Google Releases Chrome 20 Alpha

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — With the full release of Chrome 1.0 in December, Google has just released Chrome 2.0 alpha that brings many noticeable improvements over Chrome 1.0. With this new alpha release of Chrome 2.0, the browser has been overhauled in which it handles HTTP. LG Launches Versatile LG-KF700 Google Chrome 2.0 alpha Explore further Chrome 2.0 browser also includes the addition of auto-complete in text fields, full page zoom, improvements in spell checker, and auto scroll. Google also states that the 2.0 alpha is more reliable and faster browsing is achieved by accessing your hard drive less often.Now you can even import bookmarks from Google Bookmarks, a feature that was not found in Chrome 1.0. You also have the ability to drag a tab to certain positions on your monitor and have a docking icon appear. One interesting feature, worth mention, is the “Profiles” feature in this new release. The “Profiles” feature lets users separate their browser settings, including bookmarks, history, and cookies into different categories. For example if you use your work computer for personal use, you can set up a work profile and a personal profile so that your bookmarks, history and home pages are kept separate.A new version of WebKit rendering engine has also been implemented in Chrome 2.0 that’s the same as the one used in Apple’s Safari 3.1 web browser. The new rendering engine enables some CSS coding features such as reflections, masks, gradients, and canvas drawing. To get the new version of Chrome 2.0 you will need to have Chrome 1.0 installed on your PC. You will also need to subscribe to Google’s Developer Preview Channel. Keep in mind that Chrome 2.0 is an alpha release and expect it to crash quite often.On the web:Chrome 2.0.156.1 Release Notes: dev.chromium.org/getting-invol … s/releasenotes201561© 2009 PhysOrg.com Citation: Google Releases Chrome 2.0 Alpha (2009, January 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-01-google-chrome-alpha.html This document is subject to copyright.

Researchers find Europes forests moving toward carbon sink saturation point

first_img Explore further More information: First signs of carbon sink saturation in European forest biomass, Nature Climate Change (2013) DOI: 10.1038/nclimate1853AbstractEuropean forests are seen as a clear example of vegetation rebound in the Northern Hemisphere; recovering in area and growing stock since the 1950s, after centuries of stock decline and deforestation. These regrowing forests have shown to be a persistent carbon sink, projected to continue for decades, however, there are early signs of saturation. Forest policies and management strategies need revision if we want to sustain the sink. Journal information: Nature Climate Change © 2013 Phys.org The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere can be reduced in two ways. The first and most obvious is for people to stop pumping so much of it into the air. The second is to take more out (i.e., create carbon sinks), which for now at least, means planting more trees. As many of us may recall from grade school, trees pull carbon dioxide out of the air and store it in new growth—in return, oxygen is released into the atmosphere. Absorbed carbon remains in the wood until it either rots or is burned. For that reason, those concerned with reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and the associated rise in global temperatures promote the idea of planting more trees, while reducing deforestation.Europe is unique in that it’s one of the few places on the planet that has more trees now than it did a century ago. Replanting was initiated as part of rebuilding the continent after the ravages of two World Wars—particularly in France and Germany. Unfortunately, trees don’t live forever—those trees planted after the wars have grown so old that their ability to absorb carbon is slowing. The research team estimates these trees will reach a saturation point by 2030. The researchers also found that some parts of the continent have seen some deforestation as trees are cut to make room from expanding towns and cities. Cutting down trees and using the wood from them isn’t a problem of course, it’s when they are cut and not replaced that the problem occurs. For that reason, the research team suggests that old wood forests become part of harvesting programs to replace older trees with newer growth.The researchers also note that older forests are more at risk—fires, disease and insects all contribute to killing trees, allowing the carbon they hold to be released into the atmosphere. Cutting the trees and using the wood before they are killed, and then replacing them, the team notes, would make far more sense.
