Chrome for desktop may soon get a useful feature from its mobile version

Chrome Canary is testing a screengrabbing feature on desktop.

What you need to know

  • Google Chrome Canary now includes a new option for taking screenshots of web pages.
  • It is the same feature that was released a few months ago on Chrome for Android.
  • The new capability also allows you to edit and share your screengrabs.

Taking a screenshot with Google Chrome on desktop is typically accomplished through the use of third-party extensions or applications rather than a native tool built into the browser. However, this will change in the future as a new capability is being tested on the most recent Chrome Canary builds.

According to Techdows, Chrome Canary version 98 now includes two flags that enable you to take, edit, and share screengrabs on your laptop, including many of the best Chromebooks. The new feature is accessible via the share menu in Chrome Canary, as it is in the mobile version.

To enable the screengrabber, go to chrome:/flags, search for "Desktop Screenshots" and "Desktop Screenshots Edit Mode," and turn them on. Because the screenshot option is in the share menu, you'll also need to enable the desktop sharing hub flag so that the share button appears in the omnibox (address bar), if it isn't there already.

When you tap the share icon, you'll see the screenshot option in the menu. Once selected, it will allow you to choose the part of the screen you want to capture. After that, you can decide whether to download the screenshot or make changes to it before saving it locally. For the time being, however, the editor is not functional yet, suggesting that the Google Chrome team obviously needs more time to polish the feature.

The feature was first made available in Chrome for Android a few months ago. Its arrival on the desktop makes it easier to capture and edit screenshots with a built-in tool rather than wasting time searching for browser add-ons or third-party software tools for that task.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1
