Google announces its finally Moving Forward from Chrome Apps

Google has announced the end of chrome apps which you might be using very rarely in a 
blog post titled "Moving forward from Google apps" today. You don't to worry as deprecating this feature will not cause any effect in the way we browse our PC. Chrome apps are just a normal apps that will run inside chrome browser when you launched directly from desktop(the feature which most of us are not aware of). Only this feature is going to deprecated that too not immediately. 

The end of the beginning will commence on March 2020, Starting that month Chrome will no longer accept chrome apps from developers on its chrome web store. 

Developers will still be able to update their existing apps till June 2022 which is the  deadline for all users including chrome OS users. But if you are a Windows, Mac or Linux user then this feature will end for us on Coming June 2020.

Here is the timeline ..

  • March 2020: Chrome Web Store will stop accepting new Chrome Apps. Developers will be able to update existing Chrome Apps through June 2022.
  • June 2020: End support for Chrome Apps on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Customers who have Chrome Enterprise and Chrome Education Upgrade will have access to a policy to extend support through December 2020.
  • December 2020: End support for Chrome Apps on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
  • June 2021: End support for NaCl, PNaCl, and PPAPI APIs.
  • June 2021: End support for Chrome Apps on Chrome OS. Customers who have Chrome Enterprise and Chrome Education Upgrade will have access to a policy to extend support through June 2022.
  • June 2022: End support for Chrome Apps on Chrome OS for all customers.
Support for extensions doesn't have any issue, as Google clarified that it will keep on accepting and will allow the extensions to be installed and there is no change in it. However, if you are a web developer then you can move forward with Google by developing PWA's.


Oops, something has gone wrong. Please contact your software vendor. Network Manager needs to be running,no WiFi adapter error in Kali Linux [Solved]

Oops, something has gone wrong. Please contact your software vendor. Network Manager needs to be running this is the error message i got in Kali Linux. Currently, Wi-Fi is disconnected, not working / not visible in settings icon too, system says no wifi adapter found (which worked fine before that) when network manager service was restarted, any idea on how to fix this bro ?, i'm running Kali Linux latest version ! asked one of our blog reader (who seems to be newbie to linux world). 

So, i decided to write a separate post on this. If you are experiencing this same issue (WiFi not working or missing on settings icon] then i hope this post might help you too.

Oops, something has gone wrong. Please contact your software vendor. Network Manager needs to be running, no wifi adapter found error in Kali Linux [Solved]


Hmm, i will share the solution with my personal experience. I was also once a learner and new to Linux world. In order, to learn fast i tried experimenting few things like running multiple commands at once (i tried to do a kinda of scripting, which ofcourse went in vain). Result ? some how My WiFi got disabled. When i opened Settings icon and clicked on WiFi option now it says, " Oops, something has gone wrong. Please contact your software vendor. Network Manager needs to be running" I was like ok, network manager needs to be running right? so let's start network Manager. 

I opened terminal, and ran service network-manager restart as root. Now i got added problem. After running the above command now, my WiFi option was gone, it was missing from the settings. I did searching for it and Finally found the option but this time one more greeting from my Kali linux machine "No WiFi adapter found" Make sure you have a WiFi adapter plugged and turned on" i was little bit shocked and thought "Ok, Congrats we had successfully disabled the WiFi adapter on hardware level", now what? do i had to break the laptop and open the trays/circuits, to find missing WiFi device or write some coding to restore the Wifi services? no way! i tried to recall all the things i did but nothing worked. Finally i tried one crazy idea the monitoring WiFi networks around me and surprisingly i found the solution with that, because the device successfully scanned and listed the WiFi networks around me. With now, i found the rootcause, which is nothing but the WiFi being in monitored mode, i got back the WiFi.

Here, is what you have to do...

Open terminal as root by elevating permissions and stop the airomon-ng monitoring mode/service.

I.e; Open terminal and type sudo airmon-ng stop (Your WiFi interface name)

Example :  sudo airmon-ng stop wlan0

Make sure, you replace Wlan0 with your interface name. It might be Wlan0 on Some systems, and Wlan0mon on most of the systems. You can find your WiFi interface name on ifconfig and it failed try looking for the previous commands that you ran on the terminal.

After running that command, now restart the network manager. 

i.e.; Service network-manager restart

Now, go back to settings and see your WiFi will be there, which means our WiFi device was restored. 

-There is nothing wrong in breaking things, that's how you will learn new things :)

Happy breaking :)

Stop fearing about Windows 7 End of Support Jan 14,2020 - Here is what will happen after Jan 14, 2020 deadline

Ever since Microsoft announced that, support for Windows 7 is coming to end on Jan 14,2020 and Windows 7 end of Support will not be extended, most number of PC users whom pretty much use their PC just for viewing videos online,browsing Writing DVD's, and for other entertainment stuffs started to fear/ worry like their world is going to end and they have to build new Windows 10 PC to carry out their daily tasks, and to survive. This is evident after i started reading some of the weird questions like What i'm Supposed to do now, Windows 7 end of Support count down has begun ?, i don't have money to build my new PC ! and i'm being diagnosed for disease(disease name removed for privacy)..Can Somebody help? and on various Microsoft and Other forums of other sites.

Can i still use windows 7 after 2020?

If you are a Windows 7 OS user, then have such type of questions like the one above or want to know what will happen after Windows 7 end of support / What does it mean ?, then i would say, the first thing you have to do after Jan 14,2020 is to stop worrying/ fearing. End of Support just means your PC won't be getting updates from Microsoft through Windows update after that particular date. It doesn't mean your PC won't work or your PC will start crashing after that time.  You can still use your PC without updates. Yes, there are users who will update their PC once in a blue moon and there exists also users who will never update Windows after the particular incidents like updating breaking one main component, and Microsoft delivering another update to fix kinda things happening right now.

Stop fearing about Windows 7 End of Support Jan 14,2020 - Here is what will happen after Jan 14, 2020 deadline


So, what about harmful persons like hackers will they able to hack my PC after Windows 7 end of support ? yes! hackers can still hack your PC even if you have updated your PC to Windows 10 or Windows 11 if you follow unsafe browsing activities like downloading content from unverified sources, allowing apps to use your location, microphone and installing the apps that contains lot of adware. Only if you started following healthy browsing habits(an opposite to above), you might escape from the eyes of them. Remember they just use bugs which are more than thousand left unpatched even today. Just google or bing windows 10 bugs or Windows unpatched bugs, you can see shocking results like bug being patched after 20 years. So, does it mean those bugs are actively used for 20 years ? might be. Does upgrading to latest versions fixed the bug? the answer might be no. Because they were discovered just now and are being discovered now and then.

 I'm bit confused do i need to upgrade to Windows 10, is it really necessary ? 

Let's go straight to the point If you have money and can afford to build new PC for Windows 10 then you should go ahead and upgrade because it has built in antivirus and couple of new features to protect you incase if you are one of the member of unsafe browsing habit community. But if you are know what you are doing Online person, then you no need to upgrade immediately, just use the same PC and upgrade when you have money to build new PC just install any antivirus and use browser like Chrome (Which has now promised that it will deliver updates till 2021) for some time though it won't protect you 100 % it can still protect you for atleast 20-50% if there is any issue. 

You can also install Windows 10 for free if you wish to try.

Remember, your World won't end, when Support for your PC ends !

Comment if you have any doubts.!
