, this searchable history included the text from secure sites, such as your online bank (any sites using SSL for security).
As Google Chrome won't be saving this text from secure pages in its local history, the address bar and local history will no longer find data from secure sites you've visited

Major Changes:

  1. Improve update more reliable
  2. Improved Flash performance
  3. Fixed compatibility with other plugins
  4. Made fixes to how Google Chrome handles JavaScript

Change Log

Google Chrome version was released on 17 September 2008. Users will get automatic updates over the next few days.

Security Updates

  • [r2042] Fix a potential denial of service with very long title attributes on tags. The title attribute sets the tooltip text when you hover the mouse over an element.
    Security Rating: Low risk. This can lead to 100% CPU usage or a tab crash.
    More information:

Other Changes

  • [r1927] Stop adding content from HTTPS sites to the searchable index.
    Google Chrome keeps a searchable history of pages you visit. This history is only stored locally on your computer. Previously, this searchable history included the text from secure sites, such as your online bank (any sites using SSL for security). Google Chrome no longer saves text from secure pages in its local history. The address bar and local history search page will no longer find data from secure sites you have visited.

    If you are concerned about data that might have been indexed for searching before this release, you can follow the Google Chrome Help Center instructions for
    clearing your browsing history.
  • [r1978] Don't send sensitive URLs to search suggest services. Google Chrome stops sending data to a suggest service if the typed URL:
    • contains a username:password field (
    • has query parameters (the trailing ?param=data following the URL)
    • is an https URL with any path component (any part following the hostname, such as /path in

  • [r1848, r1943, r2003] Fixes to the Google Chrome updater to make updates more reliable.
  • [r1859] Fix problems with Flash not playing video if too many connections are opened. For example, using the slider to advance video on YouTube could cause video to stop playing.

  • [r2059] Allow JavaScript to communicate with Java applets. Fixes bug 580.

  • [r1299] JavaScript: Dispatch contextmenu events after mouseup events. This fixes the right-click menu not working on Google Spreadsheets. Fixes bug 745.

  • [r1692] Fix crashes with some plugins --3dvia was the most widely reported-- when they return an error for NPN_GetValue. Fixes bug 493.

How To: Change Google Chrome User Agent

You can do lot of interesting things on the web if you know how to modify the user-agent string of a web browser. For instance, change the Chrome user-agent string to that of iPhone Safari and you’ll be to read popular magazines for free.

Or change the user-agent to Googlebot and you get to read Wall St. Journal stories without subscribing. Or use the user-agent of Opera Mini phone browser and see mobile versions of web pages even on the desktop.

While it is relatively easy to edit the User-Agent string of Firefox, IE, Flock or Apple Safari through add-ons and registry hacks but you don’t have that luxury in Chrome since Google’s browser doesn’t support external add-ons yet.

iPhone version of Zinio Magazines in Google Chrome

It is however possible to change the user-agent of Google Chrome via the following hack - open Chrome.dll file inside a Hex viewer, search for the Chrome User Agent string and overwrite (not insert) that with the user-agent of another browser.  Thanks Ramzalot.


Here are the full steps involved:

0. Make a backup of chrome.dll file - the file is available in the 0.2.xx folder of your Chrome installation folder (refer to #2).

1. Open chrome.dll inside Xvi32 and search for a patten that matches the default user agent string for Google Chrome :

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/0.X.Y.Z Safari/525.13.


2. Point the cursor to the letter M and choose Edit -> Overwrite String. Paste the user-agent of any other browser here. For instance, the strings for iPhone and Google spiders are:

Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1A543 Safari/419.3

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +

3. Close Google Chrome (if running) and then save the chrome.dll file inside the hex editor. Restart chrome.exe and type about: in the address bar to confirm if the user agent has changed. If you have trouble opening chrome after making the above changes, just delete the modified chrome.dll file and replace it with the old backup.

iPhone mobile version of Google Reader in Google Chrome

As an example, I change the user agent of Google Chrome to iPhone and that is the reason why Google opening the iPhone optimized version of Google Reader even inside Chrome.

