GigaOM Chrome Show: Gesture-based browsing with Leap Motion

ChromeShow logo

We wish Chrome a happy 5th birthday on this episode of the weekly podcast and discuss how far the browser has come in such a short time. The spotlight this week is on packaged apps; two are on our recommended list. And Best Buy is getting Google Sales Specialists, one of which Kevin already met and didn’t even realize it. Plus, if you nabbed a Leap Motion device, you can use it to browse Chrome with gestures using a custom extension
