Chrome 64 makes it easier to find the flags you changed

Chrome has a hidden 'flags' page, located at chrome://flags, where you can toggle various features and settings on and off. The page was redesigned not too long ago, but there's another helpful change now available in Chrome Beta, Dev, and Canary - the flags you manually enable or disable are now pushed to the top of the page.

Chrome Dev and Canary have a new video player, with YouTube's double-tap media controls

The video player on Chrome for Android has always closely mirrored (or looked identical to) the desktop Chrome video player. There's a play/pause button, a timeline, and whatever other controls the site has enabled (full-screen, volume, download, etc.). A brand new video player has appeared in Chrome Dev and Canary, with the same double-tap to fast-forward/rewind that the YouTube app added earlier this year.

Zooper Widget is back in the Play Store

Apps are not forever, and it seemed like the end of the road for Zooper Widget last week when it vanished from the Play Store. However, in something of a Christmas miracle, the apps have returned.

Kick off the holiday weekend with 20 temporarily free and 95 on-sale apps

It's finally Friday! Christmas is just a few short days away, so here's my final round of app sales before the holiday. The list today is almost as long as Wednesday's, which itself was massive, but I find it lackluster in comparison. There are some good things to be had, like The Room 3, which you will find in bold. And be sure to go back to Wednesday's post so that you can get in on the remainder of the sales there. Also, I will not be posting one of these on Monday, so I will see you all again next Wednesday.

Instagram now lets you directly nag your friends to watch your live video

What's the point of broadcasting live on Instagram if you can't prod your followers to watch you? Otherwise you're just livestreaming to the wind. To solve this crisis, Instagram today announced a new feature allowing users to send their live videos right to the Direct inbox of a follower or a group of them. It's kind of like performing a song on their front lawn and throwing rocks at their window to get them to notice.

Live videos still work as they always have, this only adds the ability to single out the users you would like to join you, giving you a way of saying, "Hey!