If you plan to use this trick more frequently, a better option is that you create multiple copies of chrome.dll - one per user agent. Now if you want Chrome to emulate IE or Firefox, just make rename the chrome-firefox.dll or chrome-iphone.dll to chrome.dll.

Google Chrome Trick: Calculate from Omnibox!

Google Chrome Trick: Calculate from Omnibox!

Google Chrome is a pretty fascinating browser. With the power of Google Search available from the address bar itself, you can actually conduct searches from the Omnibox itself.

Just type in a calculation. You do not even need to press enter. As the answer would just arrive in the drop down section!

How To Backup Google Chrome Browser

Here is a simple way to backup the preference and settings of Google chrome browser.This is a manual way in which you don’t need to download any freeware software.

Doing a backup of Google Chrome settings


This will let you backup the whole Google chrome web browser settings which means you cannot backup the passwords,cache,saved option or bookmarks.

Just go to run (windows+r) and type the following

C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

google_backup_chromeMake sure you change the  to your system account name and change the drive depending on the OS installed.Now a window pops out showing cache,plugins,web history and many more files.Copy the file named Preference and save it anywhere in your hard disk.Next time when your chrome crashes then download and re install Google chrome and paste the “Preference” file back to the same folder to retrieve the preference and settings!


This is another way to do a full backup of Chrome browser by downloading a freeware software.

Using Google chrome backup software


Download a free software called “Google chrome backup” which will not only backup Google chrome data but also restore it easily! Chrome data includes all settings/preference including password backup,bookmark backup,cache and also other saved option which are both backed up and restored (whole profile) using Google chrome backup freeware.

Google Chrome Trick - Changing The Default Search Engine

Google web browser has very minimum option for customization as it is already built to suit the Internet users,if you have Google chrome browser downloaded on your PC then you will know that the browser has a smart address bar which also acts as search engine,this means you can type the website address with automatic url suggestion as well as search in search engine using the same bar.


When you are done with installation of Chrome,you will have a option to change the search engine and also to import the password,history and bookmarks from other browser (backup and restore the chrome profile).If you have skipped changing the search engine then Google chrome will have a default search engine set which is “”.Also chrome can be empowered with firefox chrome addon/extension. If you are a user who uses other search engine like yahoo,MSN live search then here is a simple trick to change the default search engine.

Open your Chrome browser and using your mouse,right click on the address bar,this shows up various things like paste,paste and go and Edit search engine.


Click on Edit search engine and a dialog box will appear with information about the various default and other search engine available.


Click on Add or choose from the existing search engine and click on Make default.Alternately you can choose Yahoo,MSN live search engine and make is as default, also you can remove any search engine or add local search engine easily!

Mouse Around Chrome

Despite its marketing as a minimalistic browser that forgoes all the extras, Chrome's interface actually sports quite a few useful features. Here are a few that will speed up your browsing with the mouse even more:
  • Click and hold (or right-click) the Back or Forward button to go directly to a page far behind or forward in your browsing history.

  • When you've got a URL on your clipboard, right-click Chrome's address bar to Paste and go to your destination (and save yourself an extra tap on the Enter key).

  • Click and drag any textarea corner to resize it to your liking; great for blog comments, web email, or forums with textareas that aren't big enough to accommodate your masterpiece.

  • Ctrl+Mousewheel to zoom in or out of pages in Chrome.

  • Drag and drop downloads out of Chrome's status bar and onto your desktop to save them there, or into any Explorer window to save them there. (You already know you can drag and drop a Chrome tab out into a new window, or back into an existing Chrome window to dock it there.)

Trouble installing Google Chrome?

Are you having trouble installing Google Chrome? These instructions 
will show you how to create a log file and send them to the Google 
Chrome team for investigation. 

