Latest Chrome Beta Update Brings Back Number Indicator For Open Tabs

In July, Chrome Beta was updated with a new interface that more closely adhered to Google's new design vision - material design. Fitting with Google's occasional habit of stripping things down during major refreshes (see Google Maps on the web), many elements of the interface were sliced, rearranged, or simplified, including the tab indicator in the top right corner of the screen. Previously, the indicator showed users how many tabs were open, but after the redesign it simply displayed a square (or two stacked squares if you had multiple tabs open).

The World Ends With you came out on the Nintendo DS in 2008, and it quickly became a surprising hit, reviving developer Square Enix in the minds of RPG fans everywhere.

Square Order For Android Leaves Beta, Presumably Will Be Better At Letting You Buy Stuff, Still Only In SF And NYC

Square Order is actually a pretty interesting service - think Amazon Fresh meets Eat24. While it's still only available in New York City and San Francisco, the on-demand ordering system is finally out of beta on Android, with the app now available for consumption.
