Last Dev Update of Chrome OS now bundles the free and high-quality Pan-CJK font family: Noto Sans CJK¹ that Google, in cooperation with Adobe, has recently² released³ to provide a richer and more delightful reading experience to the East Asian community.

To see it in action, you may want to go to data:text/plain;charset=UTF-8,안녕하세요 for instance and checkout the rendered font in your Dev Tools.

I'm confident you already know the chrome://system internal page to access all kinds of System Information and logs but do you know how to read a log file if you only know its name?

It's actually pretty easy! Type directly in the omnibox file:///var/log and explore all the System logs. For instance, if the filename is bios_info.txt, the file would simply be located at file:///var/log/bios_info.txt.

You may have noticed that the print preview settings column was currently cluttered even though you usually use only a small subset of these settings.

That's why a new "More options" setting has been added in the last chromium build which toggles the non-essential sections visibility.
Try it now by downloading the last chromium build at https://download-chromium.appspot.com, run it and press <Ctrl>+P on any tab.

The chromium team is working on a cool project for developers called Cronet, to give the Chrome Network Stack an officially supported API for external embedders on mobile platforms. That means taking advantage of the fast and secure network stack chrome net library for native Android and iOS applications.

Of course, the code is open source and available in the chromium repository at /src/net¹ and src/components/cronet². And you're wondering how play with it, have a look at the Cronet sample³.

The chromium team is adding in the last chromium build some native-looking extension options pages. Yes, you read it correctly! No more extension tabs but a nice consistent user experience for developers and users.

It's still early but developers can already give it a try quite easily by adding the "embeddedExtensionOptions" permission to their extension manifest and enabling the experimental chrome://flags/#enable-embedded-extension-options flag in the last chromium build. Then the "options" link in the chrome://extensions page will simply open a dialog containing the options page¹.