Please note: It may contain your Windows username, as these are part 
of many Windows file paths. No other personally identifiable 
information will be included, just data around your system and Google 
Chrome's ability to install. 

For Chrome Installer Log: 
These instructions involve editing your registry.  If you're 
or unfamiliar with editing your registry, you may want to consult 
someone before 
following these instructions. 

1. Create a new registry entry under 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Update of type REG_SZ with the name 
"ChromeInstallerCleanup" and value "0". 

2. Run ChromeSetup again. 

3. Check under C:\Document and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp (on 
Windows XP) or C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temp (on Vista) for a 
folder with the name CR_* 

4. Go into that folder. There should be two files - setup.exe and a 
chrome.7z file. Compress chrome.7z file using 7zip compression utility 
and name it as chrome.packed.7z. For more information about 7zip, see 

5. Open the command prompt (Start > Run > "cmd"), then navigate to the 
folder listed above. Once in that folder in the command prompt, 
execute this command: 

setup.exe --verbose-logging --install-archive=7z> 

6. Look under C:\Document and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp (on 
XP) or C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temp (on Vista) for a file a 
called chrome_installer.log. 

7. Open this file, select and copy the text, and paste it into your 
Help Group post. 

Including this data will help the Google Chrome team understand 
exactly where the installer is running into trouble. We can then 
speedily work with you on a fix.

Tip: Changing the Icons on the Bookmarks Bar

I figured out a way to change the icons on the Bookmarks bar after I
got tired of the default icon showing for all of my bookmarklets.
You'll need the SQLite Database Browser (free).

First, you'll need to download and install the free SQLite Database browser.

Now, open Google Chrome and visit the site(s) that have the favicon you want displayed in your Bookmarks bar. After you have completed this, close Google Chrome.

We are ready to change icons:

1. Open SQLite Database browser.

2. Go to the toolbar and select the Open (folder) icon to bring up the Open window.

3. When the open window appears, you will need to browse to the following directory:

In Windows XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

In Windows Vista:

C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

Note: change username to your username.

4. Open the History file.

5. Select the Browse Data tab.

6. Select urls from the Table dropdown.

7. The table will appear with the following columns: id, url, title, visit_count, typed_count, last_visit_time, hidden, favicon_id and starred_id. Our main focus will be on the favicon_id and starred_id columns, but you will need to pay attention to the title column as well. Any row that has a value other than 0 in the starred_id column is a bookmark. Any row that has a value other than 0 in the favicon_id column has an icon associated with it (if it has a 0, it will use the default icon).

8. Locate one of the sites you browsed to earlier that contains the desired favicon that you wish to use. Make sure it has a value in the favicon_id column. When you have located it, make note of the value that is in the favicon_id column.

9. Now locate the bookmark that you want to assign the favicon to. The title may appear more than once, so you must make sure that you select the record that has a value in the starred_id column.

10. Double-click the favicon_id record (the one that is 0) to open the Edit database cell window.

11. Change the 0 to the value you got from Step 8.

12. Click the Apply Changes button.

13. Repeat this process until you have finished assigning icons to your bookmarks.

14. Go to the toolbar and click the Save icon.

Now open up Google Chrome and check out your Bookmarks bar.

Tip for "never remember password" in Google Chrome

If you have accidentally selected "never remember password" and now your password
will not auto populate for your gmail account there is a way to undo

You'll have to clear your browsing history, and then revisit Gmail and
login, and Chrome will then again ask you to remember your password
for it.

Use Multiple Google Accounts Simultaneously in Google Chrome

Google Chrome's incognito mode is less sophisticated than IE8's InPrivate browsing, but it has a feature that will be useful for those who have more than one Google account.

When you open a window in incognito mode (Ctrl+Shift+N), your cookies from the standard session are no longer available and you can easily log in to a new Google account.

