GOOGLE CHROME'S PRINT PREVIEW FEATURE

               Recently i wanted to take a very important print out of an online document for my project and found out there was no way to do a ‘Print Preview’ in Google Chrome. After searching I found it and i thought would be great if i share it here.

Steps To Print Preview in Google Chrome



1. First step is to download an extension called IE Tab which opens websites in Google Chrome as if its opening in Internet Explorer.
2. After opening the particular page to print (or print preview), click on the IE Tab extension icon besides your address bar. It would open a new tab which would display the page as if its Internet Explorer.


3. When the page is loaded, right click anywhere on the page and you can see the option ‘Print Preview’ in the context menu.
4. Click on it and that’s it, you would be able to preview how the print would look.
Click the following link to download the IE Tab:

GAMOLUTION- LATEST MOBILE WITH 3D MOTION GAMING FROM MICROMAX


Nokia tried it with its N-series, Sony Ericsson tried it with its F-Series and now we have Micromax who is the latest entrant which is a world of mobile gaming. The company has announced its first gaming oriented handset named "Gamolution" . The Gamolution is capable of motion gaming and boasts of a decent accessory list that should make your gaming experience the best. It comes with a Bluetooth game dongle, a bunch of lanyards and a few wristbands. You get Game Codes as well as a separate Game Manual.

The phone has a very nice specification.A dual band phone that comes with a large enough 2.4-inch QVGA display. As mentioned earlier, it supports 3D motion gaming and has a microSD slot packed in as well. You can increase the stock memory to 4GB - which should be sufficient for a phone of its class.

The Gamolution also has a basic 2-megapixel camera that should suffice for casual photography. While it might not be a REALLY good camera phone, you can use it as a very usable webcam. The G4 Gamolution, as the phone is also called, comes with 500-person phonebook memory and capacity to store up to 200 SMS - which we feel is a bit on the lower side.

The Gamolution has a not-very-impressive 850mAh Li-ion battery which can, on paper, provide the phone 5 hours talk time and up to 8 days of standby time. The company is yet to announce a release date and price related information.
