Google Chrome could soon let you mute annoyingly noisy websites

Websites that auto-load videos with sound may soon be a thing of the past — or, at least, your days of having to put up with them could be. That’s because Google is testing a new option that lets users permanently mute a website within the Chrome Browser.   Noisy websites have long been a pain. Chrome introduced an indicator to flag guilty tabs a couple of years ago — it had long been needed — and now the development team is testing this mute option inside the latest experimental ‘Canary’ version, according to Google developer François Beaufort. You can follow this link if you want to try it out.   It looks very easy to use. Just click on the security status that’s located to the left of the website address, and then the option to mute the site sits within the list of its details and permissions. The mute itself lasts until the setting is changed, which effectively makes it a sound ban.   While the feature would only appear in Chrome, assuming that it graduates from this test rollout, it could spur other browser companies to follow suit.   This kind of option for users could discourage

Visualize data instantly with machine learning in Google Sheets

Ask and you shall receive → Sheets can build charts for you Explore in Sheets, powered by machine learning, helps teams gain insights from data, instantly. Simply ask questions—in words, not formulas—to quickly analyze your data. For example, you can ask “what is the distribution of products sold?” or “what are average sales on Sundays?” and Explore will help you find the answers. Now, we’re using the same powerful technology in Explore to make visualizing data even more effortless. If you don’t see the chart you need, just ask. Instead of manually building charts, ask Explore to do it by typing in “histogram of 2017 customer ratings” or “bar chart for ice cream sales.” Less time spent building charts means more time acting on new insights.   Instantly sync your data from Sheets → Docs or Slides Whether you’re preparing a client presentation or sharing sales forecasts, keeping up-to-date data is critical to success, but it can also be time-consuming if you need to update charts or tables in multiple sources. This is why we made it easier to programmatically update charts in Docs and Slides last year. Now, we’re making it simple to keep tables updated, too. Just copy and

How The New York Times used Google Sheets to report congressional votes

There’s a common phrase among reporters: “The news never sleeps.” This is why many news outlets rely on cloud-based productivity tools like Google Docs and Sheets to share information, check facts and collaborate in real time. And The New York Times is no exception. In May 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a new health care law affecting millions of Americans. To report the news as fast as possible, The Times’ editorial team used Sheets to tally and display House votes in real time on   Engaging voters with the Sheets API “People want to feel connected to the decisions their legislators make as soon as they make them,” said Tom Giratikanon,  a graphics editor at The Times. But rules in the House chamber make reporting on how every representative votes in real time difficult. Photography is restricted on the assembly floor, and there is a delay until all votes are displayed on the House website—a process that can sometimes take up to an hour. To get around this lag, Giratikanon’s team used the Google Sheets API. The editorial team dispatched reporters to the chamber where they entered votes into a Google Sheet as they were shown

Why You Should Never Use A Free Email Address for Business

The message is clear: email is king. Many clients and customers choose to communicate primarily by email and as you know, it gives a fantastic ROI in your marketing strategy…unless you’re using a free email like Hotmail, Gmail, or even your internet provider. If that’s the case, you’re losing business each and every day. It looks unprofessional:  Imagine if banks used free email accounts – you’d never feel comfortable giving them your personal details let alone any money. How people perceive your business is what makes your business. Without that professional touch, you’ll appear temporary and fly-by-night. It puts your credibility into question and sends the message that you’re not serious about doing business – or worse – that you’re prepared to cut corners. It erases your experience:  Newer, fledgling businesses often start out with a free email address. The address clearly communicates that they are new and have little experience, and are perhaps testing the waters in a new direction. They’re not even remotely proven yet and are firmly within the hobby-zone.  Continuing to use the free address once your business moves into the professional arena means you’ll struggle to build momentum and any experience will be negated. It’s

Luang Pradit Phairoh’s 136th Birthday

136 years ago, Luang Pradit Phairoh was born Sorn Silapabanleng to a musician’s family in the Amphawa District of Thailand. As a young boy, he accompanied his father and performed as part of a traditional Thai piphat (musical ensemble) across the countryside. At one of these soirees, his musical genius was discovered by a nobleman, and he encouraged 19-year-old Sorn to move to the capital to study music.   Today, he is regarded as the greatest composer of traditional Thai music. Luang Pradit tutored some of Thailand’s finest musicians and composers, including King Rama VII and Her Majestic Queen Rambhai Barni. In 1925, he was titled ‘Luang’ (a title similar to ‘Sir’), and in keeping with the tradition of the times, was also renamed with the honorific, Pradit Phairoh – loosely translated as ‘Master of Symphony’). Today’s Doodle depicts Luang Pradit Phairoh, against the backdrop of the ranat ek – a type of xylophone that forms the centerpiece of a traditional piphat. Luang Pradit was particularly known for his mastery of this instrument.   ที่มา: Google อ่านมาถึงตรงนี้ หากคุณเริ่มรู้สึกสนใจขึ้นมาแล้วล่ะก็ ติดต่อเราเพื่อสอบถามข้อมูล หรือขอคำแนะนำได้เลย บริษัท ดีมีเตอร์ ไอซีที จำกัด ผู้ให้บริการ G Suite ในประเทศไทย สอบถามรายละเอียดเพิ่มเติมพร้อมโปรโมชั่นพิเศษ โทร!  02-675-9371  092-262-6390  097-008-6314 (ฝ่ายขาย) Official LINE

Chatbots for business: a new support standard

If you’re wondering what’s next in the evolution of customer service technology, look no further than the closest chat window. Chatbots for business are taking off as companies large and small recognize their multitude of benefits. They’ve been driving higher conversion rates, deflecting low-priority tickets, and saving on costs. The results have been so promising that Gartner predicts 85% of customer interactions will be powered by chatbots in 2020. While traditional support channels like phone and email are still great ways to get in touch with a human representative, messaging and chat apps are increasingly becoming the preferred method of communication. According to a study Nielsen conducted among Facebook Messenger users in 2016, 56 percent of the app’s users would rather message a business than make a phone call. With live chat slowly edging out other customer service channels, a solution for self-service through chat was only going to be a matter of time.                      Chatbots for business can be created for a specific purpose like targeting something that happens consistently on a company’s website. That might include fielding common customer questions, pointing visitors to FAQ pages, or informing them about shipping and tax policies. Perhaps the most

Google launches Adblocker in Chrome Dev and Canary for Android

Google announced some time ago that it had plans to integrate an adblocker into the Chrome web browser. Google, being an advertising company first and foremost, at least when it comes to revenue generation, faces troubling times ahead caused largely by the increasing popularity of content blockers. The idea that Google came up with was to block the most annoying advertisement in Chrome by integrating an ad-blocker natively into the browser. The company hopes that this will slow down or even reverse the use of third-party content blockers, and improve the acceptance rate of advertisement on the Internet at the same time. The native adblocker will be integrated into desktop and mobile versions of the Chrome browser to block popup advertisement, auto-playing video ads with sounds and other annoying ad formats by default. The first version of the native Chrome adblocker has landed in Chrome Dev and Canary builds as of today. The feature seems to roll out from the server side, as I could not find the new option yet in both versions on an Android test device. You can find out if the adblocker is available by click on Menu > Settings > Site Settings. If you see
