Alex: The Command Line King

While reading alex's posts, I thought to myself, "Wow, this guy is non-stop helpful." Every post he writes offers a smart, succinct solution, and he seems to genuinely enjoy helping people get the most out of Google Chrome. He's especially nifty when it comes to using command lines to solve problems: check out this post for a particularly creative work-around.

On top of the help he provides in the forum, alex writes an awesome blog about all things Google, and his Buzz is informative and entertaining. In short, check this guy out. He's awesome. And if you've got a Google Chrome question, you should hope he's in the neighborhood.

Below is one of the Google Chrome videos alex hosted on his blog.

Google Chrome Extensions

Dejan1024: Our Google Chrome Veteran

Here's a problem. People download Google Chrome abroad, and it automatically installs in the language of the country where they're traveling, which they can't read. There's an option to change their default language once Google Chrome is downloaded, but since they can't read the language, they can't navigate through the menu options. How can they make Google Chrome work for them?

Enter Dejan1024, our Google Chrome Veteran. After following this thread for a while, Dejan came up with the answer: a picture is worth a thousan words. He took time to lay out the whole process with screen shots and helpful numbered steps to walk people through the process, no matter what language their browser was in. Awesome.

Thanks Dejan, for all your awesome contributions.
