The Chrome Web Store

A web browser is the application you use to view websites.

The Chrome Web Store is an online marketplace where you can discover thousands of apps, extensions and themes for Google Chrome. To start exploring the store, visit chrome.google.com/webstore or click the store icon in Chrome’s New Tab page.

Desktop notifications for emails and chat messages

Many of us are guilty of constantly switching back to Gmail to check for new messages. And if you’re like me, you’ve probably missed an important chat message because you weren’t looking at your Gmail window when it came in. If you use Google Chrome, these days can be over since we just launched HTML5 desktop notifications which display pop-ups whenever a chat message or new email arrives.


To turn them on, click on the Settings link in the top right corner of Gmail and scroll down to the “Desktop Notifications” section. If you just want to get notified about chat messages, or if you use Priority Inbox and only want to get notifications for important messages, you can customize your settings from there too.


This functionality is currently only available for people using Google Chrome

The "I" and "G" of Oracle

The "i" stands for "internet" and the "g" stands for "grid".

The i version started from 8i onwards. It stands for oracle internet. Because till then (in version 8)it did not support data transfer over the internet. At that point of time use of internet was not widely used. Next was 9i with some of the enhanced features of 8i. Next was 10g, it stands for Oracle GRID,because it supports grid architecture. 

10g is Oracle's grid computing product group including (among other things) a database management system (DBMS) and an application server. In addition to supporting grid computing features such as resource sharing and automatic load balancing, 10g products automate many database management tasks.

10g follows Oracle's 9i platform. Oracle says that the g (instead of the expectedi) in the name symbolizes the company's commitment to the grid model.

Next in database is 11g which is basically a ERP.
