Have you already tried Chrome?

Categories: Site Stuff   6 comments - January 5, 2009

Google ChromeGoogle ChromeNow that Chrome, the browser from Google, is no longer in beta, you might want to download it and give it a try.

I’ve played around with Chrome for the past month, and it now takes its place as my favorite browser, mostly because it is way faster than Firefox 3.0, which is way faster than IE itself.

If you are looking for speed when you visit FreeGamesNews on Windows, Chrome is unbeatable (at the time of writing) and loading pages is a third faster than with Firefox on my laptop!

Download Chrome.

“Yet another survey about online gaming”

Categories: Site Stuff    - October 30, 2007

online-gaming-survey.jpgThe Department of Media Management at the University of Ilmenau in Germany is conducting a survey about online gaming.

“This survey should take approximately five to 25 minutes, depending on the types of games you use. Your participation is a great help for their academic research of online games.

All information you give is collected anonymously and will only be used for academic purposes. There is no commercial provider involved in their research”.

Take the survey and have fun!

A small lifting…

Categories: Site Stuff    - September 11, 2006

FreeGamesNews.com was updated a few hours ago: from now on, the site is in 1024 mode to make the readers more comfortable.Two plugins were added today:

  • WP-PostViews, which enables to display how many time a post had been viewed. A most popular posts section should appear on the site soon…
  • Terong Related Links, which display useful related permalinks (if any) at the end of a post.

More to come later…
