Enrich Email Experience By Embedding Shared Content Right Below Emails You Send Or Receive

You easily or you can say automatically enrich your email experience by auto-embedding shared content right below your emails. Iframely for Gmail allows you to watch embedded videos, view images and read articles directly in your Gmail. Works same as oEmbed works in WordPress.

How it works ? After you open your gmail account, this app automatically searches web links present inside incoming mails and then everything gets visual. It ignores all emails you get from marketing bots etc and shows only content from real humans not by bots.

Another useful function this chrome app provides you is when you compose any email, it automatically detect photos in URLs which you are sending to your friends etc and it puts an image inside your emails for convenience of your peers.

It works same on embedding videos, sound and more but don’t worry it does not autoplay any videos and disrupt your productivity. You may click to open if required. The application is powered by Iframely Open Source API and is secured by http://iframely.com/qa.

What Makes Chromium Different From Google Chrome ?

Google Chrome is built upon Chromium open source project, Google chrome is packaged and distributed by Google officially. In-short Google Chrome is a commercial and closed source product by Google which is based on open source Chromium project. Chromium, being open source is mostly used by Linux operating system users. For example: Chromium is available in Ubuntu repositories and one can download it from Ubuntu Software Centre, it maintained by Ubuntu developers and goes through their stable release and update process, same thing happens with other Linux distros and this makes Chromium more compatible for Linux based operating systems.

Another key difference between Google Chrome and Chromium is chrome is red where as Chromium is blue in color ;-) You should know that both web browsers share majority of code and features, only a few minor differences makes them a little bit different from each other.

Chrome & Chromium

For creating Chrome from Chromium, Google uses its source code and adds following features:

  1. In-built print preview and print system
  2. Google name and a different logo trademarked
  3. In-built PDF viewe with proprietary license and code
  4. Auto-update and tracking system called GoogleUpdate
  5. Integrates Flash Player with proprietary license and code
  6. Opt-in option for users to send Google their usage statistics and crash reports

By default Chromium only supports Vorbis, Theora and WebM codecs for the HTML5 audio and video tags whereas Google Chrome supports these as well as AAC (patent-encumbered) and MP3 (formerly patent-encumbered). Although there are more differences but these are the technical ones which affect user user experience.
