GigaOM Chrome Show: New photos app, Gameboy in browser and better search history

ChromeShow logo

Chromebook Pixel owners finally get the long-awaited Photos app; will it get more people to use Google Plus as a primary photo storage and sharing hub? We debate that question and then express concern that Samsung doesn’t have a mid-range Chromebook to offer any more. Opera browser fans will be happy with the move to Blink as Chrome extensions are supported — if you know how to install them.

Kevin has some fun playing PacMan in the browser thanks to a Gameboy emulator and explains why the partial screengrab function sometimes doesn’t work quite right in Chrome OS. Don’t forget our extension of the week!
