Here is every feature added (and removed) in Chrome 80

Chrome has finally reached the 80s. The browser sadly doesn't have a neon theme or play The Power of Love at startup, but maybe Google is saving that for v85. Regardless, this version has plenty of changes to go into, so let's dive in.

Chrome will soon remove support for FTP connections

Many moons ago, the File Transfer Protocol (FTP, for short) was a popular way to host files online. It was also commonly used to manage files on servers, but was never designed to be a secure protocol, and suffers from countless vulnerabilities. Now that it has largely fallen out of use, Chrome will soon drop all support for FTP connections.

Zynga launches 'Words With Friends 2' with new social features, a solo play mode, and 50,000 new words

Words With Friends 2 - Word Game was recently launched on the Play Store as the follow-up sequel to Zynga's popular Scrabble clone Words With Friends. It is something of an odd release as it is more an expansion of the original gameplay than a true sequel. This luckily means that you can carry over your account and any game you are currently playing in the original to this new release without a hitch. It also means you can expect all of the same gameplay, but with a few new modes and words to play around with.

Spacetime Studios has released a public beta for its newest game Pocket Legends Adventures

Spacetime Studios, the creators of Pocket Legends, Dark Legends, Star Legends, and Arcane Legends, have released an all-new game in the Legends MMO series, but it may not be quite what you expect. You see, Spacetime Studios has stated that their newest release Pocket Legends Adventures isn't an MMO but is "an epic, action-packed RPG adventure." For the most part, I am seeing little difference from their other games, but maybe there are larger plans on the horizon for the official release?

The Moon is an all-seeing, levitating robotic eyeball that can control your home [Update]

We've seen levitating Bluetooth speakers and connected smart cameras before, but the Moon, a fully funded Indiegogo project, melds those technologies in a $209 ($330 at retail) floating robotic eyeball and base that can also act as a smart hub for your home. That is, if it ever ships. The typical crowdfunding caveats apply. Some Indiegogo projects don't have much of a future, and this is 1-Ring's first.

The Moon, which comes from 1-Ring Inc., comprises a wide-angle lens embedded in a sphere made of plastic, aluminum, and rubber. When the smart camera is levitating above its base unit, it can give its owner a 360-degree scan of whatever room it's placed in.

Microsoft finally graces us with the release of Age of Empires: Castle Siege

An overly long tutorial that you can not escape, check. Wait timers for almost every single action you want to perform, check. The ruining of a beloved franchise all for the love of the almighty dollar, check, check, and double check. Despite Microsoft's efforts, slapping the Age of Empires name onto a FTP wait time filled grind fest does not make it an actual Age of Empires game.
