Happy Birthday

Today Stefan vd Website is 4 year old. The website is created on 31 May 2006. And got less than 10 web pages. Here a small year overview about my projects.

The First line
GTI Mortsel in 3D was the first page on the website. Here i tell about our first 3D project and the making of the Belgium school GTI Mortsel in 3D. Later i create 3D buildings for the Google Earth program (Building from Brussels to Tokio).

Google Gadget
In the year 2007
The start of making great Google Gadget for Google Desktop. Example like the popular Fast Shutdown, Windows Dock gadget and more.

In the year 2009
I joined the Google Desktop (and Developer) group. And i am one the experienced developers that watch this group, answering questions and providing valuable feedback. Known as Google API Guru.

Google Chrome
Google Chrome is a web browser developed by Google that uses the WebKit layout engine and application framework. It was first released as a beta version for Microsoft Windows on 2 September 2008, and the public stable release was on 11 December 2008. The name is derived from the graphical user interface frame, or "chrome", of web browsers.

And today is Chrome the third most widely used browser, with 6.73% of worldwide usage share of web browsers, according to Net Applications.

Since November 2009
Google release the API for how making a Chrome extension. So i make my first Chrome extension. And it already now the most popular Google Chrome Extension ever: Turn Off the Lights, Print, Font Size and Date Today.

Chromie of the Week: Niwashi!

Niwashi really typifies what this forum is about. Niwashi's speedy replies, knowledge of Google Chrome, courtesy towards other users, and attention to detail have helped Google Chrome users the world over since Niwashi joined the forum last year. For example, in this recent thread, Niwashi speedily offered a helpful fix that precisely solved the asker's problem. What's more, Niwashi was kind enough to check back a couple of days later to further clarify the solution and resolve any confusion. If you have a small screen and are looking for a way to do away with the bookmarks bar, I recommend checking out Niwashi's post.

Thank you, Niwashi, for being a great asset to the forum! :)

M4192: Master of Brevity

Maybe it's just his forum alias, but M4192 reminds me of a secret agent.

He's always got a calm, cool, relevant response to the question at hand, and he gets right to the point--you get the sense he doesn't use a single extra letter in his posts. He's been a member of the forum since November 2009 and we hope he'll stick around for a lot longer.
Congrats M4192, and thank you!
