1Password 4 for iPhone and iPad has gotten a major updated today, with big changes and additions to the browser, sharing, and search, among others. 1Browser, the in-app browser that allows users to take advantage of 1Password features like auto-fill, has added 1Passwords strong password generator for the iPad version. AgileBits says that this feature is also on its way to the iPhone eventually. Quick access to all of your logins has also been added to the browser, and you can now auto-submit after you auto-fill your login information if you wish. URLs on your clipboard will now be detected by 1Password, which will prompt you to open them in the browser.
There are also new sharing options. Users can now share from Vault Mode via email and SMS. Emails can either be sent encrypted or in plain text. The recipient will see an “Add to 1Password” link, allowing you to send them items like shared login information and secure notes. Anyone with a copy of 1Password for iOS can open this link so delete it when you’re finished, and exercise common sense security practices.
Search has also been improved with support for login items and expanding your search across multiple fields. There have also been improvements to Dropbox sync and translations, as well as the addition of Greek language support.
The update is available now, so 1Password 4 users, go grab it, and tell us what you think of the changes.

Several years ago, the Rockmelt web browser was born using the Chrominium source code. For this reason, the browser itself looks and behaves very similarly to Google Chrome. The idea was to develop a browser to serve as an alternative to Google Chrome by emphasizing social features that are not found in the competition.
In the next few months, Rockmelt will be discontinuing the web browser and launch Rockmelt for Web. This move is actually not a result of poor performance, but due to the fact that the Chrominium source code has a very consistent schedule for updates. As a result, it is costing far too much too keep up, which is absolutely essential to guarantee high and consistent performance.
Rockmelt for Web is a service that centers around content discovery and sharing. In fact, it could potentially be a popular migrating spot when Google Reader heads into retirement on July 1.
“Rockmelt.com is now a visual stream of the web; content from your favorite sites, your favorite people, and a dash of crazy stuff you never would have discovered,” say Rockmelt’s creators Tim Howes and Eric Vishria. It attempts to combine discovery tools like RSS feeds and services like StumbleUpon with social networks to provide a complete experience.
As of right now, Rockmelt for Web is invite-only. The only exception is users of the Rockmelt web browser and the iOS application have already received invites. You can however request an invite just by heading to the service directly.
Since we reported last week that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a lock screen bug, which lets users take a sneak peek of the home screen and cause limited potential harm, another blogger has discovered more exploits that are possible despite a lock screen protecting the phablet.
An Indian blogger named Ganesh first found the issue and wrote a detailed post about it. To summarize, any user simply needs to select an item listed in the information ticker. The device then prompts the user to enter the passcode to unlock the device. However, by tapping Emergency call button, the device displays the Emergency dialer window but with the Popup Browser open and fully usable. Ganesh claims that any attacker can visit webpages that has stored your personal data. Furthermore, through the browser, the attacker can also see what is in the clipboard.
Naturally, Note 2 users need not worry about this problem unless their device is stolen and has its lock screen’s information ticker enabled. The problem can also be avoided by selecting a full screen Internet browser as the default app for launching links.
On a lighter note, Samsung is well aware of the issue and is planning to release a security patch. A company rep told CNET in an email the following statement:
In the meantime, users can download the Lookout Security & Antivirus app. Its latest update protects Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, and Galaxy S3 Mini devices from the bug that bypasses their lock screens. It is especially useful for the S3 since its bug can actually disable the lock screen and thereby provide complete control over the device.

The inquisitive spirits at Ars Technica have decided to see if the new Chrome is as fast as Google claims. The simplest way to do that was to run the same benchmarks on the same device on the two versions of Chrome.
First, the Ars team used a Galaxy S3 running Samsung’s Android implementation and three browsers – the old version of Chrome, the new version of Chrome, and the stock Android browser. The browsers were tested with three web benchmarks, SunSpider 0.9.1, Kraken 1.1, and Octane v1.
The second setup comprised of a Nexus 7 running stock Android 4.2.2 and the same benchmarks. This time, only the two versions of Chrome were tested, because Google ships Chrome as the default browser on Android 4.2.
The results were consistent across the benchmarks – the new Chrome for Android 25 is much faster than the previous version, and also beats the Android browser. While Ars Technica wasn’t able to replicate the 25% score improvement that Google announced, the results were good enough to give Google a passing score.
Along with the speed improvements, the latest version of Chrome for Android comes with support for new HTML5 features, optimizations of the scroll and swipe behavior, and bug fixes. Try it now or update your existing version from Google Play.