Chrome's help center has more details about this feature. "Webpages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito won't be logged in your browsing and download histories; all new cookies are deleted after you close the incognito window. You can browse normally and in incognito mode at the same time by using separate windows." Michael Jeffrey explains that "incognito mode is a window-level mode - all pages viewed within this window are not persisted to the user's history, and incognito pages use a temporary cookie store that is blank at the start of the incognito session"

When you close the incognito window, all the cookies are deleted so you need to log in again the next time you browse in incognito mode. This trick can be used for any other services that allow multiple accounts, but you can only use two accounts at the same time: one in a standard window and the other one in incognito mode.

Caratteristiche Google Chrome

Philip Lenssen di Blogoscoped è uno dei destinatari del fumetto, e ci spiega in questo articolo quali sono le novità che dovremo aspettarci da Google Chrome:
  • Il Browser includerà una Java Virtual Machine chiamata V8, in grado di velocizzare l’esecuzione degli Javascript ed evitare indesiderati blocchi del sistema.
  • La posizione dei tab sarà una delle altre novità del progetto: stanchi di vederle sotto la barra degli indirizzi? In Google Chrome saranno posizionati nella parte superiore della finestra.
  • Sarà inserita una barra degli indirizzi chiamata “Omnibox” che, sulla falsa riga della Awesome Bar presentata in Firefox 3, gode di una funziona di autocompletamento che prende in considerazione molti elementi tra cui la popolarità e il numero di visite delle pagine.
  • L’ Homepage di default di Google Chrome sarà divisa in 9 thumbnail, in cui potrete vedere e consultare le pagine più visitate, e in una sidebar incui compariranno le ultime ricerche effettuate, gli ultimi tab chiusi e le pagine salvate tra i preferiti.
  • Sarà inserita la modalità “privacy” e la finestra “incognito”: tutte le attività in questa pagina non verranno mai salvate o archiviate sul computer in uso. Qualcuno l’ha già definita come una sorta di “porn mode”, e forse non ha azzardato più di tanto.
  • Le applicazioni web potranno essere lanciate in finestre separate, senza barra degli indirizzi, toolbar ed elementi superflui.
  • Per difendersi dai Malware e dai tentativi di phishing Google Chrome sarà costantemente aggiornato con la lista di siti pericolosi

Il progetto sembra davvero interessante, e non mi stupirei se Google Chrome rubasse una fetta di mercato ai più Celebri Firefox, Opera o Internet Explorer. D’altra parte bisogna tener presente che nessuno è in grado di pubblicizzare un prodotto nel web così come può fare Google.Non ci resta che testarne personalmente la velocità, la stabilità e l’interfaccia. E non dovremo sostenere alcuna attesa snervante, l’ appuntamento è per domani.

"[..]We will be launching the beta version of Google Chrome tomorrow in more than 100 countries.[..]So check in again tomorrow to try Google Chrome for yourself. We’ll post an update here as soon as it’s ready.[..] Googleblog"

Google Chrome

E’ nato come semplice motore di ricerca, è cresciuto, tanto ed a ritmi elevatissimi dirigendo la propria politica verso lo sviluppo di applicazioni Web e del cosiddetto Web 2.0, acquisendo sempre più importanza in internet, tanto che oggi è molto probabilmente la realtà più affermata del web. Ma non è finita, a breve avrà anche un suo browser.Sto parlando ovviamente di Google e del suo nuovo, lungimirante progetto: Google Chrome.
La notizia è stata diffusa proprio in questi giorni dallo stesso team di BigG: è in fase di sviluppo un browser open source chiamato Google Chrome basato sul motore WebKit (motore già particolarmente apprezzato da Apple e da Google stessa per la realizzazione di Android.)Anche il modo con cui è stata diramata la notizia è una novità: un fumetto di 38 pagine (ora disponibile a questo indirizzo), realizzato da un affermato fumettista statunitense e contenente tutte le informazioni sul progetto, è stato recapitato nelle caselle di posta delle più influenti personalità del web. E non sto parlando di posta elettronica.
